We shouldn’t feel that Dharma occurs only when we sit down and meditate. Dharma should be present with us all the time. Dharma should be practiced in everything we do, at all times and in all our actions. Of course, at the moment we can’t act like Milarepa or the Buddha, but at least we can try to be responsible for our own mind. We must try our best not to let the negative mental states develop. We must try to feel more compassion and to develop more bodhichitta. Although we can’t do this immediately, at least we can do whatever we can by doing it everyday, again and again.
