Challenging Times

monks walking

It is easy to be kind in a pleasant situation. Fasting is easy when the stomach is full. Zazen practice seems easier when the heart is calm. But to remain polite during the conflict. To continue fasting when hunger strikes. To sit in Zazen when the heart is restless. These are real challenges and real successes. Because, only the hardest paths can test personal condition and maturity. And only on them is karma purified and character refined.
