T.D.D. --- What We’ve Been Practicing For

Tricycle Daily Dharma October 18, 2011

What We’ve Been Practicing For

In times of crisis, we often feel we don’t have the time or energy to practice, but those are precisely the times when the practice is most necessary. This is what we’ve been practicing for: the situations where the practice doesn’t come easily. When the winds of change reach hurricane force, our inner refuge of mindfulness, concentration, and discernment is the only thing that will keep us from getting blown away.
