Simple Joy

It’s easy to miss the simple joys that come about as a result of the practice. Simply practicing the precepts and starting each moment with the intent to benefit beings is a blessing that isn’t garish or loud in the way material acquisition is but it is so much more valuable. I realize that, lately,the most restful time of day is when I find myself alone walking somewhere and I’m filled with a feeling of goodwill towards all the beings I see. This seemingly spontaneous arising of metta is surely the result of much effort.

May I never forget the joys of the Dhamma and may I walk the path to completion.
