It is nice to pace yourself. Slow and steady wins the race. But sometimes you need to push yourself. Sometimes it is good to stretch the legs, see how how far you can go.
What is off in the distance that you have had your eye on?
It could be a project. A goal. Sure. Could definitely be house cleaning.
But it could be your practice.
What if you sat in meditative equipoise for ten hours today?
What if you did 1000 prostrations today, or sun salutations for three hours?
What if you offered 10,000 mandalas this month? Or recited OM MANI PADME HUNG 100,000 times?
What if you could replace your distracted, tired mind with a mind that was powerful and stable? What if hesitation and doubt were replace with confidence and certainty?
Time to run. What are you waiting for?
