Mindful of the advice given me by the Venerable Dhammadipa Theri I am working with my aditthana to meditate formally each day for three hours. At this point I have 90 minutes completed and will need another 90 before bed to make my goal.

It’s funny to watch how quickly the mind balks at following through once it’s pressed to give a little more. I feel as though I spent a solid forty minutes of walking meditation complaining to myself about how tired I was. But, today was the first day after all and I know I do better in the morning than the evening.

May I push forward with kindness and compassion without giving up.
