The true face or nature of loving-kindness does not exist in any form or character of this or that. It is free from conditions. It is beyond the four extremes—existence; non-existence; ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼neither existence nor non-existence; and both existence and non-existence.

It is important for us to reflect on how we got to where we are today and how we can change in the future. Let me illustrate how our thoughts and feelings can change the quality and direction of our life.
