State of peace

This is to be done by one skilled in aims who wants to break through to the state of peace:
Be capable, upright, and straightforward, easy to instruct, gentle, and not proud, content and easy to support, with few duties, living lightly, with peaceful faculties, masterful, modest, and no greed for supporters.
Do not do the slightest thing that the wise would later censure.
Think: Happy and secure, may all beings be happy at heart. Whatever beings there may be, weak or strong, without exception, long, large, middling, short,
subtle, blatant, seen & unseen, near & far, born & seeking birth: May all beings be happy at heart. Let no one deceive another or despise anyone anywhere,
or through anger or irritation wish for another to suffer.
As a mother would risk her life to protect her child, her only child, even so should one cultivate a limitless heart with regard to all beings. With good will for the entire cosmos, cultivate a limitless heart: above, below, and all around, unobstructed, without enmity or hate. Whether standing, walking, sitting, or lying down, as long as one is alert, one should be resolved on this mindfulness. This is called a sublime abiding here and now.
Not taken with views, but virtuous and consummate in vision, having subdued desire for sensual pleasures, one never again will lie in the womb.
