Why do I practice? Sometimes it’s easy for me to forget that the Dhamma isn’t some machismo probing ground where I need to be as fierce and uncompromising with myself as possible. The Dhamma shouldn’t be able increasing suffering even if out at times if more difficult than going with the flow.
You see, I did it again. I got over excited, pushed too hard and snapped. I having note acted unskillfully I now have to confess, accept it, forgive myself and figure out hire top do better.
May I treat myself with more kindness on the future and realize that having goals doesn’t always mean reaching them. What is important is that I an constantly trying to move forward. May all beings be free from suffering!
