Ayya Khema says...
"One method may suit one person better than another. For instance, it may be very helpful to use the loving-kindness meditation as a way of getting concentrated. In this meditation, if we do it well, a strong feeling arises, usually in the center of the chest. This is commonly a very pleasant physical feeling of warmth. Sometimes it is a feeling of both warmth and joy. As soon as it arises, rather than continuing with the loving-kindness meditation we should put our full attention on the feeling itself. The stronger sensation will be the physical one, so that is where our attention should go first."
--from p. 46 of "Who Is My Self?" by Ven. Ayya Khema
