Inner peace

This is from An Interrupted Life:

Ultimately, we have just one moral duty: to reclaim large areas of peace in ourselves, more and more peace, and to reflect it towards others. And the more peace there is in us, the more peace there will also be in our troubled world.

--Etty Hillesum

I would not begin to know how to do this were it not for meditation. It is through meditative practice that we are able to cultivate peace within.
