Excerpt
Excerpt: Good will is the best medicine to cure the disease of anger and hatred. The medicine of good will is found in the Buddhist term metta, which has its root in the word for friend. This concept has much in common with the Confucian term Jen or human heartedness. Both terms describe a relationship to others that is predicated upon a feeling of genuine sympathy and warmth for an individual, not based on our relationship to him, but through an understanding of the human condition. We cannot rely on spontaneous warmth and love to arise whenever we deal with another human being, as these emotions are too infrequent. This is due to the overlay of conflicting conditioning in the ego.
