So I’ve been experimenting with using the parikamma or meditation word “metta” in the same way I’ve low-cost used the word buddho. And, surprisingly, so far the results have been quite good. I imagine that one reason for this is due to the fact that I’m staying with the theme of the brahmaviharas even while working with the breath so it gains a certain momentum.
Anyway, I’m finding myself pretty low energy today which is natural with a newborn in the house but I wanted to share my discovery. Sukhi hotu!
