Personal Qualities

I found the meditation Choosing Personal Qualities by Reuben Lowe this morning on Insight Timer particularly impactful.

In the meditation Reuben lists several personal qualities which come across masterfully with a feeling of flow. Being in the flow I responded to each in my heart and mind.

I also noticed that my response was different for each quality when seeing it projected toward others vs. toward myself.

So here are the qualities and my heartfelt flow state responses to it.

Conclusion

I bookmarked this meditation to repeat it periodically. Striking is the difference between how I perceive the qualities toward others vs. toward myself. There is much insight to be gained in this meditation.

I wonder how my responses will be in a year from now.
