“What are the signs of progress? Our body, speech, and mind become more gentle. At times we are able to bear difficulty without complaint. We might even begin to welcome chaos as an opportunity to engage in patience, generosity, discipline, meditation, exertion, and their binding factor, prajna – wisdom rooted in seeing things as they are. When we consider chaos good news, whatever comes our way – good or bad – has less power to obstruct our journey.”
