Embracing the World with Loving-kindness 

After the events of two days ago, I’m even more determined not to allow myself to give way to anger in my mind, speech and bodily behavior. It sends to me that the only real way to do this is to embracing everything that comes in at the sense doors with metta but this is much more difficult than it would at first seem. If nothing else though, it is a good practice to see just how much aversion, judgement, fear and criticism there is in the mind and how rare it is to feel loving-kindness for others. 

May we all be well, happy and peaceful! 

May we grow in the Dhamma and release ourselves from suffering!
