Commitment isn’t about trying harder or working smarter.
Commitment is not achieved by moving faster
or slower or following whatfeelsright.
The capacity to commit resides
in the capacity of the neutral mind.
There is an aspect of our psyche that is capable of observing thoughts, feelings, and sensations without reacting.
It’s the neutral mind.
The neutral mind is the gateway to tolerance.
Tolerance relaxes the edges of the ego,
making room for new experiences and sensations to emerge.
It is these new experiences and sensations
that grow our capacity.
Greater capacity enables us to have greater agency
with how we direct our choices
and follow through with our commitments.
