I need to take my practice off the cushion.
To some extent, this happens without any special effort on my part. I listen more to others now than I used to. I am (I think) more sensitive to others’ feelings. My feelings of anger last for shorter and shorter periods. I am less wrapped up in me.
But am I mindful in every moment? No. Not even close.
Moreover, I do not often do things that are solely for the benefit of others. Sure, I do things that are good for others, but a lot of these are just part of my job, or everyday things that I always did.
Don’t worry — I’m not creating new suffering over this. But it’s in my mind more and more.
