“Sometime go outside and sit,
in the evening at sunset,
where there is a slight breeze that touches your body,
And makes the leaves and trees move gently.
You're not trying to do anything, really.
You're simply allowing yourself to be,
Very open from deep within,
Without holding on to anything whatsoever.
Don't bring something back from the past, from a memory.
Don't plan that something should happen.
Don't hold on to anything in the present
Nothing you perceive needs to be nailed down.
Simply let experience take place, very freely,
So that your empty, open heart
Is suffused with the tenderness of true compassion.”
