Day of Rest

Metta Prayer (original version here)

May we be well, happy and safe.
May we be free from suffering and at ease with pain.
May we live in peace and harmony with all beings.
May we live with a heart and mind that is always in balance.
May we accept with understanding and wisdom the events in life and the world.
May we forgive others and ourselves for the inevitable harms we cause each other.
May we have the patience, courage, understanding, and determination to overcome the inevitable problems in life.
May we experience and manifest loving kindness, compassion, joy and equanimity.

On this day of rest, dear reader, and with my whole heart, I am wishing these things for all of us.

    I may have had the worst day of my life today, and like many folks, I’ve had a lot of legitimately bad days, I think today takes the cake….and I needed, so needed, to read this: To apply it for myself and to remember that I can join you in wishing it for others too.
