Set your body down comfortably.
As you control your breathing, let your mind watch your body.
Tell yourself, It’s all right.
Then your soul will become more comfortable,
and your body will gain new comfort
and strength along with it
You can obtain genuine strength and rest
within yourself. Your body is your refuge and
your energy generator.
Your perfect refuge is inside your body.
When you’re shaken and confused,
go into your body.
If you relax your body, control your breathing,
and tell yourself, It’s all right, with those words
your soul will gain strength.
You cannot find true rest outside yourself,
no matter how far you may drag your body.
Our souls gain greater strength from
comforting ourselves than from being
supported by others.
