Inner development comes step by step. You may think, “Today my inner calmness, my mental peace, is very small,” but still, if you compare, if you look five, ten, or fifteen years back, and think, “What was my way of thinking then? How much inner peace did I have then and what is it today?”– comparing it with what it was then, you can realize that there is some progress, there is some value…. Progress comes by maintaining constant effort in daily practice.
H. H. the Dalai Lama, from Kindness, Clarity, and Insight

    Thank you for this lovely reminder. We can be so hard on ourselves sometimes. It is nice to take time and reflect on our progression as we continue to work with our daily practices
