We Rise Together – A Meditation of Love for the World
Today’s meditation of love will give you the space to hope. To feel deeply connected to others and our world as a whole. To feel inspired to make things better in your own special way. And, to collectively send love out into the world.
The pain and suffering and negativity in the world around us can be overwhelming.
It’s easy to feel hopeless, helpless and even deeply depressed by what we see.
So the intention of today’s meditation is to give you the space to hope. To feel deeply connected to others and our world as a whole. To feel inspired to make things better in your own special way. And, to collectively send love out into the world.
We all rise together.
So Let’s Begin…
WE RISE TOGETHER – A MEDITATION OF LOVE FOR THE WORLD MEDITATION SCRIPT
Allow yourself to get into a comfortable position – sitting or lying down.
Close your eyes and invite yourself to be the observer.
The observer of your breath.
In and out.
Expanding and contracting.
Receiving and releasing.
The observer of your thoughts.
Allowing them to drift away as soon as they pop up,
Freeing yourself from their desire to stay and play.
Letting them go.
One by one.
Be the observer of your body,
Recognizing if there are any places of discomfort or pain,
And inviting it to leave your body on your outbreath.
Mother Teresa said, I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the water that creates many ripples.
That stone is love.
And right now, I want you to imagine yourself holding that stone.
Look at it in your hand.
See it’s shape and color.
Feel its texture.
Hold it to your heart, and imagine it being infused with your love.
Your deep desire for more kindness, more compassion, more honesty, more connectivity, more beauty.
Allow the images of pain and suffering and negativity that are so pervasive, evolve into images of love, healing and joy.
Be here with these images for a bit, and allow them the space to expand.
Now bring your attention onto your stone again.
This time, noticing that it shines brightly in your hands.
You stare out onto the water in front of you,
Bring your arm back,
And extend your arm with a powerful force, throwing the stone of love across the smooth water in front of you.
The stone jumps on the water, each time, casting ripples out,
And eventually, dropping heavily, leaving a wake of many, beautiful ripples.
You feel yourself smile, knowing your love is being cast out into the world.
And then something catches your attention.
You see more ripples in the water.
You see the smooth water being disrupted by all kinds of different stones, and ripples small and large painting the water with their love.
And they each glow. They each shine brightly.
And soon, the water in front of you illuminates with deep loving energy that you imagine spreading like a healing salve all across the world.
You look around and see one person after another, looking upon the water, their hands still vibrating from the stone they just released.
We’re all here.
Seeing each other.
Connecting with each other.
Giving our love out onto the world together,
So that love can heal, change and evolve us all.
Be here in this moment.
Feel the warmth of the massive light in front of you,
Feel the connection with everyone around you.
Take a deep breath in and hear Mother Teresa whispering, you can do what I cannot do. I can do what you cannot do. Together, we can do great things.
We rise together.
