As you do this meditation, allow yourself to love. Visualize in the area of your heart, a white light, first just twinkling, sparkling, then becoming larger and more radiant. Enlarge this light until you can feel the light throughout your whole body. Now make that light larger than your body, expand it outward. Stay there for a moment and feel the warmth and bliss from this expanded light. Feel peaceful and safe.

1. Rodney L. Taylor, Ph.D.: Confucius and the Teaching of Goodness
“So across the ethical dilemmas of our high tech society, from the frontiers of science to the technological applications we consider so fundamental to our daily lives, the Confucian poses the question of whether such development can be cast as a fulfillment of “goodness” toward others.”

2. Krista Tippett: The Elemental Force of Music and the Human Voice:
A Place Where Grace Can Come In with Bobby McFerrin

“Bobby McFerrin is an explorer on frontiers of the human voice; he sings the territory between music and the human spirit. I knew this when I sat down to speak with him, but I couldn’t guess how beautifully he would be able to put it into words or how theologically he does so.”

3. Rev. Dave Dodson: Sounding the Call for Compassion
“Recently, 50 Central Coast residents met to discuss the importance of compassion in resolving both local and global problems. Representatives from Islamic, Jewish, Christian, Buddhist, new-age spirituality, nonviolence, and spiritual or ethical seeker communities agreed that “compassion lies at the heart of all religious, ethical and spiritual traditions.”
