Lovingkindness #buddhism #mindfulness #lovingkindness

The practice of lovingkindness

can be easily misused

for having nice feelings

about people who are not nice to you,

and worse, 

being nice to people who are not nice to you.  

 

True lovingkindness comes from hard-won wisdom,

not from sitting in a room by yourself

with your eyes closed

and projecting positive energy

to mean people outside of the room you are sitting in.
