Loving-Kindness Meditation

Recite this meditation either silently or aloud to cultivate feelings of goodness.

May I be happy and content.
May I be free from danger and suffering.
May I be filled with loving-kindness.

May you be happy and content.
May you be free from danger and suffering.
May you be filled with loving-kindness.

May all beings be happy and content.
May all beings be free from danger and suffering.
May all beings be filled with loving-kindness.

When you align your mind with positive thoughts, you create space for goodness to flourish. Similarly, if you choose to dwell on negative thoughts, you create a negative cloud. The thoughts and feelings you harbor internally, also have external effects on others around you. Reciting the Loving-Kindness Meditation can put you in a better mental state, and can influence how you interact with others. Ultimately, this meditation gives you the power to spread goodness to everyone.
