In this Social Metta practice, we'll be inviting A HEARTFUL STATE OR STATES to arise. To do this, simply say "May [INSERT YOUR HEARTFUL STATE(S) HERE] Arise", or more simply "[INSERT YOUR HEARTFUL STATE(S)]". Example: "May Joy Arise," "May Love Arise," "May Peace Arise," "May Freedom Arise," "May Big Mind Arise," "May Great Compassion Arise", etc.
- This practice is usually best done in a sequential order, since the sentence stem can get quite long. That said, if you're working with a quality that is only one syllable long (ex: Joy, Love, or Peace) we've found that it works just fine to do these in a spontaneous order.
- It's also fine to say, "May it Arise," in either a sequential or spontaneous order.
