- Be careful of the words you use, keep them short and sweet, you never know from day to day which ones you will have to eat.
- When working with pain, soften around it rather than resist it. Expand your awareness to include it rather than tighten and contract. Welcome the pain and make friends with it. This takes a lot of practice.
- If you want to know what you were doing in the past, look at your body and present situation, because it was shaped by past actions. If you want to know what your situation will be in the future, look at what you're doing with your mind now.
