Meta Prayer

May we be filled with loving kindness.
May we be well.
May we be peaceful and at ease.
May we be happy.

Here's a variation:

May all beings be peaceful
May all beings be happy
May all beings be safe
May all beings awaken to the light
of their true nature
May all beings be free
The Mission of Converging Paths Meditation Center

To support participants in practicing the path of awakening, in
order to live more fully with kindness, compassion and appreciation.

In addition to providing an environment where people can learn and
practice meditation, there is a strong focus on cultivating clarity
and equanimity within the confusion of everyday life.

To help make this possible, the following qualities are emphasized:
Stillness: settling down in mind and body.
Perseverance: staying with all the ups and downs of our lives.
Clear Seeing: clarifying our conditioned beliefs and strategies;
deepening our intentions of being our true self.
Willingness: honest acknowledging and embracing whatever life
presents–including anger, fear, shame and confusion–as the path of
Loving-kindness: awakening to the loving-kindness and compassion that
are the true nature of our being.

We are unaffiliated with any particular religious denomination or
lineage. We welcome those from any tradition and with varied spiritual
backgrounds and diversities.

Your life is your greatest teacher.

If you want others to be more loving, choose to love first.
If you want a reconciled outer world, reconcile your own inner
world. If you are working for peace out there, create it
inside as well. If you wish to find some outer stillness, find it
within yourself. -Richard Rohr
