Everything in life is a practice. The more you do something the easier it becomes. Think about driving a car. When a person first learns to drive, they have to really focus on the steps; hands at 10 & 2, check mirrors, turn key, put car in gear, etc. Now as an adult you jump in the car and go. That's because the person has done the steps enough times that they are now what we call embodied. The practice has percolated down from the head into the tissues of the body just like rain water falling on grass goes down into the soil.
Unfortunately this same process is at work with practices that don't serve us; alcoholism, hot temper, and time on the Internet to name a few. And we have a choice to do that practice or not. It might be challenging to change and it can be done. All it takes in practice. What are you practicing and is it serving you?
