Ten years ago I decided on a base mission for my life, to relieve the most amount of suffering possible, practicing compassion indiscriminately and without judgement for myself and others, and focusing on that suffering which I’m most able to relieve, even if that means mostly focusing on my own suffering first.
Since then I have developed these practices as a way to interrupt thinking and feeling patterns that I’m attempting to change, as a way to remind myself that I’m a peaceful and caring person, even when my thoughts and feelings would have me thinking otherwise, and as a way to better understand and tend to the relationships in my life.
For 2021, I’m publishing a variety of material, including my story on what drove me to these practices. Sharing my practices with others is the first step towards publishing my ideas, articles and books for 2021. The practices are my most practical and useful self-created knowledge that I can share.
Thank you for practicing with me,
