Discourse on Love
He or she who wants to attain peace should practice being upright, humble, and capable of using loving speech. He or she will know how to live simply and happily, with senses calmed, without being covetous and carried away by the emotions of the majority. Let him or her not do anything that will be disapproved by the wise ones.
May everyone be happy and safe, and may their hearts be filled with joy.
May all living beings live in Security and Peace.
May all of them dwell in perfect tranquility.
Let no one do harm to anyone. Let no one put the life of anyone in danger. Let no one, out of anger or ill will, wish anyone harm.

Just as a mother loves and protects her only child at the risk of her own life, we should cultivate the Boundless Love to offer to all living beings in the entire cosmos. We should let our boundless love pervade the whole universe, above, below, and across. Our love will know no obstacles, our heart will be absolutely free from hatred and enmity. Whether standing or walking, sitting or lying, as long as we are awake, we should maintain mindfulness of love in our own heart. This is the noblest way of living.

Free from wrong views, greed and sensual desires, living in beauty and realizing Perfect Understanding, whose who practice Boundless Love will certainly transcend Birth and Death.

Breathing in, I know I am breathing in. Breathing out, I know I am breathing out.
Breathing in, my in-breath has become deep. Breathing out, my out-breath has become slow.
Breathing in, I feel calm. Breathing out, I feel at ease. I am not struggling any more.
Breathing in, I smile. Breathing out, I release all my worries and anxieties.
Breathing in, I dwell deeply in the present moment.
Breathing out, I know this is a wonderful moment.
In, out.
Deep, slow
Calm, ease
Smile, release
Present moment, wonderful moment

Another practice of mindful breathing is the counting of breath. When you breathe in count one and when you breathe out count one again. The next breath count two and the release of the breath count two again. Do this until you reach ten then count backwards until you reach one.
