Finding the Feeling

The past few days I’ve been having some problems connecting to a feeling of loving-kindness in my practice. Normally I begin with myself but doing so failed to elicit any emotional response. I recalled that the point is to find the feeling and then expand upon it so I turned to my youngest daughter and I suddenly felt a warmth where there was a dull numbness before. 

Learning not too be so rigid and to be willing to experiment has been a constant struggle for me but has been so very worth it. I am always inclined just to power through anything but such persistence in absence of wisdom didn’t produce many good results. May I have the clarity of vision and wisdom to see the point of the practice and find the methods to achieve it.
