71st Anniversary of the United Nations
October 23, 2016
I was honored to be asked to be one of five faith leaders for this event — and the only woman, at that!
The theme was “People in Motion: Giving Refugees a Sense of Place” so I offered a Metta meditation, using three categories:
- Self: Because when each one of us know goodwill and inner & outer safety for ourselves, it’s easier to be able to know what you’re wishing for others. The sense of the truth of it is deeper.
- Refugee: A specific individual or a group.
- All beings: We are not separate.
Thank you to UN-USA, SF Chapter Director Mary Steiner for the invitation. And, to Deb for her support and this video as it was quite a challenge from the back of the hall!
“May all beings know unconditional friendliness.
Let all beings know inner & outer safety all the days of our lives”
