Can it be a stranger who was kind to you once? I don’t know their name or where they are right now but I suppose I would feel more positive towards her as opposed to neutral.. I would just like to wish her well i guess :)

Q. Thank you so much for this week. “May I/they make progress’ feels different to the other 3 statements. Please can you able to say more about it?
Sue Bishop
01:26:23
That was quite a journey for me. I have the same sea of tears as the person who asked about crying. For me it feels purifying and healing to release that emotion trapped inside me.
Victoria's iPhone
01:26:47
Q: I found quite difficult to concentrate today, I had loads of thoughts coming in that distracted me and towards the end just felt bad with myself for not being able to control, any tip/recommendation? is this usual to happen?

Vidyamala
Sam
01:31:08
Q. with the Metta practice i struggle not to get lost in thoughts of analysing or trying to guage the other person’s current state of wellness/happiness. Today i met a point where i realised it helped to just focus on the energy of the wish for them to have these- is this where the emphasis should be?
carolineangenieux
01:32:04
Thank you, I’ll check out Vidyamala . It’s more the overwhelm of sensations that leads to shut down
Katarzyna Plesniar
01:32:55
Is it possible/when to include all sentient beings in the meditation, i.e animals?
