Radiating Loving Kindness

Love is defined as tenderness, fondness, warmth, passion, adoration, affection and devotion. All mean a deep and enduring emotional regard, usually for another person or something greater than ourselves.

Love is giving without worrying about what we are getting. Becoming aware or mindful about radiating love is important. In order to become more loving and kind we can practice a Buddhist Meditation called “Metta”. The meditation is simple, it’s a formula expressed in four lines:

May all beings be free from harm and danger

May they be free from mental suffering

May they be free from physical suffering

May they take care of themselves happily.

In order to properly practice this meditation sit in a meditation posture, or sit in a chair with your feet flat on the floor. Keep your body somewhat relaxed and eyes closed. Repeat the lines mentally. Recite for 10 minutes then each time a little longer. 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 hour. We are programming the mind to loving kindness. The more we recite, the more and more we will feel ourselves radiating loving kindness.
