I just did about 5 minutes of Loving-Kindness meditation. I was distracted, not bored but it felt awkward and kinda corny – I think I have a lot of defenses against such a vulnerable experience – I suspect this is a very good exercise for me. I plan to do it every day for the next week and see how that feels.
Good to notice what comes up for you. Thank you for sharing. I have felt this way too. Loving kindness is a deeper exercise than we have done previously. We have been building up to it. It’s why I have it midway through the course and not at the beginning. This kindness muscle is something that we don’t emphasize in our society.
