There is so much more that connects us than divides us. We all breathe. We all have thoughts and emotions. We all desire happiness and to be well. We all have the same organs in our body. We are all one people. In this meditation, we begin to feel this connection among us all.
I became aware of the people in my neighborhood, my town and finally, my whole state and began extending well wishes to each person, specifically breathing in empathy for everyone and breathing out kindfulness for everyone.
I then focused inward and extended well wishes to myself.
What a wonderful way to begin my day!
We are all connected. Each day, we, as individuals, can extend kindness or meanness to ourselves and to others. The choice is ours to make! I choose to extend kindness!
