I’ve been listening to a discussion on the Diamond Sutra. What has really struck me is that Subhuti‘s major practice was Metta. There is a man who received Buddha’s most profound teaching on No Concept and his basis was compassion.

I skipped Metta for the past couple of weeks and it’s absence is really noticeable.

Not getting
Not arriving
It is.
Not giving
Not appreciating
It is.
No concept of self
No concept of other
It is just so.

So, it’s back to Metta practise. Perhaps taking 20 minutes off dhyana on the breath in the morning. That’s the best way I think to get it into daily practise.
