Low

This weekend had been exceedingly difficult despite the fact that i saw it coming. Fortunately i took the time tonight to sit for hour alternating between anapanasati and metta and i can now at least see the depressed and self-loathing mind states as impermanent and not-self. Funny how quickly we can forget but i guess that’s just a symptom of a mind overcome by delusion.

  1. Yeah, it’s amazing how our mind/mood changes like the weather. I’m glad its a little sunnier for you. 🙂

  2. I’m very sorry to learn you are having a crap time, Mike. I wish there is something I can do or say. I’ll be thinking of you tonight when I practice metta bhavana.
    With metta,
    Ben
