Imagine now that you are a satellite. As a satellite, you are both a receiver of energy and a transmitter of energy. The energy you send and receive travels around the globe. You are, in fact, an integral part of a much larger human energy transmission system. You are broadcasting at all times, day and night, whether you are aware of it or not. Tune in to your frequency now. Imagine that you are broadcasting pure loving kindness throughout the world.
First, send a transmission to one you love dearly. Visualize that face as you do so—this is how you direct your transmission. Now broadcast the same loving kindness to an acquaintance, someone you know but do not necessarily love. Again, direct it by concentrating on this person's face. Finally, think of one whom you once loved, but toward whom you now feel ambivalence or enmity because they have hurt or wronged you deeply. Take your time to do this, making sure it is kindness and goodwill you are transmitting. This person is, after all, worthy of kindness! This person too has suffered, is suffering now. Send this person compassion and loving kindness now. Take this moment to create the possibility of future love and harmony between you now.
Think to yourself:
Cultivating loving kindness for others, especially those who have hurt us in some way, begins to clear the path toward reconciliation. This may be a most difficult challenge, but consider the price of failure. Trust that you will have the courage to accomplish this—know that your life can be utterly transformed through such reconciliations with others. Keep an open heart and an open mind. Believe, once again, that love is possible.
