This morning I took 15 minutes to meditate before starting the day. I began with being aware of the breath and ask others objects in consciousness but about halfway I switched to Metta. I could feel that some of the warmth and softness around my heart from yesterday evening was still there. I imagined myself sitting before me in a chair. I noticed some closing of my heart so I said to him/myself ‘I am the one who is learning’. This helps me to look at myself with compassion instead of criticism and it helped to open up a bit again. I then repeated the Metta phrases to myself a couple of times.
May you be well
May you be happy
May you be peaceful and at ease
May you be liberated
I then did this for a loved one too and time was up.
