How to create space? When you have a few minutes, look ahead of you and simply imagine that you are surrounded by empty space in all directions. If you can see the empty sky through a window then look at the sky, but if not that is fine. Just imagine space everywhere: no walls, no boundaries, no buildings, nothing. Don’t start thinking about work, family, things you need to do. Simply imagine that everything is just like the vast, open sky, like empty space, and let your mind blend into the space so that it becomes just as vast and open. You can close your eyes if that helps. Visualize this spaciousness for a short while. After a minute or two you’ll start to really feel spacious mentally. Your chest will open up and you’ll feel relieved of all those tensions and thoughts that were crowding in on you just a few minutes ago. Your mind opens up and then your way of thinking changes, just like that. It takes just five or ten minutes and is so easy—that is the magic of creating space. You don’t have to believe me. Try it for yourself and you will see.
When you feel the spaciousness in your heart after doing this for a few minutes, maintain that and rest there. That is the crucial point.
