Fulfill Your Potential
Attachment to particular outcomes prevents us from fulfilling our potential.
~Yogacharya Ellen Grace O'Brian
A steady meditation practice makes us very aware of the contents of our mind. It also permits us to affect what happens there and reach a better level of control over our actions in the world. The concentration practices of meditation help us set worthy goals and then we develop an enhanced relationship to the outcomes of our actions. Paradoxically we gain a new freedom when we learn we do not have control over these outcomes. When things go as planned, we can take this in stride and when things do not, we can be ready to learn from the feedback which the universe has provided. We fulfill our potential when we learn from both success and failure.
