Cherishment

April 8, 2006

Heart Practice from the Dalai Lama

  • Spend 5 minutes at the beginning of each day remembering that we all want the same thing (to be happy and loved) and we are all connected.
  • Spend 5 minutes cherishing yourself and others. Let go of judgments. Breathe in cherishing yourself and breathe out cherishing others. If the faces of people you are having trouble with appear, cherish them as well.
  • During the day, extend that attitude to everyone you meet — we are all the same — with “I cherish myself and you too (the store clerk, the client, family, coworker, fellow bus-rider, et al.)
  • Stay in the practice no matter what happens.
