Dose of Daily Rage

Daily Draw: Lojong for the Layperson ~ Slogan 51
"this time practice the main points"

Of the three, Bodhichitta snags my brain this morning. As I go through life working on being a better person than I was yesterday and the days before, how am I actually doing it? Better is a nebulous word...I know what I don't do, but what are my do? Haven't a clue.

Bodhichitta would like me to transform rigidity of don't do into a softness of practicing an all compassing gentle spirituality. It has been two years since I started reading the  morning train wreck called the news again. Yesterday I disappeared  my news page. I don't need a dose of daily rage. Or the daily heartbreak of humans out of control. Practicing peace in the morning...what a concept.
