• See an angry person suffering and breathe in. Feel compassion for the angry person who suffers and breathe out.
  • When you stop wanting other people to be who you want them to be for yourself and accept them for who they are, things go more easily.
  • Instead of being the plaything of your negative thoughts or moods, become their master.
  • Visualize yourself at the base of a mountain whose summit is in a cloud. You start on this long difficult journey, concentrating on the present moment and putting one foot in front of the other. You trust that the path will get you to the summit, even though it is in the cloud. Near the summit, the clouds disperse and the way becomes clear. This meditation teaches that as long as you gather the strength to continue, you can conquer challenges.
