Identifying and acknowledging our habitual thought patterns is the first step in developing a greater sense of awareness regarding our moment-to-moment existence. In Episode 28 of the Metta Hour Podcast, “Training Attention: Metta,” Sharon discusses how the meditative process is rooted in this recognition and subsequent experimentation with the methods that best align with where we are right now. We are asked to step out of the race for acquisition in order to begin the journey of cultivation. Our capacity to love, to connect, to share, and to see can be obscured but is never destroyed. In practice we are invited to return, abide, and dwell in the flourishing of our potential.
