Interdependent individual ~ 17th Karmapa

We need other possibilities for understanding who we are as individuals. On a personal level, exploring what it means to be an interdependent individual allows us to stop living at odds with reality. As we gain a more realistic understanding of who we are and how we are interconnected, our lives can become much more satisfying and meaningful.
In other words, “interdependent individual” is not a contradiction. Far from being an oxymoron, this term can be a powerful guide leading us to take better charge of our own lives.
