Lions Roar : March 2009
SHAMBHALA SUN MArcH 2009 21 we steadfastly move forward; we’re not afraid of giving up territory or taking a leap. Fearlessness has a decisive element, too: at some point we can respond to a situation with a simple “yes” or “no”—the “maybes” go out the door. With fearlessness comes awareness. no longer cloaked in habitual pattern, no longer using hope and fear to manipulate the environment, we are aware of what’s happening in our life. We have more en- ergy because we’re not burdened by trying to maintain the concept and polarity of “me.” Our practice becomes more three- dimensional. The last entry on this list is a sense of hu- mor. I haven’t met any great practitioner who didn’t have a good sense of humor. It’s a sign of pliability and intelligence. Who wants to be a brow-heavy practi- tioner, squinting hard as we try to push out realization? With a dharmic eye, we’re able to see things with some levity because we’re connected to our wholesomeness. each morning we can choose one of these elements as a daily contemplation and practice. Throughout the day, we can train ourselves to bring the mind to “egolessness,” “faith,” or “gentleness”—as words, then actions. In the evening, we can take a moment before going to sleep and reflect on what happened: “How did I use this day to nurture my mind and heart?” Training to increase our dharmic ha- bitual tendencies is a perpetual source of inspiration and strength that provides a standard for decision-making at every level. It’s how we become perpetually forward-thinking, visionary people who can use every situation as an opportunity to cross over from the transcendent to the practical—and back. ♦ In the evening, we can take a moment before going to sleep and reflect on what happened: “How did I use this day to nurture my mind and heart?” D� ��� ���� lea��ng ed�� �����s t� �egoti�t� t�� ch��l�nges ��� �ac�?
