The one thing we have to do is some kind of practice every day. Even as little as 5 minutes of practice a day can be life changing over time. It opens our hearts and awareness from within, allowing us to let go of superficial things and rest more easily in ourselves. It’s the only way to know anything that really matters—the only way to get to shore as we find ourselves headed for the rapids. A teacher can point the way, but we have to do the practice.
