Become Positive! Thai How-To

Thai “metta” meditation operates along the lines of positive self-suggestions. In practicing this technique there is no need to force your feelings, which can make you self-conscious. Think of this meditation as a concentration exercise instead, and simply repeat the words over and over again. It is without trying that truly amazing things can happen.

Metta in action is turning negativity into positivity. Learn how, here:

Metta Meditation
May I abide in well-being,
in freedom from hostility,
in freedom from ill-will,
in freedom from anxiety,
and may I maintain well-being in myself.
May I be released from all suffering,
and may I not be parted from the good fortune I have attained.

May we abide in well-being,
in freedom from hostility,
in freedom from ill-will,
in freedom from anxiety,
and may we maintain well-being in ourselves.
May we be released from all suffering,
and may we not be parted from the good fortune we have attained.

May all beings abide in well-being,
in freedom from hostility,
in freedom from ill-will,
in freedom from anxiety,
and may they maintain well-being in themselves.
May they be released from all suffering,
and may they not be parted from the good fortune they have attained.

Thank you but no thank you! I am not very keen on Thai anything. Maybe the country and its people should apply the 'rules of meditation' to its culture and attitudes toward animal and human rights. How can I adopt a method that should bring me positivity that was originated in a country that has mostly negatives? How can I respect and accept these rules if they were originated among animal abuse, child labor, abuse toward women etc.?
No thank you.
