Meditation and Metta

I have been trying a meditation practice using Sam Harris' "Waking Up" course. Today, he had us try "Metta" which means "loving-kindness". What he had me do was wordlessly wish someone I care about, "May you be happy. May you be peaceful. May you be free from suffering." I am amazed at how good that made me feel. I might like this meditation stuff.
