Lions Roar : September 2010
SHAMBHALA SUN JULY 2010 49 give us further evidence that we can’t do it. assuming you do get out of bed in the morn- ing, splash cold water on your face, rinse out your mouth, put on some comfortable clothes (or stay in your sleeping clothes if you want), and immediately sit on your cushion. do this before you have coffee, before you turn on the computer, before you activate your day and real- ize you don’t have time for this.
