Time heals all wounds, according to the folk belief found in many parts of the world. When you are troubled by something, light a stick of incense and sit before it, noticing the slow burning and the sweet fragrance that comes from it. Let your thoughts focus on the way time passes, and remind yourself that with courage and goodwill, a sweet fragrance will come even from the difficulties that you currently find yourself in. Continue watching the incense until it completely burns out.
