    Dear Resistance

    Dear Resistance,
    I am going to sit now. No more surfing the forums. No more procrastination. No more thinking about practice. Time to actually practice. Good bye Resistance. Hello present moment.

    I'm sharing this commitment with the Sangha because resistance is strong for me lately. Knowing that I've made the commitment to myself and the group...having that accountability is a tool I'm using in this moment to help me persevere in my practice today.

    That's great Milarepa!

    I was able to do a full 30 minute sitting. I've been struggling to do a full sitting (or sitting at all) for months. Now I just need to keep the momentum going.

    Bunny I know what you mean; thank you for posting this inspiration. During this weekend's zazenkai, I don't know why, but I thought I was going to crawl out of my skin. hahahahah It was all I could do to just sit there. Some days are just like that, and it's good to hear this type of inspiration.

    Gassho,

    Bunny,

    Let us all sit with you and that resistance and also any resistance that we have. Releasing all hindrances that holds us back.

    Bunny,

    A sitting setback is a setup for a sitting comeback!
