Posted in Tibetan Buddhism, Week in Review

The Week in Review through 12/14/08


Prajna Paramita Practice:  1
Metta: 5


I finally missed a day of meditation, for the first time in almost three months.  My job is definitely wearing on me.  I love it, but there’s just a little too much of it!  I spent all day Friday trying to recover from the week, and then the weekend gets slammed with housework and getting ready for the next week.

Still: there is no guilt in Zen.  Only the awareness that time is precious, so I should use mine wisely.

One good thing: I did Prajna Paramita practice this week.  It was wonderful to be back channeling my inner wisdom goddess!  🙂
