Intention of Loving Kindness:
I am as gentle and kind to myself as I am with others. As I practice loving kindness within, my ability to give and express love grows. I acknowledge that self-abuse is pointless and without merit. I recognize that feelings of guilt arise from my judgment.
My feelings of culpability exist to teach me who I am. I gracefully accept lessons attached to my sense of guilt, and I forgive myself completely. I forgive myself for imagined errors as I remember that all of my experiences are drawn to me for an exquisite purpose. I release feelings of guilt through love and forgiveness. I intend to do my best, and doing my best is all I can do.
When I slip, I forgive myself and begin again. As I learn to forgive and love myself, I extend loving kindness to all.
