Can you coax your mind from its wandering and keep to the original oneness?

- Through practicing mindfulness and devout meditation...

Can you let your body become supple as a newborn child's?

- For suppleness brings flexibility and resilience.

Can you cleanse your inner vision until you see nothing but the light?

- And welcome this into being without reservation.

Can you love people and lead them without imposing your will?

- People are all the same where it matters most.

Can you deal with the most vital matters by letting events take their course?

- What is, is - and what is meant to be - also is.

Can you step back from you own mind and thus understand all things?

- And this shall also be understood once one achieves becoming a silent witness.

Giving birth and nourishing, having without possessing, acting with no expectations, leading and not trying to control:
this is the supreme virtue.

- And this is as it should be.

Sometimes waiting until the body needs sleep works against achieving stillness of the mind. Perhaps if you practice this at another time, then it may become easier.

I always tried to do it before going to bed but me I just observe my mind and see where it goes but one thing is I concentrate on my head because I have conditioned myself to believe that the mind resides in the head I know this is not true but its hard to get out of this mindset.
