A Scale Over the Heart 

For reasons that completely escape me, there is an almost cyclical pattern to the practice. At times, I am able to connect quickly and deeply to metta and karuna while at others, it feels as though a scale had grown over my heart. I have a sneaking suspicion that this scale had grown there to protect me from the discomfort of opening to the pain of others but I may be wrong. As always, the only sure thing is to keep practicing, too keep trying different techniques and approaches to soften and remove the scales.
