    Dharma practice is like riding the waves where they settle as the moon and earth rotates with no specific destination.

    Dharma practice is like instantly recognising the truth and then spending weeks trying to put it in practice. The wheels turn slowly.

    at times, like playing piano with huge, edematous fingers (especially in interactions with certain coworkers..."Time to sit back and reflect some on being more understanding and forgiving when I get a few hours free").

    The most important piece of dharma work we do, after all, is not what we do when we are alone, but around others.

    Dharma practice is like being lost in the middle of nowhere, your GPS doesn't work, and you have to rely in a dusty map stuffed in the back seat.

    Dharma practice is like watching people go crazy over the end of the world and you pick up your tea and t.v. guide instead.

    Twas an evening in November,
    As I very well remember
    I was strolling down the street in drunken pride,
    But my knees were all a-flutter,
    So I landed in the gutter,
    Where a pig came up and lay down by my side.

    Yes, I lay there in the gutter,
    Thinking thoughts I could not utter,
    When a colleen passing by did softly say:
    "Ye can tell a man that boozes
    By the company he chooses!'
    And at that, the pig got up and walked away.

    Is Dhamma practice.
