I love this gift. The process of reflecting carefully on my friends, and articulating all the taken-for-granted qualities I love about them felt deeply satisfying.
Our speech is one of the most important ways we can take into the world the lovingkindness, or metta, that we develop in meditation .
I’ve said already that mindful speech should not only be honest, but should be meant kindly. One of the most effective means of being kind in our speech and of helping others is to express appreciation of them.
This is an excellent practice.
