Lovingkindness & Compassion

In These Arms A Song for All Beings. By Jennifer Berezan. Metta Meditation.

"I cannot turn my eyes, I cannot count the cost 
Off all that has been broken, all that has been lost 
I cannot understand, the suffering that life brings 
War and hate and hunger 
And a million other things 

When I've done all that I can 
And I try to do my part 
Let sorrow be a doorway 
Into an open heart 

And the light on the hills is full of mercy 
The wind in the trees it comes to save me 
This silence it will never desert me 
I long to hold the whole world in these arms 

May all beings be happy 
May all beings be safe 
May all beings everywhere be free"
