What is your practice?

We are all practicing something in this life, in every moment.

Our human minds are inclined to see what’s wrong, what’s lacking, what’s imperfect. This tendency gives us practice in contraction, in closing our hearts.

There is also the possibility of choosing to practice opening our hearts and reaching for connection.

It is a disciplined heart that chooses, again and again, the practice of inviting true connection, and the joy that this brings.

This discipline is not confined or oppressed in its flavor. This discipline is more like a dedication; a dedication to holding everyone’s needs as precious, and to treating self and other with dignity.
