This meditation comes from Compassionate San Antonio (www.sacompassion.net) and uses a 10 bead repetition of the alphabetical mnemonic designed by Dr. James Doty, CCARE Standford University.
It begins with Compassion and Ends with Love resulting in the Golden Rule: “Treat others and the Planet as you wish to be treated.”
and the Golden Rule.
How I use this meditation: I like this meditation when I am feeling challenged by a particular person or event. I hold the person or matter in my thoughts as I sit and spin the beads. I just repeat the words Compassion, Dignity, Equanimity, Forgiveness, Gratitude, Humility, Integrity, Justice, Kindness, and Love. And then when I reach the golden bead I remember the Golden Rule.
This very much helps me soften to the person and reminds me to think of them with these qualities. It often changes the situation to a more positive event for me.
