Metta Tags

Buddha with the Elephant Nalagiri

Buddha with the Elephant Nalagiri

I have been quietly sending metta, or lovingkindness meditation, to two people who have really caused havoc in my life.

I am not getting caught up in it. But, everyday, 20 times a day, I purposefully stop and think of these persons. I say their names to myself. Without any judgment or attachment, I imagine their faces and send them love, empathy, and compassion.

They’re sending me hate and I am sending back love.

Why?

Because it feels good and their shit feels bad.

I love you my enemy. I send peace to you my haters. I adore you those who don’t understand and never will.

Watch Out! I am sending you sweet juice deep from my heart.

Have you ever had to let go of negative energy? Have you ever sent metta to someone in your life? I’d love to hear from you.

  2. Oh, I love this idea. I tried metta meditation once. I have had some negative energy haunting me for a few years. I’ve worked on letting it go, but now and then it creeps back. I will try this!

  3. you never cease to amaze and inspire me.
    I would say that, yes, I have learned this lesson in my life too, but haven’t consciously practiced it or articulated it the way you have.
    I find this extremely moving and uplifting.
    And I can’t imagine anyone harboring negative feelings for you.

  4. Oh, this sounds brilliant. I will have to learn more about it.

    I have 2 brothers who have not spoken to me in 7 years nor even met any of my children. I have such sadness in my heart because of this but perhaps sending them my love will help to heal my hurt. And maybe they will learn to heal and to forgive also?

    And I send much love to you too, Sweet and Gentle Zoie.

    • Thank you, Patti, and I’m sending that love to you, too. It is a lovely path toward freedom from holding onto all of those complex feelings. I hope you are able to find some healing.

  5. I have done the same with a few people in my life. It is amazing isn’t it? The release. It is like all that pent up ick and hate just goes away, and so does the havoc they have tried to create. It is hard to remember to do this. Knee jerk reaction is often to return like for like. But it is so rewarding. ❤
