Sometimes in meditation we can get restless and start thinking. Ajahn Brahm says that this is our mind's reaction to pain and discomfort. Ajahn encourages us to be kind and gentle to our discomforts and sooner or later the pain tends to disappear. Please support the BSWA in making teachings available for free online via Patreon.

Venerable Hasapanna talks about skillful ways to give loving kindness to yourself, in meditation and in practice, with many examples from her own life. Venerable emphasises sending loving kindness towards yourself because your priority should be your own wellbeing as it is most important you take care of yourself.
