Metta: Loving Kindness

Very good conversation last week around the 4 Noble Truths (4NT).  This week we will explore the first of the Brahma Viharas – loving kindness.  We will talk about how and where it intersects with the 4NT.

Metta, which has been translated to mean loving kindness,  is a very commonly used term.  It relates to our softer loving or friendlier nature.  Metta is generally talked about in a gentle way because of this and can come across to the mind as being our weaker side.  The actual experience of metta, however, is more akin to confidence and capacity. Why do you think we see it as a weakness?

That’s our exploration on Thursday.
With a deep bow…
