One area where I am in need of having a better practice is when it comes to generosity. All of the rest of my practice – introspection, mindfulness, study of the dharma, etc – is all crap unless it ends up with a greater level of generosity and compassion. This is the dharma.
There have been times when I am there; when being generous was natural and done without thought. And without being spoken about. Just done.
But other times…I am too worried about my time, my to do list, my judgment, my notion about you to allow generosity to flow.
So I bring this back to the focus and remind myself and at some point perhaps it will be just a part of me instead of something I strive for.
