I find it good just to let my gaze wander,
Without any concern for time
And without any attempt to force concentration.
Gradually one part of the woods catches my attention,
And then one tree
And eventually one branch of the tree.
My scattered thoughts come to focus on a single experience
And then dive deeper and deeper into that one reality
(the universe in a blade of grass).
Oftentimes the result is that my attention is absorbed
By some small flower or leaf at my feet
Which I had not even noticed before
And I am at peace!
