We must never become distracted by the external form of spiritual practice and lose sight of its essence – the manifestation of the Mind’s essentially pure, peaceful, awakened nature.
To stay on the right course, we must remind ourselves to return constantly to this basic foundation. Each day is a new beginning, when we alone must decide whether to use our mind to elevate our lives or allow our attachments to create more suffering.
Life is eternal, so our practice is timeless. Make each moment better than what has been, an attainment made possible because the Mind’s creative power never dies.
