Day 317 – Train Tracks

November 11, 2012


“In tough times, it’s tempting to comfort ourselves with junk food and other junk pleasures. We turn to alcohol, sweets, TV, shopping: quick ways to turn off mindfulness of our pain. But like a firm mother, the Buddha would guide us (gently, sure, always gently, but still firmly) away from these distractions. As a mother would care for her only child, so should we care for ourselves.” (Franz Metcalf and BJ Gallagher, Being Buddha at Work, 2012)
