Meditation Poem Series: #53

Life definitely full. Grateful for meditation practice. I am listening to a podcast called On Being with Krista Trippet, where she interviews Matthieu Ricard. Ricard is a scientist turned Tibetan monk, who is very involved in collaborating with scientists with researching effects of meditation on the brain. I am paraphrasing, but at point he talked about cultivating kindness and compassion as something we can learn to do, same as other skills we can develop as adults like learning a new route, a new song, or training our bodies. I found his ideas thought provoking, and also encouraging to keep sitting.
