I PRACTICE MINDFULNESS WITH EACH MORSEL, EACH BITE, EACH BREATH – Day 29: March 12, 2020

Your practice must be made to apply
to your everyday living situation.
That is your laboratory.
It provides the trials and challenges you need
to make your practice deep and genuine.
It’s the fire that purifies your practice
of deception and error,
the acid test that shows you
when you are getting somewhere
and when you are fooling yourself.
If your meditation isn’t helping you to cope
with everyday conflicts and struggles,
then it is shallow.
If your day-to-day emotional reactions
are not becoming clearer and easier to manage,
then you are wasting your time.
And you never know how you are doing
until you actually make that test.
The practice of mindfulness
is supposed to be a universal practice.
You don’t do it sometimes
and drop it the rest of the time.
You do it all the time.

Henepola Gunaratana, from Mindfulness in Plain English
