Loving Kindness Series Day 7

Good Morning. Today will be a whole week of loving-kindess. Have you noticed anything about yourself? Are you more patient? More gentle? For today’s loving kindness practice, we will begin with a few deep breaths in and out. Begin by thinking about something that makes you smile, a person you love or that loves or loved you…any happy thought or memory. Continue to breathe in and out slowly as you read the following phrases.

May I be safe
May I be happy
May I be free
May I be peaceful
May I awaken to the light of my inner kindness

Now, think of a person you feel love for and repeat…

May you be safe
May you be happy
May you be free
May you be peaceful
May you awaken to the light of your inner kindness

Now think of someone you have seen, but you do not actually know-someone you feel neutral about and repeat…

May you be safe
May you be happy
May you be free
May you be peaceful
May you awaken to the light of your inner kindness

Now, focus on a person you disagree with or who you find annoying-someone who causes you frustration or emotional distress. Think of them and repeat…

May you be safe
May you be happy
May you be free
May you be peaceful
May you awaken to the light of your inner kindness

Now, feeling the warmth extend to all people and creatures, repeat…

May all beings be safe
May all beings be happy
May all beings be free
May all beings be peaceful
May all beings awaken to the light of their inner kindness

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
