Have you ever heard of the Loving-Kindness meditation or metta? This is a specific kind of love that is used in many religious traditions, as a form of love distinguished by acts of kindness. I have encountered this practice through Buddhist teachings when I took the course, Birth and Death with the Chair and Professor of Sociology, Becky Thompson.
My experience with this specific Loving-Kindness exercise may be different than the ones you will find on the Internet, so I want to share it with you.
