Body Prayer

When in emotional turmoil-or unable to feel clearly any emotion-experiment in this fashion: breathe in while feeling the word lawile (lah-wee-lay); breathe out while feeling the word netbayun (net-bah-yoon). Embrace all of what you feel and allow all emotions to wash through as though you were standing under a gentle waterfall. Follow this flow back to its source and find there the spring from which all emotion arises. At this source, consider what emotion has meaning for the moment, what action or non-action is important now.
