The path begins when we have a glimpse of the possibility of transforming our mind. There is a moment when we discover that we can release the mind from its constant preoccupations and subtle existential anxiety. However, the initial inspiration from that glimpse often quickly fades and we are left with the challenge of how to maintain the continuity of meditation practice day in and day out, year after year. Cultivating the source for our motivation and refining the quality of our commitment are the keys in developing an ongoing method for transforming our lives.
