We can always return to the practice. The practice never leaves us; we can only leave it. And even if we do it will always be there ready to be picked up. There will be no hard feelings or judgments, and once you are back or you will wonder why you ever left.
The practice is life. The practice is what affirms and guides.
If the pen has been put down and the page left blank, pick it up and find yourself home in the practice once again.
