Bringing It Home

What is tonglen when you’re not willing to park the car? What is karuna bhavana when you don’t let your partner sleep in? What is dana parami of you pass up a negar on the street simply because it would be an inconvenience?

There are countless opportunities to polish my paramis. May I not waste this life by failing to practice them. Regardless of how hard, anxiety producing or boring or may be may I live with integrity and put my pursuit of bodhicitta always to the fore.
