Change of Plans

For the last few years I have been working primarily with metta bhavana but have felt kind of stymied. Each day that passes I have felt an increasing serve of Ajahn at the way the world is quickly deteriorating add realize that the only true refugee is the Dhamma. In short, I want to make the most of this life in the time I have left and out seems to me that anything short of stream entry is to risk falling into the bottomless chasm of samsara. 

As a result, I took Venerable Samahita up on his offer to recommend suitable subjects for meditation. The result was that he suggested I alternate between asubha and anapanasati, doing metta only when aversion arises. It’s an about face for sure but I have a feeling that he is right and will commit to it for a year and then reevaluate at that time. 

Many thanks go to the venerable and I ask that you consider supporting his work if you feel inspired to do so.
