Metta Zetty brings heart, clarity, and simplicity to a subject
too long thought to be the exclusive domain of saints, monks
and holy men. The awareness of who we are is the birthright
of everyone on this planet. This Awareness is what we are
and have always been, but we have simply forgotten this fact.
By remaining down to earth and approachable, Metta brings
this recognition out of the monasteries and ashrams and into
our daily lives where it is so desperately needed. She does
not put herself on a pedestal, but instead takes our hands,
and like a true friend, leads us home.
[In your mentoring exchanges you are...] communicating from
the Openness, with warmth and caring. You are doing great
work, reaching people and sharing with them the experience
of edgeless being. Richard Lang

If you like the Nonduality Salon website, you will love Metta's
work. As I see it, other than web sites and email communities,
there are three main publications in the English language
dedicated to nonduality: Inner Directions, Noumenon, and the
Awakening Into Awareness ezine. I like AIA's Ezine because
it acknowledges our existence here, it is all-embracing and
it is distributed freely.
Your enthusiasm is contagious and operates as a teaching
vehicle in its own right. It literally transmits expansive
spiritual energy. I felt it immediately upon reading your
message -- and that is not a common experience for me.
On the Internet it has happened only once before....This
ability is a highly useful teaching and transforming tool
that only some teachers seem to have.

I am feeling resonance with what you say, and that is
why I wanted to include your quotes and your web site
in my book. I am grateful for your ideas, and I am sure
you are a great source of inspiration to many.
This is such a simple statement that has touched me
so profoundly! It opened a door that I feel like I've been
pounding on to open! I awoke this morning with this
thought; it was glorious.
I have the problem of usually making things harder
than they need to be, and self-doubt has been a struggle.
I just discovered the main root of that from this quote.
I do make an effort to do what's right, and I'm good at
making those decisions. Now I know that. My problem
has been in judging the outcome of my actions, and
wondering why things didn't turn out better -- or how
I thought they should!
What a relief, and how simple: I can trust myself to
do what is right, for myself and those around me. I have
been judging my choices and decisions by outcome,
not on the merit of action. L. B.
It's been a joy reading your reflections on the web....
It's really, really wonderful....I can't tell you the sudden
feeling of relief that I felt yesterday....I have been quite
obsessed recently with the thought: "If I am all there is,
why am 'I' still not seeing it, feeling it?"
By reading your words, I gently realized that, yes,
I am expecting 'That' to look in a particular way, and
myself feel in a different way NOW....and I saw again that
I completely overlook the fact that 'That' -- whatever the
configuration of IT at this particular moment -- is IT...
I see my mind has been instinctively running forward
to get something else, believing it is not good enough,
not exciting enough -- and wanting something else!
Being with you has really been a real gift and treat.
I haven't consciously asked to find someone new. My
room is filled up with good books on the subject, yet I
felt stuck, and from that 'stuckness' I've been feeling
very short tempered, frustrated, not knowing which
book to pick to find relief....And then you appeared...
melting the 'darkness', putting everything back on solid
ground with so much simplicity and so much love.
Thank you so very much, Metta. A.H.
Thank you for the beautiful morning messages. What
a wonderful gift! B. L.
I have so many wonderful moments printed and taped
all over the place. They are such great reminders!
#402 has really helped in the decision process! I
have it taped on the side of my monitor. #457 truly
helps in the pain-without-suffering department....
Metta, you are such a blessing in my life. Your
love, compassion and gratitude come through
your messages so strongly, and you are making
my journey so much easier. I cannot thank you enough!
This reflection was fantastic: "My desire for change is
simply one more aspect of the present circumstance."
That confirmed my own realisation. Thank you for the
great work you are doing. Keep it up.
I enjoyed the letter with your communication with Ku Ye.
My impression of the gist of the conversation was that
"Our perception of life through the ego is like our
perception of the world through the hotel room peephole.
What we see is only a minute fraction of the whole."
I want to tell you that your letter with the renaming of
"Aloneness" into "Wholeness" has done its job slowly and
unexpectedly. I feel much better, and thank you very much.
This exploration is void therapy from beyond the contracted
self. I just re-read our last chat....Extraordinary Metta, your
competence and energy are amazing. Thank you again for
helping me to re-enter that spaciousness and ordinariness
that I had almost given up on. R.P.
Metta has a talent for cutting through the concepts around
Awakening...directly to the experience itself. She is skillful
in gently pointing the way for me...back to the place I have
never really left. W. P.
