One Breath at a Time

Public·34 members

Hi Everyone, This week we read up to Step Nine!! p190 The contemplative question for this week is how well do you practice your mindfulness/loving-kindness or other meditative skills off the cushion and out in the real world?

I shared at the meeting that I am definitely a work in progress, and while sometimes I can remember to pause and respond rather than react, I can also slip right from meditation into an old behavior just because I don't want to disturb my "zen state", and that's not very skillful. The Buddha was very clear about this and Kevin says it plainly ."...the truest expression of Buddhist wisdom is found in our relationships, when we act for the benefit of others." p184

How well do you do this in your relationships? Where can you be more skillful? Or maybe it is in your relationship with yourself that needs the most compassion?

I'd love to hear your thoughts and experience.
