Text of a talk on metta by Ayya Khema

I hadn't heard of this Bhikkhuni until Peter mentioned her in another thread, so I googled and found this talk. I enjoyed it and look forward to reading more from her.

"To reach beyond fear and danger we must sharpen and widen our vision. We have to pierce through the deceptions that lull us into a comfortable complacency, to take a straight look down into the depths of our existence, without turning away uneasily or running after distractions." -- Bhikkhu Bodhi

"No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same river and he's not the same man." -- Heraclitus
