I live my life in metaphors. And if one believes this realm is a reflection of a spiritual realm, perhaps it is one big metaphor. As metaphors in writing convey hidden meaning, this realm brings hints of meaning of the spiritual. It can be a challenge to walk the path, as a soul with a body, on the shore where the material meets the spiritual in this many times, seemingly cruel world, with pure kindness. What is the purpose of offering kindness? Is it for some eternal reward or because it is the right thing to do whether the act is acknowledged in either realm or not?
What’s the Metaphor?

So what is the metta for?
So Zen. So what then?
