Metta Sutta
lyrics/chant

This is what should be done
By one who is skilled in goodness,
And who knows the path of peace:
Let them be able and upright,
Straightforward and gentle in speech.
Humble and not conceited

Contented and easily satisfied.
Unburdened with duties and frugal in their ways.
Peaceful and calm, and wise and skillful,
Not proud and demanding in nature.

Let them not do the slightest thing
That the wise would later reprove.
Wishing: In gladness and in safety,
May all beings be at ease.

Whatever living beings there may be;
Whether they are weak or strong, omitting none,
The great or the mighty, medium, short or small, The seen and the unseen,
Those living near and far away,
Those born and to-be-born,
May all beings be at ease!

Let none deceive another,
Or despise any being in any state.
Let none through anger or ill-will
Wish harm upon another.

Even as a mother protects with her life
Her child, her only child,
So with a boundless heart
Should one cherish all living beings:

Radiating kindness over the entire world
Spreading upwards to the skies,
And downwards to the depths;
Outwards and unbounded,
Freed from hatred and ill-will.

Whether standing or walking, seated or lying down
Free from drowsiness,
One should sustain this recollection
This is said to be the sublime abiding.

By not holding to fixed views,
The pure-hearted one, having clarity of vision,
Being freed from all sense desires,
Is not born again into this world.

(music) Loving Kindness - Metta Sutta (chanting, very Beautiful) [2:59] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kb-RAzwS0Qk

Loving-Kindness Meditation

The original name of this practice is metta bhavana, which comes from the Pali language.
Metta means ‘love’ (in a non-romantic sense), friendliness, or kindness: hence ‘loving-kindness’ for short.
It is an emotion, something you feel in your heart.
Bhavana means development or cultivation.
The commonest form of the practice is in five stages, each of which should last about five minutes for a beginner.

* In the first stage, you feel metta for yourself.
You start by becoming aware of yourself, and focusing on feelings of peace, calm, and tranquillity.
Then you let these grow in to feelings of strength and confidence, and then develop into love within your heart.
You can use an image, like golden light flooding your body, or a phrase such as ‘may I be well and happy’, which you can repeat to yourself.
These are ways of stimulating the feeling of metta for yourself.

* In the second stage think of a good friend.
Bring them to mind as vividly as you can, and think of their good qualities.
Feel your connection with your friend, and your liking for them, and encourage these to grow by repeating ‘may they be well; may they be happy’ quietly to yourself.
You can also use an image, such as shining light from your heart into theirs.
You can use these techniques — a phrase or an image — in the next two stages as well.

Then think of someone you do not particularly like or dislike.
Your feelings are ‘neutral’.
This may be someone you do not know well but see around.
You reflect on their humanity, and include them in your feelings of metta.

Then think of someone you actually dislike —
an “enemy”, traditionally— someone you are having difficulty with.
Trying not to get caught up in any feelings of hatred,
think of them positively and send your metta to them as well.


In the final stage, first of all you think of all four people together — yourself, the friend, the neutral person, and the enemy.

Then extend your feelings further — to everyone around you, to everyone in your neighbourhood; in your town, your country, and so on throughout the world.

Have a sense of waves of loving-kindness spreading from your heart to everyone, to all beings everywhere.
Then gradually relax out of meditation, and bring the practice to an end.

First time I ever heard of this person.
This whole vid with Oprah is excellent!

Some of the topics--
The soul, the personality, the frightened part of personality; internal/external Power.

Living authentically.

Love and Fear .... Choose Love!

lyrics

LOVE is but a song we sing,
FEAR's the way we die .......

You can make the mountains
ring, or make the angels cry
Though the bird is on the wing
and you may not know why

C'mon people now,
smile on your brother
Ev'rybody get together, try to
love one another right now

Some may come and some
may go, we will surely pass
When the one that left us here
returns for us at last ---
We are but a moments sunlight
fading in the grass

C'mon people now,
smile on your brother
Ev'rybody get together, try to
love one another right now

C'mon people now,
smile on your brother
Ev'rybody get together, try to
love one another right now

If you hear the song I sing,
you will understand (Listen !)
You hold the key to love and
fear all in your trembling hand
Just one key unlocks them both,
it's there at your command

C'mon people now,
smile on your brother
Ev'rybody get together, try to
love one another right now

C'mon people now,
smile on your brother
Ev'rybody get together, try to
love one another right now
(I said !)

C'mon people now,
smile on your brother
Ev'rybody get together, try to
love one another right now .....

I saw a lady at the bus stop who looks just like Dionne Warwick. I approached her and asked if she had ever been told that before...

I 'think' she responded that she had, and seemed pleased at the reference? .. (Was an elderly Spanish lady, didn't speak English too well, but I think she understood?)

Soooooooooo SULKY???!!!! ...
When's your Birthday, my Saggi??? ...........

I'm not giving you an exact date. But I will have my birthday in late November, or early December!

Jesus, my Neptune energy is showing! I like to be a little mysterious. It's not personal, I like to keep my birthdate secret on the internet.

I have, or will, turn 29 years old!

I don't hand out my birthday on the internet to anyone. It's not personal. It's just an internet rule I made up for myself.

It's somewhere in late November, or early December. Sounds like my Neptune is showing! I like to keep mysterious on the internet.

I'm have, or will turn 29 years old!

Oy! My Saturn Return is coming!
