Why is it so hard to develop loving kindness toward ourselves? Our hearts are sensitive. They get wounded, bruised, broken. Today, you’ll learn how to love yourself back into an open heart by developing compassion for yourself. For if you have none, you won’t be able to freely give it to others. Embrace yourself in order to embrace others.

Thanks you this is just what i needed. My heart was full of pain, just leaving going trough big trauma of 7,8 earthquake i needed to recenter myself. Tears where flowing down like a water fall, embracing my scare little 5 years old was so revealing. Just thanks you and bless you, can wait to learn more. Wonderfull day to you

This was an incredibly beautiful session for me. It allowed me to have insights about myself, my mother, and myself as a mother. I am generally hypercritical and this allowed me to see a quality of love inside me that has always been there, has always been accessible and which I can now use for myself and for the ones I love. I am so excited to have found this wonderful pathway to peace.

I seemed to get anxiety while doing this meditation. My heart rejected my 5 year old self, I couldn't get it to have access.
Also, my heart didn't like me looking behind it. Thoughts?
I agree Greg's voice is great, and also I did this meditation on my dog instead and my heart was fine with it.
Any insights would be great ;)

I'm confused why people think children are great. I don't think they're positive at all. They're mean as a tyrant, horrible mood swings, helpless, demanding, and dumb. They tend to be weak, sick, and in pain. I realize the point is to develop compassion, not to convince us kids are great. Just a strange, common thing I see.

Dear McLaren,

Thanks for your warm comment.

May your practice bring you peace--and may that peace ripple out from you, positively affecting the rest of us.

Warmly,
Greg

Excellent! Greg Burdulis's voice is extremly soothing. I have listened and done the first 3 Episodes. Thank you for sharing this with us.

Gregory Burdulis, posted on January 4, 2016

Dear Brigit,

Thanks for your kind words.

I am pleased that you've done the episodes.

I hope they have helped you connect with the love that's always there, though often obscured in our busy days, like the sun hidden on a grey day. I hope your meditation practice can show what's beyond the clouds.

Warmly,
Greg

Dear Wayne,

Thanks for your kind words. I'm glad you were inspired to participate in the entire series. I hope it was helpful to you and deepened your capacity for love--for yourself and the rest of us, too.

Warmly,
Greg

Beautiful ways to self love. Your voice make a steady path to follow. Guided ways to self care, so ignored in our lives. I can see this as a daily school experience for children of all ages as an "of course" activity. I can appreciate the mistaken concept that it takes a supreme vigilance to do this kind of mindful activity when in actuality its effortless. What we guard ourselves from in painful experiences, and the guard that can be dropped in preparation for a problem that hasnt even happened, might actually be the wall that divides us off from easy access to peace at any! given moment.

Dear Lisa,

Thank you for your kind words.

Thanks too for you insights into self care, our children's education and the easy access to peace at any given moment.

May each of us learn this easy access and may we inspire each other to remember when we forget.

Warmly,
Greg
