I meditated today while on the train going back home after a few days away in London.

I meditated on wishing love and it struck me that living beings are rather like passengers on a train of dissatisfaction. I developed the wish for them to be able to get off the train and find true happiness. I imagined this scenario and worried a bit about what they would find if they go off the train. After all, unsatisfactory though it is, the train is all they know, and the train IS going somewhere, which is probably a good thing.

But then it seemed to me that once they were off it they could see that this train of dissatisfaction was actually just running around again and again in one big loop, going nowhere.

I wished sincerely that all living beings could find their way off this train, and find happiness.
