“The foundation of the Buddha’s teachings lies in compassion, and the reason for practicing the teachings is to wipe out the persistence of ego, the number-one enemy of compassion.”
–Tenzin Gyatso, The 14th Dalai Lama
We sold our restaurant to a great guy, and we’re so happy and grateful we did. As with every experience in our lives, we asked ourselves, “What’s the lesson here? What do we need to learn? What do we need to do differently?”
Stress can be insidious, so I believe it’s best to stay in tune and aware in order to nip it in the bud.
“But wait,” you say. “You practice yoga every day, and you were unaware of the stress the restaurant was causing you, Sister?”
