I'm practising to be charmed by inconsistency in people, including myself. Although I try to walk a steady path, wandering off track points the way to my connection with all people, all things. Learning to accept inconsistency, viewing inconsistency as flow increases compassion. It allows for change and growth.
One of the exercises I practise when I sit in spinning meditation is "Getting Into the Zone." I focus attention on the drafting zone, the small triangle seated between the yarn just formed and the fibre which will form the yarn to follow. The drafting zone is my "Now," so to speak. By keeping full attention there, I remind myself to stay present. When I stay in the Now, the yarn takes care of itself.
An Irish Buddhist blessing:
May you be happy.
May you be well.
May you be in heaven a half hour before the devil knows you're dead.
Happy April Fool's Day!