Your site and services are a wonderful combination
of spirit and modern communications.
Australian Centre for Inner Peace
I have never in my life read or received anything like
your response to me tonight. You are an amazing teacher!
Your capacity to see how the trajectory of a particular
thought will manifest is extraordinary. Your clarity about
the truer abiding is exquisite and the extreme gentle care
you offer, as way of refocusing is the closest thing to
"spiritual mothering" I've ever felt. C. D.
Reading your account of your epiphany at the Rodeway Inn
struck a deep personal chord....I spent the day at 10,000
feet on a pass in the Sierras. Before I left, I printed out
your "Epiphany at the Rodeway Inn" and took it with me to
read with lunch. It was perfect company, and matched an
experience I also have had. Actually reading about it in
your words brought it back just as strong as it was 7
It was a few hours after I had read your story and I had
actually started back home, when suddenly I could take
a deeper breath. Everything lit up. The sun on the pine
needles, the sparkle of the stream I was driving along,
each tree stood out and glowed with visible energy. The
feeling of joy was deep and quiet and indisturbable. This
lasted for many hours, until I went to bed, about midnight....
Thank you for sharing your story of the epiphany, and for
your interest in helping others Awaken into Awareness.
Even though we only met once [over 4 years ago], you are
still so vivid in my mind....Your spirit flows.
The delightful thing about the Insight Mentoring process
is that I get to ask all the questions Iíve reflected on,
pondered over and wondered about in my own unsatisfactory
solitary pursuit. In working with Metta, Iím assured of a
thoughtful, nonjudgmental reply, based upon her own
understanding and personal awareness.
Metta is incredibly generous and patient with my struggle
to explore and comprehend the vastness and simplicity of
the "awakening" process. Her thoughtful, straight-forward
responses are communicated clearly from the heart and lift
me to higher levels of understanding each time we meet.
Our attention in these sessions is so focused within the
present moment that we exist for a time almost as two people
dancing heart to heart.
Our discussions center on what it means to be "enlightened"
or "aware," and how to make sense of the struggle we see
and experience in the physical world. These discussions
stay with me as I move into my week, centering me and
transforming my personal interactions. Iím finding great
joy in experiencing life and relationships on a deeper,
more meaningful level as a result of sharing the Insight
Mentoring process with Metta. J. H.
The Insight Mentoring process is very powerful for me
and difficult to really explain. In this process I find a
sense of peace, a sense of wholeness, and contentment.
The dialogues help me to focus on the moment, and to
maintain complete awareness of the Now. Our topics of
discussion are based on what each individual brings, and
they range from personal issues to spiritual discussions
and concerns. Metta is a truly rare individual who offers
warmth and an ability to stay with the individual and
connect at a deeper level.
From the Insight Mentoring process I have gained a deeper
awareness of myself, and through our dialogues I am able
to gain a clearer perspective on my life. It really is
so simple! Somehow we keep making things so difficult
in our lives. I see Metta as a wonderful guide who is
showing me how simple things can be if we just focus on
where are -- in this moment. The group is so wonderful
because you can share this marvelous experience with
others, while gaining and giving insight from and to
other people. The energy in the room is electric and
positive. It is about being who you are, and being happy.
Your "electronic satsang" assists all of us in recognizing
the background of Awareness and Clear Seeing.
Thank you for sharing your experience with the whole
world through internet. You're a real jewel!!! I was
overjoyed when I read your answer to my questions
on the "dark night of the soul" and the process of
"awakening," and I'm glad you responded so fast.
I would like to receive your Insight Mentoring Letters.
Please tell me how this can be done.
With deep appreciation,
Thanks for your warm welcome! And, thank you for your
Awakening site and ezine. Reading your words is like
having fresh air filter into the soul! L. E.
When you talk of everything being completely perfect right
now in the present moment, I am flooded with peace and
light. I know the truth of that in my deepest being, but keep
forgetting it. Your words took me there in the immediacy
of the experience. Also your very ordinary non-spiritual
language is so helpful! G.W.
Your comments are a feast! Very beneficial.
Your words evoke a primal memory that helps me
know what is really important in life.
Your generous sharing of wisdom is admirable.
Metta is a dear friend, whose passion is awakening.
Her offerings are rich and deep insights. I believe that
by passing the word about her work to those who might
appreciate it, we may really expand Metta's network of
influence and connectedness, which is my wish for her.
She is an incredible gift to the world.
The meaning of "metta" is "loving kindness"
You are that. E. T.
