It would be helpful to Explore the formula for True Happiness:

I to the 3rd Impermanence Intention Integrity + Compassion – Attachment to Outcome = True Happiness

Taking a moment to consider Intentions as free will expressed, the only thing we have control over or who you are when you act. For the Metta Method to be successful clear intention is critical. Beyond intention there are too many variables in life out of our control. Integrality, the degree of honesty to self and others is critical to your success and well-being.

Accepting that everything is impermanent reduces disappointment. When you trust in the process you can give up attachment to outcome you become free to be creative and honest without fear of judgment, shame or guilt.

In the Metta process you may decide with new knowledge that past idea or behaviors are not desirable for replication, and to continue would be shameful. (this is insight and wisdom)

Too often blame, shame, and guilt are used indiscriminately in many forms of human dialog, either with ourselves or with others, the goal being to seek advantage or harm, consciously or unconsciously, to ourselves or another. This behavior shatters kindness and is incompatible with the process of The Metta Map, The Formulas and Equations for True Happiness.

We wish all of you Metta, that you may be happy, live well, with peace in your Heart free from fear, anger, greed, envy and despair.
