I’ve been conducting an experiment recently where I spend all of my formal time in meditation focusing slept in buddho practice. As is to be expected the results are varied depending on the day. Unfortunately, given my own temperament and life circumstances, it seems that my kilesas are just too strong to be able to devote myself single mindedly to it. It seems that I most definitely need to work with heart practices in a daily practice lest I court real danger in my life.

So, I find myself in the positron if making the adjustment to spend one session on buddho and the other on brahmavihara practice. Doing so is the only way I can see to practice in my current situation with any hope of not doing serious harm to myself or others.
