Kindness Begins With Being Kind to Yourself

my-religion-is-kindness

Kindness begins with being kind to yourself.

For those of us that my struggle with an unkind mind, here is a daily metta (loving kindness practice) to start your day.

Find a comfortable and quiet place to sit. Take a minute to settle in and begin to notice your breath. Breathing in, I am aware that I am breathing in.  Breathing out, I am aware that I am breathing out.

Repeat the following phrases to yourself.

May I be filled with lovingkindness.

May I be safe from inner and outer dangers.

May I be well in body and mind.

May I be at ease and happy.

Metta by Jack Kornfield
