I think 43 has so many levels to it, and is where our practice really deepens. At first when we begin to practice mindfulness, we tend to judge our thoughts and emotions as 'good' and 'bad' - the ones we think we should change or get rid of and the ones we accept. As we continue on the path we begin to deepen our view to realize ALL our thoughts and emotions are objects of the mind, and that even includes our ideas about enlightenment and spirituality itself. Then we can really settle into a new kind of openness that allows us to experience reality directly. Before that, we are blocking it in some way, even if it's with 'positive' thoughts.

47- Just read that some people died ,not wanting to leave behind their pets.If one wants to attain Nirvana,no fetters or attachments must remain.

I for myself ,love animals more than humans.Imagine the attachment of the dead people for an animal .One chooses to die
with it's pet!

48-In The Meditation on Compassion,it is written,

Perfect in all merits,beholding all sentient beings with Compassionate eyes,making the ocean of blessings limitless.Before this one ,we should incline.Practice looking at all beings with the eyes of compassion: This is called The Meditation on compassion.

Loong's comment: Compassion and fetters are total opposites.One
can love a sentient being ,but without the
attachment,attachment creates craving ,craving
creates suffering.So people are so attached that they die with their pets!Which in reality was a source of some happiness and also suffering

Choose.

49-When your mind is liberatedyour heart floodswith Compassion:Compassion
For yourself,for having undergone countless sufferings because you were not yet able
to releive yourself of false views,hatred,ignorance,and anger;and compassion for others because they do not yet see and so are still imprisoned by false views,hatred,ignorance and continue to create suffering for themselves and for others.

Text by TNH.

Loong,s comment.Compassion when compassion becomes part of your way of
living,compassion for others does so also.Those that have not yet attained such a
distance on their path,will suffer for not being able to share such compassion with others.

50-From my sri-lankan Bhikkhu
Friends:Thought solidifies into kammically effective behaviour!The thought manifests as the word. The word manifests into acted out behaviour!
The deed develops into habit, which hardens into deep-grown stubborn character!
So watch the thought and its ways with care and let it spring from infinite friendliness;
Born out of kindness for all sentient beings. Ignorance leads to ego, Ego leads selfishness,
Selfishness leads to aversion, Aversion leads to anger,
Anger leads to hatred, Hatred leads to Suffering´┐Ż The creator of man was greed, For countless lives this was his drive.
With Ignorance at its helm, it grows! No end for it until he knows...Therefore: Watch the Thought Manifestation!

51- Hate, resentment,are tools from Mara.
Love,comprehension,compassion are tools from Buddha.
One must choose what he puts in his tool-box!
