consciousness & metta quote

There is good reason to believe, intuitively at least if not on the basis of hard evidence, that the very nature of consciousness is a well-spring of loving kindness. It is said that the very quality of Buddha Nature is that of inexhaustible love, and it is already there.

If the potential for Buddhahood is within all of us, then the potential for metta certainly is.
