Brahma Viharas as mental creation

The only way that Metta started working for me as a feeling. Was when I started to send it to my country and other countries one by one. Then the whole world. I have a feeling because your using visualization and mental force to send the Metta. Its like considered that after it starts to truly work. You attaining one pointness of Mind was because you created the vihara. Brahma is another term for first teachers according Buddha. So first we teach the mind so it truly becomes Lovingkindness. (on side note jhanas doesn’t need that. It just takes time to arrive at that point)


Giving metta to different countries the way you described was the first way that started metta meditation working for me too. After a while other methods started working as well.
