Contemplation: No Single Thing to Love

Review the guidelines for practice and, remembering that words are not always as they seem, take this as your object of contemplation:

It is due to attachment to the trace of self that we are deluded and unable to enter enlightenment. If you realize there is no single thing to love, you can gradually accomplish enlightenment. If you do not arise sentiments in regards to the teacher, then you are able to reach Peerless Correct Equal Enlightenment.

from Kihwa's commentary to the Sutra of Perfect Enlightenment, page 216
