When we do Tonglen, there is a stage where we think of a stranger, just a person we had passed whom we don’t know.

And I noticed this morning, that when I get to the security boom at work, I’ve been looking at the guard’s face.  I’ve been noticing them as people, not just as annoying aspects of my day.

Progress!  Yes!

(Giving myself a silver star for this, and reminding myself that there is still so much I can do to be more kind.)
