The more we practice, the softer we become

The more we practice, like kneading dough, the softer we become. We are working out the impurities and roughness. This softness is forgiveness. This softness is kindness. This softness is love, towards ourself and others. This softness is grace. We start living more of our life in grace. Gratitude is the overarching 5-color rainbow light. This softness is insight. Everything begins to sparkle along with the hum of bliss. Then we overeat, oversleep, become lazy and slovenly. Again, we practice. Once again, forgiveness dawns. Grace dawns. Kindness dawns. Insight dawns. Love dawns. Again, things begin to sparkle and hum with bliss. Like this we alternate until one day we will finally embrace and internalize fully the precious dharma.
