Be Soft In Your Practice

“Be soft in your practice. Think of the method as a fine silvery stream, not a raging waterfall. Have faith in its course. It will go its own way, meandering here, trickling there. It will find the grooves, the cracks, the crevices. Just follow it. Never let it out of your sight. It will carry you. ”

-– Sheng Jen

Rhonda’s Reflections:

Our default setting is self criticism and being harsh with our self and others as we travel this amazingmysterious journey called life. Open to the flow of it all, softly, willingly. When I stay close to the present moment this is easier to remember. Do not wander far from this moment, and if you do, gently call yourself back. Surrender to what is and to the unknown ahead, holding your clear intentions with a loose grip. Today, join me in finding the grroves, cracks and crevices, welcoming them like old friends.
