Universal Love Prayer

May all beings be filled with joy and peace.
May all beings everywhere,
The strong and the weak,
The great and the small,
The mean and the powerful,
The short and the long,
the subtle and the gross:

May all beings everywhere,
Seen and unseen,
Dwelling far off or nearby,
Being or waiting to become:
May all be filled with lasting joy.

Let no one deceive another,
Let no one anywhere despise another,
Let no one out of anger or resentment
Wish suffering on anyone at all.

Just as a mother with her own life
Protects her child, her only child, from harm,
So within yourself let grow
A boundless love for all creatures.

Let your love flow outward through the universe,
To its height, its depth, its broad extent,
A limitless love, without hatred or enmity.

Then as you stand or walk,
Sit or lie down,
As long as you are awake,
Strive for this with a one-pointed mind;
Your life will bring heaven to earth.

from the Metta Sutta

  1. Thank you for the wonderful wishes, just incredible warmth that radiates from your post...That's the sharing of the Light indeed.
    What is the most important, you don't talk about the love but live the love - your blog puts clear the above. Your artworks talk out of themselves - wow, Thank you!
    Let me invite you to my blogs. I want to see them as my humble addition to the Universal Love Prayer. I hope you will have a good time with my pictures. You are welcome to meditation in color - let's share the dream together. Just click on the links
