THE JOY OF GIVING & RECEIVING

may the joy of offering always prevail
supported by the abundance of the Universe
throughout all times, in the ten directions…

may the joy of receiving always prevail
supported by the truth of the universe
throughout all times, in the ten directions…

as simple as the in breath
and the release of the out breath

.

.

.

may all beings be safe

may all beings be healthy

may all beings be happy

may all beings be at ease

.

I attended the Spirit Rock People of Color Retreat, summer of 2008, and experienced the metta praktis during that week of silence and community. Such a simple, yet transformative praktis this commitment to cultivating loving kindness and to send it out, to offer it to those we know and love, those who are “unknown or neutral” to us, and to those with whom we have difficulty. as simple as the awareness of breath praktis, this in breath, this out breath. lovin’ it all, lovin’ it all…

DEAR DHARMA,

my great fortune to have encountered you in this lifetime…

i make aspirational prayers to always be in contact with Life

in this way…

i make aspirational prayers to be able to take refuge in this lifetime and in future lifetimes…

i make aspirational prayers to have the wakeful to create favorable conditions for me to continue praktising this path of love and understanding.

…and if any benefit may be generated from this, may it be sent forth as a humble offering to my ancestry, family, community & society.

May all beings finds happiness and the causes of happiness…

May all beings be free…
