"Come back with your mindful breathing, practice touching the Earth
Deeply. Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet, as if
you are massaging the earth with each step. Your footprints will be
the marks of an emperor's seal calling for Now to come back to Here,
so that life will be present, so that your blood will bring the color
of love to your face, so that the wonders of life will appear, and
all anxieties will be transformed into peace and joy."
