We have heard this morning of the heart-breaking news of the killing and injury of groups of people by others, in your countries. It brings us terrible sadness, especially when we recognize that there is no country, and no one of us individually, who is free inside of us from the same kind of violence. We pledge to all of you brothers & sisters that for the next year, daily, we will add—into our daily meditations—prayers and contemplations about where this violence comes from, and how to stop it by changing ourselves: by reading and re-reading the explanations from our lineage linked below, and trying to follow them hour by hour in our own lives.
