The universal loving kindness meditation is a meditation exercise, which begins with closing your eyes for a few minutes and easing into the natural rhythm of your mind and body. After you are able to connect your mind and body, you must repeat four different phrases for 10 minutes. The phrases deal with wishing all individuals "well, good health, happiness and wholeness," by allowing the person meditating to become the tool that helps them achieve these goals.
I feel empowered when I am able to see another person in my mind and be present with him/her, this feeling makes me feel as one with another person. This is the opportunity that we have to connect with someone other than ourselves, especially when people are going through so many things in life. For example, I remember those mothers and fathers who may have lost a child, those husbands or wives who have lost their significant other, those children who are now orphans. I even ask for those who have no one next to them and feel alone, sad and desperate. I feel those experiences are a healing process for me and make me grow spiritually; and that is a good thing because this is the final leap to personal development.
