Shaping our experience
We are implicated in shaping our experience of life and in our well being. If we are not attentive to this, we might unknowingly be shaping our experience in unskillful ways. As an initial and ongoing personal practice, taking the time to attend to what is arising in our heart and mind, allows a direct view into this process.
Looking at the areas in our life where we are reactive, shut down, or repeatedly lost in thought, can form the basis of this process, and allows a knowing of what we are doing in relation to this shaping. From this, we can more naturally bend towards actions that truly lead to our well being, and the well being of others.
