For their Spirit and Everyone that Loved them

We’ve had two deaths in our family this last year, and I’d like to share a compassion practice that can help us remember and be supportive:

I practice compassion for the spirit of Barb and Andrew, and everyone that loved them

With compassion, I free us from suffering
With compassion, I help us find peace and feel safe in this world
With compassion, I create contentment in our lives
With compassion, I inspire us to flourish

With patience and good humour, I welcome the imperfections of the spirit of Barb and Andrew, and everyone that loves them
With sympathy, I feel for our suffering
With empathy, I mind what we’re feeling and try to understand why

For the spirit of Barb and Andrew, and everyone that loves them, I seek wisdom
I nurture a broad perspective of us
I foster gratefulness for us
And I acknowledge that suffering and difficulties are part of our lives

Best to you all🙂
