good morning from Dover/Deal.
I can't hear but will sit quietly with you anyway. x
morning all... from Birmingham 🙏🏼
Thank you that was lovely
q) It's not okay for people to be who they are if the way they are is attacking and controlling....Its not helpful in a May They Be Well sense to abide it. Can you say something about times where the power of No is important. Not listening and welcoming others, but saying No. People have wrong views all the time and attack with them... Welcoming and listening can only take you so far sometimes.

Thank you for the beautiful words at the beginning!

Q: Breathing in difficulty and breathing out metta sounds interesting, is that related to the practice of Tonglen?
Thank you...a beautiful start to the morning
Many thanks, Colin Geens
q: what would be the antidote for guilt? Thank you!
Thank you. You speak really well from your heart. I hope your situation in India will improve. Miriam
I had a very powerful sense of pain in the 4th stage and wondered about the part this plays in difficulties in relationships and difficulties with metta
Q. I found this a sad MB. During my life I've had 3 very Good Friends who have gone. If a Good Friend came to my door, it would be a ghost. How do you suggest doing this second stage?
Thank you that was a wholesome start to the day. I have to get off to work soon. 🙏🏽
thank you very helpful 🙏

Thanks so much everyone. I find your guidance and teaching so helpful. And will be writing more cards to friends to say how much I appreciate them!
That was great Akashamitra, really useful to connect to the breath & body, sometimes I get 'heady' when I do the metta but not today :-)
Really lovely guidance this morning, thank you!
Thank You! Love to all from SE Kent. X
in coming into relationship with someone with whom I had difficulties I realised that underneath the anger there is a lot of pain
thankyou, just beautiful.. I'm dealing with illness and have not been outside my gate since march... this last weekend I hit a wall and I was in hard on myself.. then I started practicing gratatude for what I have.. ie. beautiful garden.. but your wise words will help me take my metta towards myself and others. oh and I know that anger too.. kindness. kindness. kindness all the way.. thankyou.
Q I used my old Head where I used to teach as my difficult person. I found met with her very hard as she had such a negative impact on the school and staff and she seemed very arrogant and a bit mean. I found the only way I could have met was to hope that she would experience things that would help her learn to listen to others. Is that a poor use of metta?!
Thank you for this morning, I hope you all have a lovely day x
Q: sometimes in the end stages i can’t quite bear how much terrible stuff is happening in the world and i don’t really know what to do with that and end up feeling quite useless/selfish. any tips?
Thank you Akashamitra and everyone, lovely start to the day. x
Thank you yes and thank you for the teaching and meditation

Nice to see familiar faces from the Journey and Guide course and from around the Lbc. metta Sajjana x
Ok flawed strategies that makes sense
Good morning Guilhem and Akashamitra. Your words about taking things personally really resonated this morning. I’m aware of how difficult I find it letting go of hurt and harm and how I nurse the sadness. I’m aware of lots of sadness rising up and I’m working with that. Thanks for helping your words are very affirming.
