ALL MY RELATIONS
I have this little altar where I place the symbols of some of my important pieces, shift them around, and look at them in diverse ways. It's a fun meditation. Sometimes, when it seems too fascinating, I get get saved by remembering the Buddha raising his hand and saying, "Finger pointing to the moon -- look at the moon, not the finger." And then I recall being told, "Don't look at altars. Something was put in your heart for a reason. Just look in your heart." Can't really talk about that but I sometimes I get a few pointers at the altar -- like now -- and I feel grateful.
