Comforting Thought: The seat at the head of your table

Reflexion by Odilon Redon

Self-actualisation is not a sudden happening, or even a permanent result of long-effort. The eleventh-century Tibetan Buddhist poet-saint Milarepa suggested: “Do not expect full realisation, simply practice every day of your life”. A healthy person is not perfect but perfectible, not a done deal but a work in progress. Staying healthy requires discipline, work, and patience, which is why our life is a journey and perforce a heroic one.
