Exercise 15: Using mental imagery

Posted on Happy Minds!

From: Happiness - Matthieu Ricard

When a powerful feeling of desire, envy, pride, aggression,
or greed plagues your mind, try to imagine
situations that are sources of peace. Transport yourself
mentally to the shores of a placid lake or to a high
mountaintop overlooking a broad vista. Imagine
yourself sitting serenely, your mind as vast and clear
as a cloudless sky, as calm as a windless ocean.
Experience this calmness. Watch your inner tempests
subside and let this feeling of peace grow anew in
your mind.

Understand that even if your wounds
are deep, they do not touch the essential nature of
your mind, the fundamental luminosity of pure consciousness.
