Course Correction

I haven’t technically done anything wrong I can’t shake the feeling that my mind is headed in the wrong direction. I have been consumed by lust; my mind is aflame and being away at my sister-in-law’s has meant my formal practice has been truncated.

Perhaps, too, I feel kind of at a loss without loftier aspirations to guide me since I have decided to scale back and focus on the fundamentals all over again. Still, that doesn’t make much sense given that am refocusing in order to strengthen my practice.

The one thing of which I am certain is that my heart is adrift and has been blown off course. The imperative now is to right it and set the correct course again. Namo Buddhaya!
