The Gift of Spiritual Practice

November 8, 2017

            When I began spiritual practice, now nearly five decades ago, (oh my!), I believe I had a barely conscious belief that I would beyond the reach of life’s difficulties, ultimately rising above it all, unmoved, a stone Buddha, unshaken and unmoved.

            It hasn’t worked that way.

            The gifts of practice have been great, but not what I imagined.  Instead of rising above, I am more aware than ever of my tender, quivering heart.  Instead of calm transcendence I have found a greater vulnerability and sensitivity, to my own plight and the plight of others.  In other words, there is a greater sense of kindness and compassion, toward myself and all beings, a greater sense of the fragility and vulnerability of life in all its forms.

            I would not trade that for non-feeling, for any state that cuts me off from this tenderness of being alive.
