Day 22

21 meetings. Went to church for the first time in awhile. Was frustrating. My pride was kindled. So many distractions from the Tao in my mind. I had to go outside and sit under a tree. I watched and listened to the birds and felt the breeze and the sun on my face. There is no greater sermon.

"By emulating the Master, who endured temptations but “gave no heed unto them,” we, too, can live in a world filled with temptations “such as [are] common to man”. Of course Jesus noticed the tremendous temptations that came to him, but He did not process and reprocess them. Instead, He rejected them promptly. If we entertain temptations, soon they begin entertaining us! Turning these unwanted lodgers away at the doorstep of the mind is one way of giving “no heed.” Besides, these would-be lodgers are actually barbarians who, if admitted, can be evicted only with great trauma."

— Neal A. Maxwell
