Practice What You Study/Study What You Practice…

I was reading a post from the Dalai Lama recently on practice and study. I believe it was in reference to Buddhism, but it can be applied to just about everything.

For example a gym rat, someone who’s in the gym constantly working out (practitioner) vs. a fitness geek who has all the statistical analysis for each machine but seldom works out (Student).  Both only have a partial view of the whole picture.

We can say the same for ourselves, many of us are trying to find our way through various modalities such as therapy, and religion. While many of us just go on with the business of life. Living every day doing the same thing the same way and hoping things will change.

Life and finding our way is like everything else, it’s all a balancing act! We need to find our fulcrum point  where we can grow from who we are and with what we’ve learned… We can’t be whole or find peace until we put into practice what we know…
