Speaking of Violence

If we can deal with the craziness of the mind, we can help to decrease the craziness and violence of the world. But we have to be so patient and keep faith with the process of of cleaning up our own violence. Even when the mind is hot, there will be some good will that we can touch – if we lean towards that which is kind and gentle – harmless – this can lead us towards fearlessness and acceptance. A talk given at an Ottawa Buddhist Society Day of Mindfulness, July 2014.
