Looking inward…

Adapted from my December 13, 2015 post

“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

Another week of too much manufactured outrage, too much distorted, or flat out inaccurate news, far too much focus on the noise and shiny objects without enough on the things that should matter has ended, 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.
