I’ve added a new facet to my metta meditations.

People around me make decisions I disagree with.  I’m learning not to judge their decisions.  Still, I often wish they’d choose better, or in some cases I wish that they’d know what to do in difficult situations.

I still wish them to be happy, and safe and protected from harm, and healthy, and to live with ease.  Now I add an innovation of my own. At the end, I ask that they be wise.

Who knows if my metta meditation has any effect on them?  I do know that it helps me be more tolerant of their choices, which certainly has an effect on me.

If you practice metta meditation, please give this a try and let me know if it helps you.
