Give yourself a break

Give yourself a break. That doesn’t mean to say that you should drive to the closest bar and have lots to drink or go to a movie. Just enjoy the day, your normal existence. Allow yourself to sit in your home or take a drive into the mountains. Park your car somewhere; just sit; just be. It sounds very simplistic. But you begin to pick up on clouds, sunshine, and weather; the mountains, your past, your chatter with your grandmother and your grandfather, your own mother, your own father. You begin to pick up on a lot of things. Just let them pass like the chatter of a brook as it hits the rocks. We have to give ourselves some time to be." –Chogyam Trungpa, Ocean of Dharma

your chatter with your grandmother and your grandfather, your own mother, your own father.
You begin to pick up on a lot of things.
Just let them pass like the chatter of a brook as it hits the rocks. We have to give ourselves some time to be.”
