"So find a position
that's comfortable for you
and when you feel like it,
let your eyes close.

Take a few deep breaths.

Let your shoulders be soft.
Let your arms be soft.
Let your belly be soft.
Let your legs be soft.
Let your face be soft.
Let your lips be soft.

And if you can,
let your heart be soft and
open to whatever arises
for you in this moment."

Jack Kornfield
