I came across this beautiful love and happiness meditation that I felt really needed to be shared.  I am not sure who wrote this or where it came from, but I have heard someone say the Dalai Lama’s loves it.

How wonderful would you feel if you read this aloud every day to start your day!

 

My heart fills with loving kindness.

I love myself.

May I be happy, may I be well.

May I be peaceful, may I be liberated.

 

May all beings in this vicinity be happy.

May they be well

May they be peaceful.

May they be liberated.

 

May all living beings on the planet be happy.

May they be well.

May they be peaceful.

May they be liberated.

 

May my family be happy.

May they be well.

May they be peaceful.

May they be liberated.

 

May my friends be happy.

May they be well.

May they be peaceful.

May they be liberated.

 

May my enemies be happy.

May they be well.

May they be peaceful.

May they be liberated.

 

If I have hurt anyone,

Knowingly or unknowingly,

In thought or word or deed,

I ask their forgiveness.

 

If anyone has hurt me,

Knowingly or unknowingly,

In thought or word or deed,

I extend my forgiveness.

 

May all beings everywhere,

Whether near or far,

Whether known to me or unknown to me,

Be happy.

May they be well.

May they be peaceful.

May they be liberated.
