We have a nuclear reactor within us and a nuclear accident may be taking place inside right now. It’s urgent for us to understand how to heal and free ourselves from this toxicity, and from every form of violence. Meditate, live wisely, and practice kindness. Begin to reconcile the contamination in our minds with compassion, serenity and joy. What a magnificent offering of peace for our troubled world. A talk given at the Ottawa Buddhist Society in 2011.
