If we don't make our daily life our practice, we'll never practice. So if the question is, when do I practice? The answer is all the time. It's a continual opportunity with the people we meet, whether that's in the flesh or in our own thinking pattern, to remember that there's something else we can do besides create fake news. We can make the decision to either, as we've explored, wish them loving kindness.

May you be happy, may you be free. We can make the decision to, I see your suffering. These are great and I highly encourage you to start to make the Tong Lin practice, the practice that is designed to take direct aim at the part of us that creates the separation, at the part of us that generates all the suffering, to use every interaction to start to take aim at this. Because in the practices of loving kindness and the practices of compassion, we're still involved. We're the ones wishing, we're the ones seeing.

In the practices of the Tong Lin, we're attempting to realize the true meaning of selflessness. This is where it's at, especially if you have very little time to practice. You might as well up the ante and make it extreme. Love.
