Your Daily Practice
The first thing that will happen when you try to get up in the early morning is you will feel like sleeping just a little bit more. But why would you want to follow your feelings if your feelings aren't following something that's exalted? So number one, you're going to wake up in the morning even though you're not going to feel like doing it. How could this possibly be worth it? Because the clarity and compassion you can foster will carry you through life in the sweetest way. And any amount of depression you sense can be lifted. Your practice will give you the tools to rise and prosper, to surrender and serve, to give and receive gracefully. Your practice gives you your highest self…give yourself to your practice…every morning.
