Retreat Countdown: 14 Days...and my practice sucks!
I'm somewhat dismayed at this time. My meditation practice has been almost non-existent. This knee-thing has been a much larger obstacle than it should be. Perhaps I'm clinging to it as an excuse to not sit? Maybe I've gotten back into a morning pattern which does not support my practice? That seems more likely. It always seems like I'm running late when I'm not getting up any later.
I had all these lofty ideas and goals to "prepare" for this retreat. I was going to keep losing weight. I was going to stop drinking sodas and eating sugar. I was going to sit for 45-minutes each morning and each night.
As I take another slug of my Pepsi and finish off that last cookie, I realize I've been sitting for at least 45-minutes each night - just in front of my computer!
There's never a better time to start than now...
