I sit for the benefit of all beings

When I sit in meditation – when I close my eyes and practice to come back to the sensations of my in-breath and out-breath, over and over and over again – I do so not only for my own benefit, but for yours too, my friend.

I sit for the strangers I’ll pass by today; for those I’ll have brief interactions with; for those I work beside; for the members of my household: 2-legged and 4-legged alike; for the neighbors I might wave hello to; for my family members who live states away; for my friends near and far.

Sitting in meditation every day is one of the most potent and powerful acts I can engage in, to help support me in my aspiration to be of service and benefit to as many beings as I can muster reaching.
