I've been sick with a cold since Wednesday. It started with a few sneezes and grew into full blown drippy sinuses, congestion, coughing, aching head cold miserey. Finally I can sit upright without my head pounding so hard my spine vibrates. All that remains is the occasional coughing spurt and a stuffy nose.
Last night in the space between going to bed and falling asleep I followed A's lead and held people in the light. It was an amazingly peaceful feeling to be able to think about people and pray for them without having to come up with all the words, to know that my soul can convey what needs to be said without my brain getting in the way. The names that floated through were interesting. People I haven't thought about for years came to mind and as I thought about them I repeated "Be with them, bless them, love them, let them know they are loved, let them feel that they are loved." I imagined sending little packets of light to each person. It felt good to broaden the scope of my perspective. Sometimes (okay a lot of the time) I get tunnel vision. Life is about so much more than me, I want to see that more.

I hope you are feeling better soon. I hate having a cold, you're really not sick enough to stay in bed but you sure don't feel like doing anything else.

I am going to try to make the metta thing a regular practice with getting all religious about it.
