Time to take a pause, breathe, and enjoy the peaceful beauty of a night sky filled with light.

Here is a visual point to focus on – a Cathedral of Light. This is a popular fixture of the Chicago Botanic Garden’s annual winter outdoor Lightscape. This nighttime walk integrates light structures with spectacular natural settings.

And…to experience the peaceful, liberating energy of wishing all beings well, here’s an ancient Buddhist chant, with translation, for you to absorb – and listen to on YouTube – the Loving Kindness Chan

Metta Chant

May I be free from enmity and danger
May I be free from mental suffering
May I be free from physical suffering
May I take care of myself happily
May my parents teachers relatives and
friends, fellow Dharma farers
be free from enmity and danger
be free from mental suffering
be free from physical suffering
may they take care of themselves happily
….
May all beings be free from suffering
May whatever they have gained not be lost
All beings are owners of their own karma
As far as the highest plane of existence
to as far down as the lowest plane
in the entire universe
whatever beings that move on earth
may they be free from mental suffering and enmity
may they be free from physical suffering and danger
As far as the highest plane of existence to
as far down as the lowest plane in the entire universe…
