Chuck Grassly Sharon Salzberg Tricycle blog 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.
