To expand our compassion we can apply our imagination to everyday situations.  
Sometimes when the wind blows, I imagine that my compassion mixes with the wind and 
is carried in every direction to touch all sentient beings…
We can also do contemplation involving our five sense faculties.  
For example, we continually have objects in our visual field.  
Having first given rise to compassion mentally, we can then spread that compassion
 to any sentient being who appears before our eyes and imagine that they experience all of our compassion, love and joy.
