Real Happiness Week Four: Day 26: Lovingkindness Toward All Beings

In our practice today, we include all creatures great and small and truly all beings. We offer lovingkindness to all beings in various categories, including enlightened beings and unenlightened beings. As Sharon says, “Enlightened beings are those who are good hearted, committed to wisdom, to love, to compassion. Unenlightened beings are those who live in ignorance. So, all enlightened beings and all unenlightened beings.”

As we continue we can feel the power of our practice. I know for me as I include all beings everywhere without distinction, we feel a larger capacity for love within me. Yes, distraction happens, but it is simply returning to the intention and the phrases that all be safe, happy, well, peaceful and at ease.

At times I close my classes with:

May all beings by happy

May all beings be well

May all beings be safe

May all beings be peaceful and at ease.

Let me know how this week goes for you with each practice that I post. You can join me in my mindfulness classes or if you would you like personal meditation instruction, I am happy to assist you through these practices. Contact me.

 

Recommended reading for Week Three of the Challenge is pages 152 – 160 and pages 177 – 183 in the second edition of the book, “Real Happiness”.
