Why does it always feel like we are treading water? And juggling at the same time.
There is so much to do in a day-
work, special projects, manage your house, your family, all the commitments and appointments,
all the email, Facebook, Twitter trends and news to follow-
our day is so full of stuff to do that we rarely find any rest.
If we do find rest, or deliberately take it, sometimes we feel like we are sinking and giving up the ground that we fought so hard to gain. Any progress that we had made is given back and we feel the need to work harder just to get caught up.
If we are constantly flailing our arms and legs just to keep our head above water, when are we ever going to find the time for our own practice? When are you going to find the time to share generously, to make an impact and to do something meaningful?
To train on the path means that we change all of this. It is not changing what you do but how you do it.
You can learn a better technique.
You can change your habits.
You can be stronger. Improve your endurance.
You might even be able to find a way out altogether.
