Wise Effort

Marcia Rose talks about the 3rd factor of enlightenment: wise effort. Wise effort is so intricate to energy, i.e., ever present in every mental activity.

There seems to be a constant hum of activity in the majority of our lives. Even when we find physical stillness at the end of a long day, the mind often continues to race. Thoughts about things we should have done differently or fears we may have about things to come. They flood us without us being consciously aware of it. Many of these thoughts replay through our subconscious mind and so they go largely undetected.

Relaxation is not something we attain with wise effort, or figure out how to ‘get’; it is a way of being we practice coming into again and again. Over time, relaxation comes more effortlessly as we learn to embody mindfulness as a way of being. Through these mindfulness relaxation exercises and whatever other techniques we find work for us, we move deeper into an inner foundation of peace, harmony, and tranquility.
