Mindfulness, Focus and Real Life

Life is keeping me busy. I've actually managed meditative practice a few times this week, though, which has been wonderful. Pema Chödrön talks of having more room in her mind after Practice, and it is easy for me to understand the analogy.

I could have totally used the time today. It has been hard to be mindful this evening, especially .... Which sutra is it where the Buddha turns to his monks and says something to the effect of "See how happy you are? You have no crops to fail, no animals to husband...."?

Well, I have chosen my path, and it is truly a wonderful one. Time to take a moment to be grateful, and to smile at all the elements in my life, for they are truly all a blessing.
