Being of Benefit

The more we practise,
the more we benefit,
the more we want to practise,
the more others benefit,
the more we practise.

Practice is taming the mind, and the benefit is insight. We have to be careful when revealing insights to others to avoid appearing odd, as this can cause uncertainty in the Dharma, and in us. Our practice will then be doing harm. Once others receive the wrong impression, this uncertainty sticks! First impressions count.

Note to self:
Insight is the natural outcome of practice and of having received teachings.
It is our wealth. Be careful how the wealth is spent. 😀
