Begin the Sequence of Sending and Taking With Yourself

 


What you do for yourself - any gesture of kindness, any gesture of gentleness, any gesture of honesty and clear seeing toward yourself - will affect how you experience your world. In fact, it will transform how you experience the world. What you do for yourself, you're doing for others, and what you do for others, you're doing for yourself. When you exchange self for others in the practice of tonglen, it becomes increasingly uncertain what is out there and what is in here. ... Start where you are. This is very important. Tonglen practice (and all meditation practice) is not about later...
