Observe yourself fully experiencing life, not hiding from it, but rather allowing the full gamut of feelings and possible situations.  Accept what is.  While experiencing life fully, you will notice that moments of bliss are hidden in the pain, moments of joy are hidden in the suffering, forms of life are hidden in death, and eternity is hidden in impermanence.  (Compassion, p. 124)
