The summer days
For those who have a regular, sometimes really important, rooted in their everyday life, practice, you need to know today that you are responsible for much more than you think.
It is hard to know what will happen in our life, our travels and our evolution in our professions... You can not really say what you will do in 10 or 20 years.
If you carry a tradition with you, of which you have a direct experience through your personal practice and an understanding through your study and your exchanges with your practice "colleagues", you can be the vehicle at one time or another of a branch of your tradition.
Simply put, it is important to practice primarily to solve what we want to clarify, but we also become responsible for the manual, the technique, the tradition that offers all that.
It is important to understand how lucky we are having this burden, and I'm not exaggerating at all, but we carry with us a piece of the puzzle that builds the world of tomorrow. We have within us, and available for others one day, a tool for the evolution of the human being and his liberation.
Wether this puzzle piece is used or not at the moment, we are in an active movement in the construction of human consciousness ... Isn't that better than a home loan plan or stock market shares? It is not an exaggeration and it was proved in the history of our lineage: some informations have sometimes survived by improbable and unexpected vehicles which were not part of the initial plan.
It is important to be aware of one's importance and the impact of one's actions: when you give a book about the Way, when you say good or bad things about it, when you do what you do, you have a direct influence on your world, which is also mine!
There are no accidents, we are responsible for what we do and we are the actors of our life... or we have to become all that quickly (see the text "happy idiot" )
Let's accept the responsibility that we bear in the world, let's commit even more in a local and global action, let's share this deep research that builds human consciousness and let's stop thinking that only the others bear this responsibility.
This could warm your summer up.
