You can’t get a bus pass in Birmingham at 60
nor in sheffield
Big birthday wishes. Beautiful meditation. 🙏🏻
Happy Birthday if you were here you would have free weekend travel
Do you try to be mindful all the time?
You said that you were not taught the metta bhavana particularly well. How could it be taught better?
I’m interested in understanding how we know we’ve really stopped enough to then realise. Or do the 2 keep happening back and forth?
Q: When I focus on points of tension, I feel like I’m being empathetic but if I really tune in I can feel a subtle push for iy to relax that then I can feel it making it more tense… i try to just breathe and relax more but are there any more tips - should I move focus somewhere else?
I have just turned 80 so have to be empathetic about my aging body. Actually I am finding this easier. Any comment?
@maitreyabandhu So many benefits to being 60+. Enjoy! Not just the free bus rides :)
My body has been a source of shame and suffering for practically all my life, with illness and disability…its hard to feel empathy with it when its such a problem…how do I get through that?
Happy Birthday , Colin
Q: Since I’ve “become a Buddhist” I sometimes feel like I’m doing a lobotomy on my own mind. I get too caught up in all the instructions and teachings etc. How can one find the balance between neurotic striving and deep longing for Enlightenment?
Now the voice volume is clear. During meditation instructions it was far too soft to hear fo4 my 72 year old ears. In future meditation guidance, can you please keep the voice volume as speaking out to the room please🙏❣️
Yes, I had trouble hearing too.
Virginia I recommend headphones or higher volume on your computer if you can
We’ve been listening to your talks on ratnasambhava lately and building the monastery keeps coming up for me as much as the demons taking the building down at night.. do you have some insight on cultivating empathy for having attachment towards the demons as they’re so familiar and comforting because of that familiarity
I was using head phones but it was still very faint

Thanks for the perspective on becoming a good manager to myself! Seems obvious really, we’ve all been asked to self-manage so many times (it usually feels sticky and unhelpful). Helps if you’ve had a great manager (which I currently do, actually). I’m going to try to start Channeling the good manager! Love it.
During the meditation it was difficult to hear you. But not your normal speaking voice :)
I also had hearing aids in and at full volume it was too faint. I find it a common problem during meditation instructions only.
Thank you Maitreyabandhu and everyone.
Thank you so much for today!
