Ajahn Brahm on metta - coming from the heart
- "When you come from the heart, you can feel for yourself, you can be
at peace with yourself, you can be caring to yourself. When I come
from the heart, I can appreciate other peoples' hearts as well. That
is how we can love our enemies, when we appreciate their hearts,
seeing something there to love, to respect."
~ Ajahn Brahmavamso, "On Making a Mistake"
