Meditating with loving kindness on our inter-connectedness

Posted on Monday, March 13th, 2017 at 3:39 pm

I have just discovered a great new mantra/prayer to learn and use to remind me of the inter-connectedness of all forms of phenomena, animate and inanimate. This mantra combines reflection on interbeingness and loving kindness and I am sharing it courtesy of Charles Suhor and Lions Roar, March 8, 2017.

Connectedness Meditation

I am open to my connectedness with all things.

I am connected with my body and spirit.
May I be at peace.

I am connected with the most beloved in my life.
May we be at peace.

I am connected with friends and colleagues.
May we be at peace.

I am connected with those I see casually and in passing.
May we be at peace.

I am connected with those who have angered me and I have angered.
May we be at peace.

I am connected with all humanity, dead and living and unborn.
May we be at peace.

I am connected with visible animals in the world.
May we be at peace.

I am connected with animal life microscopic and unseen, teeming in the natural world.
May we be at peace.

I am connected with animal life, dead, living, and unborn.
May we be at peace.

I am connected with living plants of the world.
May we be at peace.

I am connected with plant life microscopic and unseen, teeming in the natural world.
May we be at peace.

I am connected with all plant life, dead and living and unborn.
I am connected with all inanimate things, from the clothing closest to my body to the stars in farthest galaxies.
May we be at peace.

I am connected with unknown forms of matter and life and spirit.
May we be at peace.

I accept my connections with all things, and I am open to oneness with All.

    Dear Jacqui,
    thank you. Here I was suddenly reminded of a teaching about patience (Ksanti) by Ven. Namgyal Rinpoche in ''The Path of Victory'', p35. '' It is simply knowing that conditioning has formed patterns which perpetuate themselves, and to free oneself, it is necessary for the patterns to be recognised and patiently dropped.''

    So - I am (wish to be) connected to the patterns of conditioning which manifest in life.
    May I be at peace.
