Today, if you find yourself ruminating over some problem you don't know how to fix, some personal flaw you don't know how to change - and thinking is not leading to solutions - pause to feel the presence of the Great Kindness. Feel Love's delight in you. Feel Love's patience with you. Feel Love's deep affection for all parties. Rest in this awareness for as long as possible.
