I love you so much. xo

Thank you for this, Kira! I'm so intrigued by the phrase "dilute the heart's poison"! Is that yours, or is it handed down from other teachers, or...?
Kira Sloane
Hi Erika. I don't remember my teachers using that phrase, but i hesitate to claim ownership. These kind of practices have just always felt like an alchemical process of dilution. xok

This practice - it changes the energy you have with "that difficult person", so that when you actually meet the person, you're no longer standing in that confrontational duality, but rather in Rumi's field beyond... where real meeting can take place. Hari Om.

Kate, isn't that amazing? This practice has literally saved my life.

Hi, Kira! From the first day I started to do this your meditations of loving kindness, I also started to see and meet the people that are "difficult" to me and with whom I don't have good relationship and already then I started to apply these meditations of loving kindness also to them and I did my best to accept my feelings towards them and to accept them the best I can! Today's meditation was great and I agree with you that this is the most important meditation of all meditations here- it is easy to love the parts of you that are pleasant but it is not so easy to love and accept feelings that are not so pleasant and the peole who bring them to our consciousness! Thanks and kind regards!
