Yesterday’s meditation was on equanimity. I felt like all the people around me had taken off their masks, and I could see then clearly – not as friends, strangers or enemies – but as people who I can feel warm ad friendly towards without exception.

Today’s meditation drew on this, and once again their masks were removed at a deeper level to reveal their true identity as my mothers. I felt completely surrounded by my mothers and the holy beings, and focused on that feeling of safety and joy.
