Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Loving kindness, even in the grocery store


--by brenross, posted Mar 15, 2016
I do 'metta', or loving kindness at the grocery store. When I stand at the checkout line I direct a silent prayer to the people around me - may you be happy, may you be well, may you be safe. It directs my restless energy to a patient, loving place, and makes grocery shopping a pleasure.
