Loving Your Mess
Transformative practice and meditation can quickly devolve into an anxiety-ridden attempt at trying to correct our countless flaws, vices and character defects. It doesn’t need to be this way.
Suzuki Roshi’s quip to his students beautifully captures the paradoxical spirit of transformation: “Each of you is perfect the way you are, and you can use a little improvement.”
At the next Lower Lights gathering, we will explore how touching into our underlying perfection can actually relieve the intense pressure we often feel to improve ourselves. Ultimately we find that when we can really love our mess, we’re a lot less messy in the world.
