Oct 25, 2021 - The Importance of Practice

In the beginning of practice, we just observe what’s happening. But if we stay with mindfulness, with effort and concentration, we begin to build a real willingness to be here. And we begin to know tension. Tension in the body is a signal that there’s a habit here. We’re trying to see a moment in time—what’s actually happening in that moment—and it’s usually tension! Some amount of not wanting what the moment is offering us, wishing it was better, or wishing we could get rid of whatever is present. But right in that tension, that is a moment that we can awaken.
