Love is Kind Meditation

Love is Kind Meditation

One of the most effective and wonderful ways to heal many of our problems–whether they be relationship problems, health problems, or financial problems–is to meditate on and contemplate Love.

Find out how to send the kindness of Love to people in your life, to places that are troubled on the Earth, or to any area of your body that feels distress. Access the soothing, healing power of Love:

Decide to dedicate 15-20 minutes to thinking about, contemplating, and meditating on Love. Go somewhere where you can be alone and quiet and then just relax for a few moments. Close your eyes and then turn over some of the following ideas in your mind. For example, what is Love, what does Love mean, what does Love do, how does Love feel, where does Love come from, what does Love look like, how does Love act, why is there Love?

Try reading and pondering the thoughts of great masters on Love: their words and descriptions are wonderful signposts that can trigger the ever-deepening realization of the miracle of Love in each of us. For instance 1 Corinthians, chapter 13, that begins “Love suffereth long and is kind,” or the words of the Dalai Lama on compassion, or any other text that helps you to profoundly connect to the energy field of Love.

Once you get a strong sense of Love in your heart and can feel its magic working in and through you, you can end your meditation by sending this energy out like healing balm in to the various areas of your life. For example, let the healing balm of Love descend and caress your loved one and closest relationships. See how this divine energy softens, soothes, and heals all troubles and banishes all dismay. Send Love to your friends, to your workplace, to your distant relatives, to your business associates, and to any troubled spots on Earth. Each time you send this energy out to someone, you will feel how the miracle of Love is a softening agent, immediately melting hardness, anger, criticism, and despair. Always this Love energy brings a feeling of kindness to every situation and a renewed sense of hope. This is because Love is kind.

Allow yourself once again to contemplate what Love is kind means and feels like in all the areas of your life. There is no more effective healing than this, even in terms of your physical body. Send the kindness of Love to any area in your body where there is distress or pain and let the kindness of Love do its healing work in you. If you contemplate the depths and wonders of Love on a regular basis, there will be no end to the wonders you will experience. Because indeed Love is kind. This is the blessing of Love.
