METTA MEDITATION

May I be peaceful, happy and light in body and spirit.
May I be safe and free from injury.
May I be free from anger, afflictions, fear and anxiety.

May I learn to look at myself with the eyes of understanding and love.
May I be able to recognize and touch the seeds of joy and happiness in myself.
May I learn to identify and see the sources of anger, craving and delusion in myself.

May I know how to nourish the seeds of joy in myself everyday.
May I be able to live fresh, solid and free.
May I be free from attachment and aversion, but not be indifferent.

“Begin practicing this love meditation on yourself. Until you are able to take care of yourself, you can’t be of much help of others – first on someone you like, then on someone neutral to you, then on someone you love, and finally on someone the mere thought of whom makes you suffer.”
