Good Enough

Practice today seems largely to be about having faith in the methods and intentions which underly it. As hard as it can seem at times like this to cultivate the understanding that it is good enough to just work on the causes and let the results come as they may I know it is just what is needed. Yes, I have only sat for 21 minutes today. Yes, my mind was all over the place. Yes, conditios aren’t perfect. And yet it’s all good enough. In fact it’s better than good enough because for the millions of others on this planet the opportunity to spend 20 minutes cultivating peace is simply not an option. May I be grateful for the blessings of the Dhamma and not squander my life.
