The rhododendrons have folded up their leaves for warmth. We can find inner warmth in our heart.
By opening our heart, we feel warmly toward people, pets, and places. And, as ever, what the world needs now is love, sweet love. It's the only thing that so little of is expressed.
Start with gratitude and feel whether a little spark, a little ember glows somewhere in the body--maybe around the heart, maybe in the hands or the belly.
Experiment with spreading that warmth throughout the body. Feel the sensations in the body and keep your attention there.
Eventually, the sun will warm the rhododendrons. Meanwhile, I'm sending warmth to you, dear reader.
