My therapist suggested that I develop the heart. When I look at the pattern of my life I can see that I need to do this. Perhaps not very often but I get angry for sure, and with the last people I want to get angry with:- my wife and my children. And I’ve had enough of that. And there are people I need to forgive: people whom I’ve worked with, my father and myself among others. So yes, I buy that observation.
Digging around in Vipassana, I came across the concept of metta, which translates as loving kindness. So I’ve made a decision to incorporate metta practise and in particular the one in IMCW. The first time I tried this was on the plane and my heart ached. It made me wonder how encrusted my heart is. I’ll keep with it for a while.
