Dear Classmates on the Path
Tonight's transmission is on the 4th Verse. We begin the podcast after those present in the class all shared how our practice was progressing with each other. Maybe you, too, would like to reflect how your practice has been going for you.
My breathing and my steps
Enable me to generate the energy of mindfulness,
So that I can recognize and touch
the wonders of life within and around me.
Our teacher, Thay Phap Hai, reminds us that stopping and calm abiding allow us to uncover what is already there. We also will benefit if we can ask, 'We're stopping what?'
Another wonderful practice that our teacher urges us to try this week is 'Lazy Hour'.
Enjoy your breath this week--and your laziness.
