How to Prepare for Metta Meditation (Aliens included)
The "Metta Meditation" should be extended to beings (Visiting Aliens) outside our solar system if they by chance venture into our domain.
I have reproduced WISE uttering by Lord Buddha (Sutta) for Mass Awareness!
There are four words in Pali that is very difficult to translate into English!
Fortunately English is a language that constantly changes and improves its vocabulary to understand Eastern Wisdom.
Emotional intelligence, universal and unbound compassion (not carnal love) "no soul" are few of them.
Western civilization is based on "God and Soul" bound Dogma and might take few generations to entertain Eastern Wisdom.
Western dogma is also bound by "One World System" and find it very difficult to entertain other living worlds outside our Solar System.
That is why they covered up the Alien Visitation in Roswell 70 years ago and still carrying on with the misinformation campaign.

Well, I had done a verse in 2013
The Discourse On Loving Kindness
He who is skilled in doing good
And who wishes to attain that state of calm (Nibbana) should act thus
He should be able, upright, perfectly upright
Obedient, gentle and humble
Contented, easily supportable (not a burden to others)
With few duties, simple in livelihood
Controlled in senses, discreet, not impudent
Not greedily attached to families
He should not commit any slight wrong
So that other wise men might deplore
May all beings be happy and safe
May their hearts be happy
Whatsoever living beings that exist
Weak, or strong, without exception
Long, stout or medium
Short, small or large
Those seen (visible) or unseen (not visible)
And those dwelling far (Aliens included) or near
Those who are born and those who are to be born
May all beings, without exception, be happy minded
Let no one deceive another
Nor despise anyone anywhere
In anger or ill will
Let them not wish each other harm
Just as a mother would guard her only child
At the risk of her own life
Even so towards all beings
Let him cultivate boundless mind
Let thoughts of boundless love pervade the whole world
Above, below and across
Without any obstruction
Without any hatred, without any enmity
Whether he stands, walks, sits
Or lies down, as long as he is awake
He should develop this mindfulness
This they say is the Highest conduct here
Not falling into (wrong) views
Virtuous and endowed with vision (insight)
He discards attachment to sensuous desires
Truly, he does not come again; to be conceived in a womb
By the firm determination of this truth may I ever be well
By the firm determination of this truth may I be free from illness
By the firm determination of this truth may peaceful victory be mine!

This is what should be done by one who is skilled in achieving his own good of peace and tranquility.
He should be efficient and competent (sakko),
Honest and upright (udu cha su ju cha)
Pleasant and polite in speech (Suvacco)
(Suvaco does not n mean obedient)
Gentle in demeanor ( gentle composure -mudu)
He should be modest and not arrogant (anatimani)
He should be content and satisfied (santussako)
And be easily supportable ((subarro).
He should not be over involved (appa kikko) and
Simple and light in his life style (sallahukavutti)
He should keep his sense faculties calmed and tranquilled (santindrio)
He should be wise (nipako) but not too bold and daring ( appagabbo not arrogant)
He should not be attached to households (kulesu ananugiddo0
He should never resort to doing anything so mean (na cha kudham samachare) whereby the rest of the wise world would reproach him (yene vinnu pare upavedeyyuum)
May all biengs enjoy happiness and comfort (sabbe satta bHavantu skitatta)
May they feel safe and secure (sukino va khemino hontu)
May all be happy and secure.
May all beings become happy in their heart of hearts!
And think of every living thing without exception:
the weak and the strong, from the smallest to the
largest, whether you can see them or not, living
nearby or far away, beings living now or yet to arise –
may all beings become happy in their heart of hearts!
May no one deceive or look down on anyone
anywhere, for any reason. Whether through feeling
angry or through reacting to someone else, may no
one want another to suffer.
As strongly as a mother, perhaps risking her life,
cherishes her child, her only child, develop an
unlimited heart for all beings.
Develop an unlimited heart of friendliness for the
entire universe, sending metta above, below, and all
around, beyond all narrowness, beyond all rivalry,
beyond all hatred.
Whether you are staying in one place or travelling,
sitting down or in bed, in all your waking hours rest in
this mindfulness, which is known as like living in
heaven right here and now!
In this way, you will come to let go of views, be
spontaneously ethical, and have perfect Insight. And
leaving behind craving for sense pleasures, from the
rounds of rebirth you will finally be completely free!
