Engaged Tonglen

What better way to practice giving ease and taking on the suffering of others than through being of service to others throughout one’s day. I can tell my practice of breathing in the suffering of others hasn’t proceeded apace with my ideas of my progress when I’m willing to visualize breathing in my wife’s suffering but am unwilling to change the next diaper.

May I sacrifice my comforts, laziness and inertia on the altar of compassion. May may thoughts, words and, most of all, my deeds reflect and embody my aspirations.
