Take this opportunity to be silently mindful about someone that you care for deeply.
Bring to mind three things that you like about them.
Write them down if you wish, and take some time to appreciate this person's presence in your life.
Consider the faces of strangers, and see if you can extend the warmth that you feel for your loved ones to these people too.
As you colour the mandala before you, imagine the compassion you feel extending to all living beings.
Feel loving-kindness expand with the colours that you add to the page.
May we all be happy, safe and free from suffering.
