Failure

This week has witnessed my repeated failures to live up to my own practice commitments. When I think about why I see that my failings are “excusable” and understandable but what does that really mean? Yes, I’m incredibly busy just like everyone else in this city and in cities all over the world. Yes, I have family commitments and obligations buy so do billions of others. 

When this opportunity to practice is gone what will these excuses account to? If I truly believe that my practice regimen is necessary then why do I allow inertia and laziness to derail me so easily? Rather than giving up or scaling back can I accept my failures as a challenge and keep waking firmly ahead? May I remember my priorities and not ever lose sight of the fact that I’m teetering on the edge of the bottomless abyss that odd samsara.
