“We don’t have to wait for death to approach
to liberate ourselves from hatred.
We can begin by asking ourselves,
have I loved enough—
within my house,
beyond my doors,
and into the world?
Have I expressed the loving being that I am?
Have I borne this love
even when someone’s heart is closed to it?”
