Somewhere in the world, at all times, someone is praying for you.
Somewhere in the world, at all times, someone is praying for peace.
Somewhere in the world, at all times, someone is praying for everyone.
There can be a sense of comfort in knowing this. Perhaps, we too, can become a part of the chain and practice Metta and/or prayers for peace and kindness and a healthy world and planet every single day.
The above can be tweaked if the words don’t quite fit you. To practice, we usually repeat the phrases with a different focus each time. We start with ourselves, because all Goodness begins with us. Then we reach beyond ourselves to offer to others what we would like for ourselves. Then we realize that all beings want and need the same. It connects us. It is harder to be divided when we focus daily on a reminder that our basic wants…are the same.
If you choose Metta, it usually begins something like this:
May I, then May you (someone near and dear), May you (someone you don't know well; maybe someone you see daily at the corner store or in the corner office), May you (someone we dislike or outright despise), May we (connecting us all together as one), and finishes with May All Beings....
