36 : Meditation : Practicing Compassion For Those Who Are Suffering The Mindful FIRE Podcast

    • Self-Improvement

Welcome to The Mindful FIRE Podcast, where we explore living mindfully on the path to financial independence and beyond. I'm your host Adam Coelho and I'm so glad you're here.

This guided meditation is a practice of offering kindness and compassion to those who are suffering.

With so much suffering happening in the world, the question of how I can help often leaves me feeling overwhelmed. But this simple practice of Metta, or loving kindness, which I learned from Sharon Salzberg and others, is a way of offering kindness and compassion to those who need it. Think of it as sending out kindness or good vibes to those who are suffering. It’s incredibly powerful. Not only does it feel good and put positive energy into the universe, it orients your mind towards kindness and helping. Training this muscle of compassion makes it more likely that you’ll recognize opportunities to help those in need in your own part of the world when the situation arises.

In this practice we begin by settling the mind by checking in with ourselves and then eventually finding our way to the peace of the breath. Then we switch gears into the loving kindness compassion practice which we direct towards our self, someone suffering in our life and finally to all those who are suffering in the world.

I hope you enjoy this practice and would love to hear what you think. Drop me a DM on Instagram @themindfulfirepodcast and don’t forget to subscribe for new episodes every Tuesday!

Be well, my friends.
