Are you diligent in your spiritual practice?
Are you putting your priority in your spiritual practice?
If yes, do you ever think about “is it any improvement in your spiritual practice? How’s your progress?”
I recalled a very touching and profound conversation between Master Sheng Yen and his disciple.
Disciple: “Sifu, How is my progress in the spiritual path?”
Master Sheng Yen: ” Are you happy? Are your people surrounding happy?”
Simple answer yet so profound!
Contemplate about it!
If in our daily life we can smile, if we can be peaceful and happy, not only we, but everyone will profit from it. This is the most basic kind of peace work
