Practice until you see yourself in the cruelest person on Earth, in the
child starving, in the political prisoner. Continue until you recognize
yourself in everyone in the supermarket, on the street corner, in a
concentration camp, on a leaf, in a dewdrop. Meditate until you see
yourself in a speck of dust in a distant galaxy. See and listen with the
whole of your being. If you are fully present, the rain of Dharma will
water the deepest seeds in your consciousness, and tomorrow, while you
are washing the dishes or looking at the blue sky, that seed will spring
forth, and love and understanding will appear as a beautiful flower.
