Awakening to what is apparently true

Train in taking and sending alternately. Put them on the breath.

As you breathe in, imagine all the suffering and negativity of others as thick black smoke coming in through your right nostril and into your heart. As you breathe out, imagine all your own happiness and wellbeing as silvery light coming from your heart and going out through your left nostril to all beings everywhere.
