and you reap the benefits of doing it

i’m using this one more now :) It’s my new blog about wellness strategies and my day-to-day self experiments and methods of keeping me at my best via nutrition, practicing Buddhist philosophies, fitness, yoga, and my ever-changing environment. It’s a fledgling blog and I aspire to make it something great!
My work around the issue of aging is to quiet the mind enough—it’s like standing back enough, finding a place to stand where I am not so caught in the culture and caught in a set of attitudes I developed from my childhood, and so on—that I can see what is and respond in a way that is in harmony with way it is, become part of it. Which is the way a bird sings or a river flows or a baby cries.
When you plant lettuce, if it does not grow well, you don’t blame the lettuce. You look for reasons it is not doing well. It may need fertilizer, or more water, or less sun. You never blame the lettuce. Yet if we have problems with our friends or family, we blame the other person. But if we know how to take care of them, they will grow well, like the lettuce. Blaming has no positive effect at all, nor does trying to persuade using reason and argument. That is my experience. No blame, no reasoning, no argument, just understanding. If you understand, and you show that you understand, you can love, and the situation will change.
