     leah THANK YOU sooo much, what a treasure you share. in teaching metta(love)-meditation to people what was stunning to me is that the friend, the neighbor, the opponent, the grumpy co-worker.......could be loved,  but the hardest one to love was oneself. within oneself the inner critic, the judger, the controler overwhelmed and could not be accepted.............for a while years back i looked every morning into the mirror and looked at myself from top to bottom, touched parts of my body i wanted specificly be friendly with and WELCOMED myself, SMILED at myself and said loud:  all of you sidharta is welcomed and appreciated AS YOU ARE, each atom and cell of you i send lovingkindness to.....THANK YOU for BEING here, sidharta just as you are !!!! every morning i walked away with a heart in ease, a smile and reminded myself during the day to shower myself with kindness and a smile........
