NOT a Sprint, BUT a Stroll

The path of mastering

the Buddha’s teachings

is NOT a sprint

BUT a stroll.

At first content yourself

to meditate for five minutes

every morning

and for five minutes

every evening.

As doing so

could reap greater benefits

than enduring

a sixty minute sitting session

once a month

or even once a week.

For a humble, consistent,

twice daily practice

will always trump

an inconsistent practice:

heroic in effort

yet sporadic in frequency;

as drop by drop

a cavern’s great stalactites

are formed.

Rest assured,

that if at first

we cultivate a practice

merely five minutes in length

but repeating

every twelve hours

or so

then it is only a matter of time

before circumstances shift,

and ability grows,

and spontaneously we find ourselves

meditating twenty,

or forty,

or even sixty minuets

twice, daily.

And shortly thereafter

we could find

that we have memorized the practice text:

effortlessly, effectively, and spontaneously.

What could you do

when hour-long meditations,

free of the need to read a manual,

have become your habit:

easy, and pleasurable, and transformative?

Let us conclude

with a simple

call to action

The production of these webinars, and videos, and livestreams,

and podcasts, and blogs, and class materials is supported

by the generosity of viewers, and listeners, and readers

just like you.
