Skill in living our lives,
like athletic or occupational skills,
has to be developed through practice.
We can train ourselves to search within,
questioning the source of our deepest yearnings.
Letting go of all preconceptions,
we can ask ourselves
what is really important to our lives,
what is it that will sustain us
through all forms of adversity.
The times when we feel most restless and lonely are
valuable opportunities to make friends with ourselves,
to find within our own hearts a new depth of understanding.
