Welcome, today I was very busy, I didn't get to complete my personal plans but I did exercise for an hour. I want you all to know I am grateful we are here because we are right on time for our purpose and our assignment in life.
1. I thought the practices were alike in one main way and that is they both focus on breathing. Breathing is the catalyst in helping the transformation. They both are training the mind to reach higher levels of consciousness.
The practices have two different goals we are seeking to achieve. The lovingkindness practice is intended to guide our breathing to heal the suffering as we decrease our focus on ourselves and our needs as we transfer compassion onto others. the primary goal is to create a heart felt lovingkindness that diminishes your self centeredness and quiets your mind.
The subtle mind is more intentional and purposeful process. Our goal is to cultivate wisdom by training and taiming the mind. We are reaching toward psychospiritual flourishing. The subtle mind practice is the strive for unity consciousness and pure awareness.
