As I sat and did my meditation last night, I became aware of something very interesting.
First of all, I should explain that I start by loving myself. Then I move on to sending loving kindness to Family, friends, enemies, and then the whole World.
I thought to myself, how can I possibly send love to the whole World? That’s a lot of people!
This is where I gained an awareness of something.
I know that I have the ability to love my Family with all my heart. And I know how much I love my friends. I found I have the capacity to love my enemies and those who have harmed me. Then I think back to others I have loved throughout my life. Wow, that’s a lot of people!
So if I am truly able to love that many people, why is there a limit? Is love limited to 10 people? 100 people? No, love is limitless and boundless.
And if my heart, love and compassion can touch my Family and friends, then I absolutely can touch the whole World.
My practice has so many benefits, but I find this new realization to be extremely gratifying.
