21-Day Meditation Challenge – Day Nine: Metta Prayer

21-Day Meditation Challenge – Day Nine: Metta Prayer

Today’s meditation is inspired by Jack Kornfield, a Buddhist teacher and author. On the inside cover of his book, The Art of Forgiveness, Lovingkindness, and Peace, he writes:

May I and all beings

Be filled with Lovingkindness.

May I and all beings

Be safe from inner and outer dangers.

May I and all beings

Be well in body and mind.

May I and all beings

Be happy and free.

Use these few sentences to start your meditation today. Repeat them several times slowly to yourself or say them out loud.

You can also explore other meditations on his website, Jackkornfield.com.
