Sit calmly. Breathe. Let your mind be still. Let your body rest. Let your energy flow naturally throughout your body, bringing loving kindness to yourself. Let your brain be silent, your thoughts cease, your worries titrate down to nothing more than a simmering breeze. In this manner temper your suffering, reduce your anxiety, turn down your inner patter, your judgments, your condemnations of self and other. None of these things really exist; they are mere inventions of your mind seeking resolution, but you will not find resolution there. The mind is a dead end street. Instead let your spirit find you once again in the house of your physical body where it has been wandering and waiting. Let it greet you and take you down the streets of calmness, even as you become active again. Let yourself be whole in this way, in companionable silence within the quiet self!
