The best way to get over a broken heart is to actively and unconditionally wish joy and happiness for your beloved in her new life without you.
It’s a part of a meditation called metta—also known as maitrī, or lovingkindness—in which you practice a pure love free of self-interest, finding happiness in the happiness of another.
The focus of the meditation is to wish unconditional well-being on your beloved in several forms:
- Safety. May she be free from harm or danger.
- Happiness. May she be happy and joyful wherever she is.
- Physical health. May she be healthy and strong.
- Ease. May she have ease of well-being, walking through this world unencumbered and free of worry.
You must not only imagine this—you must actively wish it for her.
