Maintain this Noble Wish of Sympathy:

May I be happy, may I sustain my happiness by living without trace of enmity.
May all beings be happy and successful: May they be full of joy, all beings
that breathe and have life, whether they are weak or strong, tiny or huge,
visible or invisible, near or far away, born or to be born, let all beings enjoy
safety, content ease and a peaceful serene bliss!
Let no one deceive another, let no one be harsh in speech, let no one by anger
or hatred wish bad for his neighbour. Even as a mother, at the risk of her life,
guards and protects her only child, so with a boundless heart of compassion,
I venerate all living beings by permeating this entire universe with sympathy,
above, beneath and all around, without limit, immeasurable and truly endless!
In this very fine way I cultivate an infinite goodwill toward this whole world.
Standing or walking, sitting or lying down, during all my waking hours I will
always treasure and dwell in this goodwill, knowing that this way of caring
is the most Noble in this entire universe!
Thus shall I, by stilling pointless discussions and controversies, and by acting
blamelessly, be gifted with tranquillity and true insight into what is profound.
Thus shall I subdue the urge for sense-pleasure, and never again know rebirth.
May this also inspire and thereby cause all other sentient beings to fulfil the
conditions leading swiftly to Nibbāna, which is the only lasting happiness!
May all sentient beings be thus liberated & fully released from all suffering.
May all sentient beings thus escape the dangers of ageing, disease, & death.
Friendliness is thus the Greatest! Yeah... :-)

More on this blazing Friendliness (Mettā):

Creating a Future Harmony: So that we may sleep with our doors open,
among hanging gardens and dance with the children in our arms! :-)

Symbiotic Sympathy!
Have a nice & noble day!
Friendship is the Greatest! Bhikkhu Samāhita _/\_ ]
