Honing in on a daily practice
It would be enormously helpful to commit to sitting at least once a day, and beyond that to choose one or two other practices to pursue, whether it's mindful listening or lovingkindness mantras. I suspect that mindful listening would be a good practice, since it's easy to assume you know what the people you live with think and feel before they even open their mouths.
Another thing I should work on is letting go of my expectations for the outcome of the things I do, particularly with my children. They are getting to an age where they will make and live with their own choices, and I have far less influence than I used to. I'm merely a facilitator; they have their own independent relationships with the universe and eternity.
Hmmm...I felt far more inspired about writing about a few practices to focus on before it took me half an hour to reclaim this blog from the blogger/Google tangle! Perhaps I'll try again another day!
