The quality of friendless is expressed as warmth that reaches out and embraces others. When loving kindness practise matures it naturally overflows into compassion, as one empathizes with other people’s difficulties: on the other hand one need to be wary of pity,as its near enemy as its merely mimics the quality of concern without empathy.The positive expression of emphty is an appreciation of other people’s good quality and good fortune, or apprentice joy rather than feelings of jealousy towards them. This series of meditation comes to maturity as on- looking equanimity.This engage equanimity must be cultivate within the contix of this series of meditation, or there is aricks of its manifesting as its near enemy, indifference or aloofness. So, ultimately you remain kindly diposed and caring toward everybody with an equal spread of loving feeling and acceptance in all situation and relationship.The practise always begins with developing a loving acceptance of yourself.If resistance is experienced then it indicates that feelings of self doubt or negativity.
