Being a prayer flag

Sometimes, when I practice tonglen, I imagine that I am a prayer flag.

As the unpredictable winds of everyday life blow past me, I try to hang on, even though I may flutter somewhat in the breeze.

As I flutter, I try to spread the blessings of compassion, love, humor and good karma to those downwind of me.

In that way, I try to be resilient yet flexible, all the while giving to others to make their lives better.
