Day 25: Lovingkindness Toward Others

Today’s lovingkindness meditation focused on other people: someone who has shown me kindness, a friend whose life is going well, a friend who is struggling, someone who is mildly difficult and someone who has been very difficult.

I truly believe metta meditations not only allow me to share some positive energy with people who need it, but they also help me to see other people in a new light. When I focus on particular people in these meditations, I remove them from the context I usually see them in and instead see them simply as human beings who are fallible and just want to be happy. And that helps to reduce my stress caused by interactions with other people.

May all beings be happy ♡
