#SOLI : Lovingkindness : Writing Prompts

interior © 2010 Mahala Mazerov

Welcome to the latest project on the LuminousHeart blog. I hope you’ll join in. If you haven’t seen it yet, you probably want to read the Summer of Lovingkindness Invitational post first. Just so you know, there are no participation commitments. You are welcome however and whenever you choose to engage.

Glorious heartfelt thanks to all of you who have signed up, emailed, tweeted, sent good thoughts, and invited your friends to join in the Summer of Lovingkindness Invitational.

(Thanks, too, to everyone who kept the momentum going when I had web site woes. Everything is fixed and comments are working again.)

When I sent #SOLI into the world, I had a deep wish it would grow over time to be much more than my singular offering. Even though we’re just barely getting started, I feel this is happening already. You’re gathering it up in your arms, making it your own. Some of you are starting new blogs, testing shaky writer’s voices, looking through art portfolios. I couldn’t be happier. Or more grateful.

I have some writing prompts for you, but first, a few housekeeping items:

I’ve created a “What’s #SOLI” link in the navigation bar above. You will always be able to find this post and the original Invitation under that link. (You can find my own #SOLI offerings via the Categories link on the right hand sidebar.)

If you’re on Twitter, I’m @LuminousHeart. I’ve started a SOLI group. (I didn’t use the hashtag because I was afraid it would botch the link.) If I haven’t added you already, do join the list and I will add you on my end.

Also if you’re on Twitter, use the #SOLI tag in your tweets. It will help me find you.

If you’re on Facebook and can walk me through setting up a Fan (?) Page, I’d greatly appreciate it. I already have a FB account, but only use it to connect to people who aren’t on twitter so far. ;-)

Now for Writing Prompts!

These are only ideas to get your juices flowing. Feel free to take them up or ignore them all.

  • How do you define love, lovingkindness?
  • Do you have a  metta / maitri /lovingkindness meditation practice? Write about your experiences. (Let me know in the comments if you want me to teach this practice to you.)
  • Artists, Poets, Musicians – what are the colors of lovingkindness, the images, the sounds, the symbols?
  • Have you ever had a profound experience from an act of lovingkindness – given or received?
  • How do you practice lovingkindness in daily life?
  • If you remembered that everything is impermanent, ie: remembered you could lose something / someone at any time, how would that change your love? How would it change your actions?
  • Who have you loved, who have you been kind to?
  • What person or thing has changed you by the loving of them?
  • Does lovingkindness mean telling the truth all the time or is there love in telling “white lies” ?
  • Love and activism – your thoughts?
  • Is there room for lovingkindness in business? Can a business succeed without it?
  • Describe an experience of thinking of another’s needs ahead of your own. Was it a “should” or a kindness? What was the result?
  • Which is harder for you, lovingkindness towards yourself or towards others?
  • Tell a story, a memory you have of lovingkindness.

That should be enough to get you started!

Watch the #SOLI hashtag on Twitter for more prompts over time including quotes. Or use your own favorite quotes as a jumping off point.

Let yourself be inspired, too, by reading the other participants. Something they create could very well inspire you to new ideas of your own.
