I think this is the beauty of the meditation based on the single pointed ‘consciousness’, shall we say, of loving kindness of everyone in the world, including one’s ownself! I find this diversity amazing. One the one hand, one finds easy to focus on one’s ownself, and another person can easily widen oneself to the world!
