Discourse on Love

“He or she who wants to attain peace
should practice being upright, humble, and capable of using loving speech.
He or she will know how to live simply and happily, with senses calmed,
without being covetous and carried away by the emotions of the majority.

Let him or her not do anything that will be disapproved of by the wise ones.

“(And this is what he or she contemplates):

“May everyone be happy and safe, and may their hearts be filled with joy.

“May all living beings live in Security and in Peace – beings who are frail or strong, tall or short, big or small,
visible or not visible, near or far away, already born or yet to be born. May all of them dwell in perfect tranquillity.

“Let no one do harm to anyone. Let no one put the life of anyone in danger.
Let no one, out of anger or ill will, wish anyone any harm.

“Just as a mother loves and protects her only child at the risk of her own life, we should cultivate Boundless Love
to offer to all living beings in the entire cosmos.

We should let our boundless love pervade the whole universe, above, below and across.

Our love will know no obstacles, our heart will be absolutely free from hatred and enmity.

Whether standing or walking, sitting or lying, as long as we are awake,
we should maintain this mindfulness of love in our own heart.

This is the noblest way of living.

“Free from wrong views, greed and sensual desires, living in beauty and realising Perfect Understanding,
those who practise Boundless Love will certainly transcend Birth and Death."

Metta Sutta, Suttanipata

Do not lose yourself in the past; do not lose yourself in the future; do not get caught in your anger, worries, or fears. Come back to the present moment, and touch life deeply. This is mindfulness.
