Practice metta this week while walking down the street. Send lovingkindness to all beings on the street without discrimination. Walk at a normal pace and begin by directing metta toward yourself. As different beings pass by offer metta, “May you be content. May you have ease of well being…” You don’t know who will arise in your awareness—friends, neutral people, those that bring up fear or aversion. See this exercise as an adventure in metta, not knowing who will arise in your field of attention moment after moment. Include other beings besides humans in your practice. Alternate between yourself and other beings as you practice metta.
