The Buddha first taught loving-kindness to a group of monks who had been practicing meditation in a forest.

Have you ever seen night going? Very few people even become aware of things which are happening every day. Have you ever seen the evening coming? The midnight and its song? The sunrise and its beauty?
We are behaving almost like blind people. In such a beautiful world we are living in small ponds of our own misery. It is familiar, so even if somebody wants to pull you out, you struggle. You don't want to be pulled out of your misery, of your suffering. Otherwise there is so much…

1. you realize a lightworker is not someone who fixes lights and a wayshower is not a traffic attendant
2. you realize a 'channeler' is not someone who programs DVD players
3. you realize that 'guides' are not necessarily for foreign visitors who can't read maps
4. you realize that doing a 'reading' is not telling stories
So it is that existence and non-existence give birth the one to (the idea of) the other; that difficulty and ease produce the one (the idea of) the other; that length and shortness fashion out the one the figure of the other; that (the ideas of) height and lowness arise…Continue
