Today, I awoke in the early hours of the morning. When this happens my thoughts usually turn to the intentions of the Loving Kindness meditation, the desire to bring compassion not only to myself but also to all beings.
As events have moved on in our nation and in the global community, my awareness is disturbed by the ever increasing violence in thought, word and deed that is always present in our lives. Violence seems to be our daily companion.
Where ever we are, we have the potential to be instruments of nonviolence in thought, word and action for ourselves and others. We can unite in an effort to send wellsprings of loving kindness from our hearts to all beings.
May all being be safe, be happy, be healthy, live with ease of well-being and be nonviolent in thought, word and action. Compassion cannot wait. Let’s send it now!
