Viewing our relationship to others, the world - are we projecting our dissatisfaction onto the world. Our state of mind affects how we view the world. What is the difference between loneliness and solitude - our state of mind. What are we willing to set aside for the Dhamma - our opinions, taking sides, clinging to our beliefs… Using the five precepts as practices to guide us in our relationships. Our wisdom is acted out in our behavior Can we give up what we want to do to do to think of what others would like. Can we give up our clinging, can we give up being right? Do our opinions enhance our suffering or reduce it? Rather can we bring Metta to all our relationships.
