Today is set to be the third, grueling day of moving in a row and it just occurred to me that, rather than being swept up in the panic and carried away by the crushing physical labor, I can try to get some space and view this as a training opportunity. Can I practice patience with slow moving helpers, trucks sitting needlessly at the leading dock, with my own anxiety over the difficulty of backing a twenty-four foot truck out the length of two football fields?

There are few things that cause me as much stress as moving so why waste this precious opportunity trying to simply get it over with when I can see clearly the world of dukkha? May I make the best of this opportunity to prescribe the paramis and see into the Cattari Ariya Saccani.
