Looking inward…

“Instead of hating the people you think are war-makers, hate the appetites and disorder in your own soul, which are the causes of war. If you love peace, then hate injustice, hate tyranny, hate greed – but hate these things in yourself, not in another.”
― Thomas Merton

As another week of too much manufactured outrage, far too much Donald Trump, far too many pieces of distorted, or flat out inaccurate historical information, ends, and a new one is likely beginning, I wish that those I know who are so full of manufactured hate that they’ve stopped looking at anything objectively, would look inward to find out why.

Change always has to start within.
