A Sense of Protection

by Friends of Godwin

Another benefit of loving-kindness meditation is that it gives you a sense of protection. It is interesting that loving-kindness can be so powerful it can in some ways protect you from situations. An aspect related to protection is that it also gives a sense of security, confidence. In one of the statements in the text it is mentioned that those who have loving-kindness feel at home wherever they are. So you don’t feel threatened, you don’t feel insecure because of loving-kindness. You feel at home with yourself, you feel at home with others.
