Faith in Our Teachers

I don’t know why but even after years of practice, I am ever amazed when my meditation bears fruit. Having redoubled my efforts to cultivate metta and especially for Donald Trump and the horde of Republicans who seem intent I destroying the lives of 300 million people, I often feel that I’m getting nowhere. Many a session is spent swinging from doubt to restlessness but I am blessed to have cultivated enough presence of mind not to be discouraged. 

I have faith in the Buddha. In the Dhamma. In the fourfold Sangha who protects and carries on these teachings. When it doesn’t work out immediately, when I’m assailed by doubt I can rest in faith and confidence knowing that the issue is within my heart but the Path is true.
