many ways

One of the ways I deal with the stress of the work world is to turn to Buddhism. I subscribe to the Daily Dharma from the good folks at Tricycle. Last week they offered a quote from one of my very favorite Buddhist teachers, Jack Kornfield. He tells us:

There are many ways up the mountain, but each of us must choose a practice that feels true to his own heart. It is not necessary for you to evaluate the practices chosen by others.

That second sentence made me, um, sit up and pay attention.

  1. One of my favorite phrases is ‘different isn’t bad; different is different.’ It’s easy to say ~ and easy to forget. 😉
