Manure of Experience

There is no expectation that our lives will be all resolved and perfect now or at some future point.

Our lives, if we are honest, are filled with all kinds of experiences, all kinds of unresolved experiences.

This is the very rich manure that we have to work with here and now. This is our practice. After I meditate, there is the rest of my life-the post meditation part.  That is the largest part of my life. I get to see how I’m putting the teachings into action.

At the end of the day, I can honestly evaluate how I did and be grateful that I’m trying to be the real honest to goodness me.
