Before you love others, it is more important to love yourself and that too unconditionally, without any expectations. The love should emanate from the feeling of goodness only that does not care about making judgments. Think about how you feel when you look upon a newborn. You just look at it as a bundle of joy that can keep you happy even without being able to give anything to you. You develop the attitude of forgiveness by overlooking faults while concentrating only on the peace that you enjoy from loving yourself and others unconditionally. It is like loving and loving just because you do not know anything better.

When you attain the state of mind that enables you to shower unconditional love, you start enjoying an endless inner peace that leads to happiness. However, the important thing is that you have to acquire the attitude by practicing Metta meditation, the Buddhist meditation that foster kindness and love that you spread around to make the world a beautiful place for living. The act of love gives so much peace of mind that you would like to spread the message of love for a happy life.

Looking beyond self

Self-betterment is at the heart of many techniques of meditation except for love and kindness meditation that turns the focus on others. In this aspect, love and kindness medication is entirely different from techniques like Transcendental Meditation and many others where self-development and self – awareness is the only goal. Learning to be compassionate with yourself and others is the essence of love and kindness meditation that shows the way to love all without any expectations. Although you must learn to love yourself first and be kind to yourself, you develop the ability to be compassionate to others by practicing meditation of the Metta kind.

The Penalty Factor

The SEO novices are scared of penalties after the introduction of updates such as Penguin and Panda. These newcomers to SEO are apprehended of the fact that even small mistakes could get penalties and their rankings would fall drastically.
