GUIDED MEDITATION: Boundless Metta in Lockdown
In this guided meditation, Ajahn Dhammasīha points out that the location of our physical body does not necessarily have to be where our mind is located.
Even if our physical body is confined in a lockdown, our mind can dwell in the divine abode of infinite, unconditional loving kindness to all beings.
"In gladness and in safety, may all beings be at ease"
continuously in our mind like a little mantra, consistently and mindfully. As we're repeating these words, we put our heart into it, we really mean it, and we mindfully notice how the intention of non-judgemental, unconditional good will naturally arises. We also notice that this intention is connected with an exquisite happiness, a buoyant emotion of calmful joy, which we fully relish and allow to unfold until it suffuses our whole body & mind.
