We are all a part of the fabric of life… each and every one of us. Those we love. Those who challenge us. Those we admire. Those we fear. Those who shape us. At times this human experience can seem merciless and at times it can seem blessed beyond belief; this is the warp and weft that creates the fabric of our existence.
As we offer ourselves loving kindness, we create a wellspring of goodness that is readily available for ourselves, for others, and for all sentient beings. As we offer ourselves loving kindness, we create; it could have simply been left at that. As we criticize and harm ourselves or another, we destroy. Loving kindness meditations generate a positivity that reverberates across time and space and fortifies our interweaving experiences so that we may all participate in ways that support the greater good.
