Just a short post to share the gift of metta, which means loving kindness.

This beautiful meditation cultivates loving kindness for ourselves, our loved ones, those who we struggle to love, and all living beings. Do it today, do it every day… Namaste.

There are many versions of the meditation. This is from 5809Yoga.com

This prayer traditionally is repeated four times:

• First to oneself
• Then to someone it is so easy to love
• Next to someone who needs a little more love
• Lastly, to all beings everywhere

Metta Meditation

Say first to yourself:
May I feel protected and safe.
May my heart remain open.
May I awaken to the light of my true nature.
May I be healed, and be a source of healing for the world.
Thinking of someone it is so easy to love.
Draw this person close to your heart & your mind and send them metta:

May you feel protected and safe.
May your heart remain open.
May you awaken to the light of your true nature.
May you be healed, and be a source of healing for the world.
Next, thinking of someone who needs a little more love.
Draw this person close to your heart & your mind. Send this person metta:
May you feel protected and safe.
May your heart remain open.
May you awaken to the light of your true nature.
May you be healed, and be a source of healing for the world.
Lastly, to all beings everywhere:
May we feel protected and safe.
May our hearts remain open.
May we awaken to the light of our true nature.
May we be healed, and be a source of healing for the world.

Wishing you a joyous Christmas, Hanukkah, Winter Solstice or whatever you observe!
