Our current MSC group gathered yesterday for group session # 3. The topic of loving -kindness was the focus of our time together. What a powerful group it was! According to the Dalai Lama, loving-kindness is “ the wish that all sentient beings may be happy.” How different this intention is from how most of us push and force ourselves to grab at happiness wherever we go. As we all know, this is a useless pursuit, the more we grab, the less we get. Can you imagine how different your life could be if you gently offered an intention for happiness, for peace, for goodwill? Can you soften the grasp you have on life and on the imagined way life should be? See if your heart can open today to the possibility of receiving more goodness than you could ever envision.
Here are some loving-kindness phrases to try out:
May I be happy.
May I be peaceful
May I be healthy
May I live with ease
