Discipline

Some days are harder than others and it seems that today is one of them. I have managed to tick off nearly every thing on my conditioning routing except for the most important ones: Dhamma Study and an hour and a half of meditation. How have I managed it? By being taken in by the allure of sense pleasures. And, even if I haven’t yet succumbed my mind has been reoccupied and inflamed by them all day long. As a result, I have daydreamed much of the day away in irresolute dissipation.

Thank goodness I have formed a habit of trying to adhere to my resolves or I would likely never have come to write here and put the brakes n my backsliding.
