Joseph Goldstein: Make Peace
The commitment to morality, or non-harming, is a source of tremendous strength, because it helps free the mind from the remorse of having done unwholesome actions.
Freedom from remorse leads to happiness.
Happiness leads to concentration.
Concentration brings wisdom.
And wisdom is the source of peace and freedom in our lives.
— A Heart Full of Peace by Joseph Goldstein
