I just wanted to share an instance of microscopic size metta that has left me happy for the last 12 hours and has no sign of abating
I know we all do this all the time, but occasionally it’s nice to have a little reminder of how small acts of kindness can yield meaningful results .
Most people don’t feel much goodwill towards mosquitos. Last night as a lean and hungry mosquito was buzzing around me, I decided to have a close look at it. So lean and emaciated… abdomen almost non-existent… Anyway I decided that I could spare a drop of blood to give it a good meal. I held our my arm, and it landed gently and proceeded to drill for a drink As I watched it drink it’s fill and then gently fly away to live it’s mosquito life, I felt very happy.
The point of this is that usually I have a strong reaction with a big itchy lump rising up on the site of the mosquito bite… Not this time!! The whole tiny tiny episode was not insignificant, I’m still happy.
Metta to all beings and may you all experience a peaceful and calm day
