though my main practice is sitting meditation, Shamatha (Sanskit for peaceful abiding, “Shyine ” in Tibetan), i am leaning into and benefitting from practicing Metta (Pali for loving-kindness, “Maitri” in Sanskrit) more regularly during this challenging time.
here is a Metta verse i wrote for myself in my practice quite a while back. though i’ve shared it before, i wanted to share it again, since it may be useful to reflect on for others as well.
may all be at ease and free from suffering.
