Next, let's try smiling to the global human community, which can help resolve racial and political tensions. In this sense the Inner Smile is a kind of focused prayer, but a very neutral prayer, one that prays for mutual unconditional acceptance between all beings. Once that level of inner respect is established, anything can be worked out.
We could smile to any collective global community, be it the community of animals, the community of trees, the community of dolphins, or butterflies, whatever community you feel attracted to, smile into its collective heart. Be open to it smiling back to you. Silent practice, one minute.
If you smile to Nature, you may get a smile back from the "Green Man" or other nature spirits. Don't be alarmed if their smile is a bit cool or impersonal, as they are not human.
