Loving Kindness Series Day 21

Good Morning! I’m not sure how most of you are feeling about our deep dive into loving kindness practices. Hopefully, you are feeling the positive impact in your life. Beginning tomorrow, I will ask you to choose the specific loving kindness practice that resonated with you the most and to practice that exact practice each day for 7 days. I will send prompts and I will resend the links to the practices we have done, but you may wish to look back over them today if you have time. Then Monday, you will begin intentional, self-disciplined personal practice.

Today’s practice is to sit upright and to use whatever thoughts or images coax you into feeling warmth, and love. Breathe deeply for a few breaths. Allow the feelings to become expansive. Then read the following quote

“If you are motivated by loving kindness and compassion, there are many ways to bring happiness to others right now, starting with kind speech.” Thich Nhat Hanh

Today, set an intention to carry your loving kindness practice to others in your speech. Be mindful to extend compassion, love and kindness if a person is present or you are just speaking to someone else about that person. If you become aware of judgment, do your best to breathe and connect with compassion.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Michele
