Are you knew to meditation?  Have you always wanted to practice but weren’t sure how to or where to start?

Check out the category of New to Meditation? series of posts that will be sprinkled, with love, throughout this blog.

Unlike other series that I’ve written, these will not be a week long or a trio of articles but a post that will show up to remind you and of course, a category for you to go back to time and time again as you need a refresher, a boost, etc.

I hope that these important teachings will bring you peace, safety, joy, and deep compassion.  May they be a bell of mindfulness that reminds you to come home to your practice and to attend to the greater sangha.

Lovingkindness meditation allows us to use our own pain and the pain of others as a vehicle for connection

rather than isolation.  Maybe when people are acting unskillfully we can look beyond

their actions and recognize that they’re suffering, and that they,

too want to be happy.”

“May I be safe (or May I be free from danger)

May I be happy

May I be healthy

May I live with ease

May daily life not be a struggle

“The ‘May I’ is not meant to be begging or beseeching but is said in the spirit of generously blessing

ourselves and others: May I be happy.  May you be happy.”

~~  Sharon Salzberg, Happiness
