Cultivating a Heart Unshaken
When we encounter difficulties, we can be tempted to lose heart and imagine that something is wrong. In our spiritual practice, however, we are invited to see and to deeply investigate these moments as blessings and powerful learning opportunities. The Dharma guides us to cultivate wholesome attitudes: qualities of mind and heart that support our opening to change and challenge as wonderful and happy practice. With these, we are able to discover ever deeper and more creative possibilities, developing steadfast and peace-filled presence in our relations with our internal and external worlds.
