May all sentient beings have happiness and its causes, May all sentient beings be free from suffering and its causes. May all sentient beings be inseparable with joy, which is without suffering. May all sentient beings abide in equanimity, free of bias, attachment and anger.
In Venerable MingyurRinpoche's book "The Joy of Living", he told us how, through his practice of meditation, he solved his childhood panic problem and kept his mind still and peaceful in this impermanent changing world and with joyfulness. This was also examined and proved by western science. I'm not a person who is good at reading and the book looked quite long and thick, so I tried to read it on and off. Sometimes the meaning would appear very clearly to me, sometimes fleetingly clear. It was when I reached the last part of the book I found the prayer of the Four Immeasurables and then I realized...the source of happiness comes from "wish you...and... May you" instead of "wish I...or...may I". Once we are selfless in our wish for the goodness of all beings without an "I" involved, then of course there is no cause for separation between enemies and loved ones. Then happiness will arise naturally.
