Begin Again

What do you do when you realize your spiritual practice has gotten sidetracked, again? I think the Buddhists have the best answer: you acknowledge it, you release it, and you begin again.

It helps if you can make some small but tangible changes, now.

Change the music in the car CD player. Start one of the books you’ve been meaning to read. Think about what you’re eating. Sit. Walk. Sleep.

I may not have been able to prevent getting sidetracked, getting distracted, having to deal with unpleasant situations and people in the mundane world. But what I wanted before is still what I want. I can give up, or I can begin again.

I begin again.
