This morning I was blessed to be able to take the time to spend a little over a half an hour cultivating metta and karuna for myself and all beings. The heart is beginning to heal in the face of tragedy even if it is yet wracked by aftershocks despair and panic from time to time. 

Lest I forget, three is the number of my true enemies. Anger is the enemy. Greed is the enemy. Ignorance is the enemy. These foes need to be struck down wherever I find them but never should a pointed thought, a harsh word or a menacing hand be raised towards any living being with the thought that they can be won over to live through hatred. 

I have so much work to do transforming my heart. May I recall the blessings of adversity, view those who would harm me as true teachers and may I break free of the fetters binding need to samsara.
