Whenever you’re trying to do something big, like get a project off the ground, or lose weight, or quit an addiction, or shift the way you relate to someone, it helps to remember that you can get there with small steps.
Working on your project every day after your regular work, will get you closer.
Resisting wine or sugar or porn or whatever your addiction is, just for one day, will get you closer.
Being kind to someone you have trouble relating to, will get you closer.
We sometimes think we have to leap from Point A to Point B, when we’ve only just started out.
But all it really takes is small steps, one after another.
You can even go off the path now and then, or take a break and get back on it.
With small steps over time, you can look up one day and see that Point B is much closer than it ever has been.
This lifetime, it's not a race. Many of our understandings, perhaps even most of them, won't even arrive to us in this lifetime. We many need many, many lifetimes to get to Point B.
The idea is to see how far we can get.
Big steps, small steps... it doesn't matter. Just keep walking the path.
