Meditation Poem Series: #60

It’s always a challenge to post anything while I have my daughter for a full weekend. My heart is always over filled with gratitude when I get to spend time with her. I did metta meditation as she napped in car.

Meditation Poem Series: #46

This is a day late, yesterday was a full day. My daughter and I were visiting up in Falls Church, and woke up to home made pancakes. We went to an Anglican church, then lunch…drive home.

It might be slightly cheating, but I did metta meditation while I drove and while my daughter napped in the car. I started with myself, then her, other people on the road, and then people as they popped up into my heart and mind. If you don’t know what metta (loving-kindess meditaion) is, I’d be happy to go more in depth either through a post or a reply to a comment.

healthy,and free
from suffering

Meditation Poem Series: #23

I did 15 minutes of metta meditation while waiting for my car to be serviced at a car dealership. It was definitely hard to focus, but I tried to return to my breath and phrases. Metta (loving-kindness) always starts with myself and then expands out to hopefully all living beings: “May you be happy. May you be healthy. May you be free from suffering. May you be at peace.” I use those phrases, because they work for me. Sometimes I just use the first three, because for some reason my mind goes blank on the 4th phrase. Much metta to all of you.
