In order that I may understand the path to peace:
Let me be able, upright, and authentic, impeccable with my word, gentle and caring.
Let me be content and easily satisfied, without pride.
Let me cultivate a boundless, limitless, unconditional love and compassion for all beings and all things in the world.
Let my prayer be:
“May all beings be well and safe, may they be at ease.
Whatever living beings there may be, whether moving or standing still, without exception, whether large, great, middling, or small, whether tiny or substantial,
Whether seen or unseen, whether living near or far,
Born or unborn; may all beings be happy.
Let none deceive or despise another anywhere. Let none wish harm to another, in anger or in hate.”
This shot straight into me….it’s made me cry….so lovely….thank you (again) and Happy Sunday.
I’m going to re read and let it permeate.
It’s one I should print out and keep in a frame by my bed so I can remind myself of my intentions every morning.
Blessed Sunday to you as well, Tara 🙂
Some how I missed this one. It reminds me of the prayer of St. Francis, but in todays language. So lovely 🙂
The first part is my own addition to a version of the Buddhist Metta prayer (in quotes) I found online.
