Loving Kindness Meditation For Everyone I, Or You, Have Ever Known

I sat down to my morning meditation with my usual mantra. Then I thought (no I know I shouldn’t have), wait, why not do a Loving Kindness Meditation, it is Christmas Day after all.

Then I thought some more (yes, I know it is becoming a habit), why not offer Loving Kindness to everyone I have ever known; good or bad, happy or sad, old or young, dark or light, friend or foe, lover or lost lover, family or friend.

Twenty-three minutes later the end bell sounded; there I was back in my childhood remembering friends from junior school, from poetry, from meditation, from football, from work, from play, from all the places I had ever lived.

It would be good I thought (yes, still occasionally thinking I’m afraid) if I could have a group photograph of everyone in this meditation. Of course, that is only possible in my mind, so for today we will have a picture of Kate, taken on our recent trip for Fish and Chips in Cleethorpes.


Merry Christmas, And A Happy New Year To Everyone I, Or You, Have Ever Known

Most days I would try to write a poem; it is a practice, as I suppose is meditation, or smiling, or watching the world go by.
