A student shares the challenges he's facing having his family understand and respect his choice to pursue the dharma and dedicate time for practice.
And this is a challenge that all of us face. Anytime that we're trying to take up anything new in general, let alone while we’re trying to set up Dharma practice, right and carving out, let alone time to come sangha on Wednesday night - let alone time to practice at home. Let alone time to dedicate for reading Dharma texts. For studies.
Some of the biggest challenges that you will face is from your own family. From the people you love. You're going to start to see the people that do not respect your practice. That do not believe that it is worthy, that it's more worthy for you to binge watch Netflix for the night and to be there for that binge watch than it is to come here for two hours or listen to dharma talks or meditate. This is a fact. This is going to be what we're going to face.
There's gonna be people in our lives that put down the practice, right? Make fun of it. Get in our face about the practice, right?
This episode will help you know what to do when you get resistance from your family and friends about your practice and they don't value the dharma like you do.
