May I be filled with love and kindness.
May I be safe and protected.
May I love and be loved.
May I be happy and contented.
May I be healthy and strong.
May my life unfold with ease.
This is a Buddhist loving-kindness meditation. When we tune into our desire to care for ourselves, and intend good things for ourselves, this ripples outward to others.
I feel moved to share this at this time of year, when I am celebrating Christmas with my friends and family. No matter your spiritual path or persuasion, I wish you all the Peace of the Season, and the Joy and Innocence of the Newborn Child.
