Re: I broke a precept today...

you can do that, but you more cleanly break the cycle of lying by correcting it Conquer anger with lack of anger; bad, with good; stinginess, with a gift; a liar, with truth.

Re: mettā meditation

i've read that sutta quite a few times -- not sure if i'm not humble or content enough, but it does not feel particularly fruitful when i try to think 'may all beings be well, etc'. i have had some success but i have also had times where i think i was just on a euphoric rush or having a good day an...
