The next time you’re doing something like cleaning your car, packing for a trip or just going to the store, see if you can remember to hear that small voice that tells you what you may forget. So often I find that later in the day or week, I remember hearing the words “don’t forget that”, “pick that up”, “write that down” or “take that with you”. Then I think back and realize, if I had really been paying attention, I’d have listened and written it down, picked it up or taken it with me and not forgotten whatever it was. It feels great when you listen to that small voice and really contributes to optimizing each moment and even the future.

You Have What You Need

One definition of an enlightened person is one who always has everything they need. At every moment what they need is there; they’re not seeking anything. If you really are seriously practicing to be free and to simultaneously realize enlightenment, you never seek out of the immediate situation, no matter how bad it is. You transform the immediate situation into what you need.
