Morning Meditation Sit — Not Hating those We Hate — Av Week 2
We sit this week in the energy of Tisha B’Av—the fast day of the 9th of Av, which we observe Saturday evening and Sunday.
Be aware of the hatred that grows in your heart, this season calls. Hatred can so easily take root—it finds justification and energy—and it only leads to destruction and ruin. This is a time to practice radical empathy and to make a commitment to see the humanity in all, even in those with whom we deeply disagree. We sit opening to the wells of compassion.
