Maybe it’s the fatigue or maybe it’s just the cyclical nature of life on a muddy sphere orbiting a presently self-contained nuclear reaction, but the familiar feeling of being disconnected has arisen one again. Then again, when I reflect this way, it seems that it may have everything to do with having broken a precept recently. Despite doing everything in my power to stone and to apply opposing powers, the kamma of it can never be erased and that may be exactly what I’m experiencing now.

Regardless of the reasons for the feeling, it’s clear that only sustained practice will get me back in the feeling of a routine. What we do really matters, both now and in the future. May I always remember that.
