Reading from Class: Gelek Rimpoche
“Everyone experiences discomfort. Even when you are just sitting still, doing nothing, you may still feel aches and pains. And even if you don’t, if everything is fine right now, you may still recall past slights and get stuck in a bad memory, or find yourself experiencing fear of the future. When we relive the past and worry about the future, we miss out on our life.” — Gelek Rimpoche, quoted by Cyndi Lee in her great book May I Be Happy.
Through practice we become present again and again. By connecting to breath we are able to find space from the unfriendly business upstairs, engage fully in the moment and practice living.
