It would seem the Buddha Dharma continues to penetrate the very fabric of society... ...Where seeds of Awakening are being sown...No doubt some seeds will fall by the wayside, some will reach fertile ground....
When the pupil is ready...The Master will appear
From what "I" gather....
Self Pity reinforces a sense of self that's separate from others .... (It's all about "me"..."Why me???")
Self Pity = Clinging to
However developing Self Compassion is more inclusive .....(It doesn't shut others out)....
Self Compassion = Letting go
So I would think it's more a matter of "The Importance Of Self Pity Compassion"
Would you say your practice gets easier with age?
As we practice we age, and the saying goes "Practice makes Perfect" ...so in theory, yes it should....
"With age comes Wisdom-but sometimes age comes alone "
And so if one's practice is somewhat haphazard ...then perhaps not....( well not any easier) Like with many ventures We tend to reap what we sow
