I had a wonderful meditation, surrounded by my benefactors — then promptly got sucked into fighting with my landlord over text message, not the most metta kind of day! Oof. My big takeaway is it’s never too late to start again, opening the heart, opening to kindness.
This passage from Sharon stuck with me: “The moment that we recognize we’ve been distracted is like the magic moment in the practice. Because this is the time we have the chance to be really different.” That’s the same with the moment of waking up and realizing I’m getting sucked into negative emotions, seeing the world from a scarcity lens. Never too late to begin again.
