The magnanimous mind invites us to take a wider perspective rather than getting constantly bogged down in the minutiae of everyday life.
There is no doubt that meditation is not always enjoyable.
‘If we’re not careful, it is all too easy to fall into becoming more of a human doing than a human being.’
‘Be patient toward all that is unresolved in your heart
And try to love the questions themselves.’
‘Who or what we are is defined by the quality of our engagement with this moment, whatever its content.’
‘The obstacle is the path.’ Zen saying
When we reflect on the expectations we have of ourselves, we might notice that we often tend to set the bar pretty high.
Sometimes, a small adjustment can make quite a difference to our lives in the long term.
There are countless ways we can be nourished during a day.
When we’re stressed, we can often feel as if we’re being hemmed in from all sides.
