Thought of the day

Ok, since you have been suffering through my whining, I thought that sharing a thought for today would be apporpriate. I get these thoughts of the day from a buddhist based service and they are always inspiring to me........here is one for today.........

When little obstacles crop up on the spiritual path, a good practitioner does not lose faith and begin to doubt, but has the discernment to recognize difficulties, whatever they may be, for what they are—just obstacles, and nothing more. It is the nature of things that when you recognize an obstacle as such, it ceases to be an obstacle. Equally, it is by failing to recognize an obstacle for what it is, and therefore taking it seriously, that it is empowered and solidified and becomes a real blockage.
