Simply Love


Don’t expect your spiritual practice
to “cure” you of all your annoying habits.
If anything,
it will throw all of those habits
into sharp relief.
It will intensify
It will heighten
those things about you
that you wish you could change
or disown completely.
Don’t search for a cure, then.
Simply sit and breathe
and love this person that you are,
right now,
neuroses and humanness and all.

    • Do you know the term “maitri”? Unconditional kindness for oneself, like a good friend who knows all about you but loves you anyway–this truly is a beautiful spiritual practice. So happy to see you here Elysha.
