We all are so deeply interconnected; we have no option but to love all. Be kind and do good for any one and that will be reflected. The ripples of the kind heart are the highest blessings of the Universe.— Amit Ray
Staggering Lovingkindness quotations
Nobody ever got anything from God on the grounds that he deserved it.
Haven fallen, man deserves only punishment and death. So if God answers prayer it's because God is good. From His goodness, His lovingkindness, His good-natured benevolence, God does it! That's the source of everything.
Compassion allows us to bear witness to suffering, whether it is in ourselves or others, without fear; it allows us to name injustice without hesitation, to act strongly, with all the skill at our disposal.
To reteach a thing its loveliness is the nature of metta.
Through lovingkindness, everyone & everything can flower again from within.
Even a few moments of offering lovingkindness can reconnect you with the purity of your loving heart.
We all are so deeply interconnected; we have no option but to love all.

Who pardons all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases; Who redeems your life from the pit, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion.
The practice of lovingkindness can uplift us & relieve sorrow & unhappiness.
For all of us, love can be the natural state of our own being;
naturally at peace, naturally connected, because this becomes the reflection of who we simply are.
As we work to reweave the strands of connection, we can be supported by the wisdom and lovingkindness of others.
God is a God of Lovingkindness.
Clearly recognizing what is happening inside us, and regarding what we see with an open, kind and loving heart, is what I call Radical Acceptance. If we are holding back from any part of our experience, if our heart shuts out any part of who we are and what we feel, we are fueling the fears and feelings of separation that sustain the trance of unworthiness. Radical Acceptance directly dismantles the very foundations of this trance.
I've always said that lovingkindness and compassion are inevitably woven throughout meditation practice even if the words are never used or implied, no matter what technique or method we are using.
Everyone loses touch with their aspiration, and we need the heart to return to what we really care about. All of this is based on developing greater lovingkindness and compassion.
