Body in COVID Lockdown - Mind Abiding in Loving Kindness
Even if our physical body is confined in our house or appartment during the COVID lockdown, our mind still has the freedom to dwell in Loving Kindness ('Mettā'). The 'Divine Abode' of loving kindness is located internally in our consciousness. Thus it remains accessible, right inside our own heart, never mind where our physical body may be located.
Ajahn Dhammasiha reminds us that, rather than getting upset or depressed in lockdown, we can decide to dwell in the bright, beautiful and joyful 'Divine Abode' of unconditional, universal loving kindness, easily accessible in our own consciousness.
