Loving-Kindness is a meditation practice taught by the Buddha 2500 years ago to develop the habit of self-less love. Often our Western form of love has a hidden agenda, "What's in it for me? If I love you, then you must....(fill in the blank)." Loving-kindness promotes friendliness, compassion, joy and equanimity. It's easy to practice with people you already love and respect, the challenge arises when it's someone that you feel hostile or angry towards. It's even encouraged to practice this towards oneself.
There are plenty of ways to get information on lovingkindness. What would we do without google? There are books, tapes, and websites full of knowledge about this practice. What I like about it is that it is something for every day that promotes peace of mind and well-being. Anyone can practice it, you don't have to be a Buddhist to try.
What I really want for our world is more peace and self-less love.
May you be free from danger.
May you have mental happiness.
May you have physical happiness.
May you have ease of well-being.
Hope you have a Happy Valentine's Day every day!
