Having metta for the conditions of our minds and bodies

“Before we can start making great changes in society, we have to start with ourselves, having metta for the conditions of our minds and bodies…When we do not have metta, we tend just to react to those conditions with a desire to annihilate, and the desire to annihilate always takes us to despair.”

-Ven. Ajahn Sumedho, ‘Peace is a Simple Step’.
