See. Look Deep.

There are times you may sit and look at a child when she’s sleeping.

While the child sleeps, she reveals tenderness, suffering, and hope.

Just contemplate a child sleeping and observe your feelings.

Understanding and compassion will arise in you, and you will know how to take care of that child and make her happy.

The same is true for your partner.

You should have a chance to observe him when he sleeps.

Look deeply, and see the tenderness that is revealed, the suffering, the hope, and the despair that can be expressed during sleep.

Sit there for fifteen minutes or half an hour and just look.

Understanding and compassion will arise in you, and you will know how to be there for your partner.
