The only way to progress by any definition in this life is by first bringing to completion that which is most immediate. To take on or complete that which requires our attention in the moment.
Once we learn to stably regulate our attention, we can be fully present in our joy, compassion, and love; in turn, we can deny oxygen to our anger, anxiety, and self-cherishing. This is the first step towards lasting inner tranquility.
This principle applies in all affairs – in our daily lives, our work and our families as well as in the progress of our days and our families.
Peace and Love, Jim
