( We begin practicing this love meditation focusing on ourselves (“I”). Until we are able to love and take care of ourselves,we cannot be of much help to others.Next , we can practice towards others (substituting “he/she” or “they”), first with someone we love, next with someone we like, then with someone neutral to us, and finally toward someone who has made us suffer.)
May I be peaceful , happy , and light in body and spirit.
May I be safe and free form injury.
May I be free from anger, afflictions, fear, and anxiety.
May I learn to look at myself with the eyes of understanding and love.
May I be able to recognize and touch the seeds of joy and happiness in myself.
May I learn to identify and see the sources of anger,craving,and delusion in myself. May I know how to nourish the seeds of joy in myself everyday.
May i be able to live fresh,solid, and free.
May I be free from attachment and aversion, but not be indifferent.
