Suggested tips for a loving-kindness meditation:
First cultivate loving-kindness toward oneself first and always.
After that will be :
A respected, beloved person - such as our father, mother, our spiritual teacher;
A dearly beloved - which could be a close family members or friends;
A neutral person - somebody you know, but have no special feelings towards, e.g.: a person who serves you in a shop;
A hostile person - someone you are currently having difficulty with.
And conclude loving-kindness reflection at the end of this session to all living-beings.
