Spreading Loving Kindness to All Beings

Spreading loving kindness to all beings is something we are all capable of doing without much effort. This is especially effortless when we, ourselves feel the loving kindness coming from within. A simple smile can make someone’s day. A helping hand can brighten someone’s life. There are many ways to do this.

Mother Teresa says,

Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your own home. Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next door neighbor . . . Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting.

Take, for example, how this lovely child spoke about the superhero he wanted to be and why. Be warned that your heart may open unexpectedly as you watch him be the superhero he spoke about.

Speaking of loving kindness, here are the words to a song by Ashana. This in number one on my current hit parade. I listen to it in the car and when I get treatments.

Loving kindness
For all beings
From the ONE beyond the stars.
From the darkness
Into the light
We behold the gift of peace.

My daily meditation practice includes of a period of loving kindness meditation. I start with showering the loving kindness blessings found here on myself. Then I shower similar loving kindness blessings on my wife, children, and their significant others. Next, I shower loving kindness blessings on people I know to be suffering in one way or another. Most of the time I include people who come to mind as needing a little loving kindness today.

How do you practice loving kindness in your daily life? Are you able to generate the feeling of loving kindness in yourself? Please share.
