I haven't practiced sitting meditation much this week. I became too goal oriented...I started grasping at the concept of if I sit, I will receive. So I let go. I am constantly practicing the art of letting go. As Thai would say to be like a pebble steadily falling to the bottom of a river bed. I work at a grocery store as a cashier. Its easy work and the mind can easily wander if not careful. I find it a good place to practice. People come through my line and they are in all sorts of moods.
When I first started there it would get to me these people. Their expectations, demands and their personalities would get to me and it would become overwhelming. Since i began practicing I've noticed that it is I who is overwhelming for them. When I find my self present and able to practice loving kindness and compassion I am able to mend a lot of customers suffering about why their sugar isn't on sale, haha.
