Daily Kos diarist “Geenius at Wrok” has an affinity for vipassana meditation, and today writes at some length on his introduction to Sharon Salzberg’s teachings on metta (loving-kindness) practice. GaW even manages to send good thoughts to Sen. Chuck Grassley (überR-Iowa, pictured here)—no mean feat for a Daily Kos diarist. He also adds a political touch of his own, though, which some may consider cheating:
May you be free of pain and sorrow. May you also help end needless pain and sorrow caused by pvt health ins. WE NEED PUB OPT.
Still, I think I can learn something from him—he seems to have a better hang of this than I do! Take a look.
