May This Body Be At Ease

Last night in my little virtual Zen community, we did something called Metta practice. ‘Metta’ is a Pali word that means something like ‘Loving Kindness’ and our meditation is comprised of four phrases:

1. May this body be at ease

2. May this heart be open

3. May this mind be boundless
