It is the same with my Daily Practice. Stopping to listen to my breath, sitting in stillness, being present to my experience as it unfolds requires a conscious effort. It can be tempting to skip it "just this once" or "come back to it later," and before I know it, the day is gone and the Practice has fallen by the wayside. The Practice facilitates my creativity so I can hear the voice of my soul's longing and manifest that in the world. It empowers me to hold the space I need to bring those things into being. Some days I walk right past that opportunity, as surely as I forget to open the blinds.
