Keeping up a practice

For a little inspiration on keeping up your practice read the story of the Three Meditating Monks.

Three Monks are meditating silently in a cave.  A year passed.  They remained silent sitting and meditating.

A few more months pass by and there’s a noise outside the cave.

Six months of silence follows and the first Monk says: Did you hear that goat?

A year of silence follows when the second Monk says: That wasn’t a goat. It was a cow.

Two years later the third Monk says: “If there is going to be any bickering, I am leaving.  You are disturbing my silence!”
