Buddha often speaks of the middle path. You can think of it as the Goldilocks path — not too hot, not too cold. But this doesn’t just apply to food. It applies to our spiritual path as well. We don’t want to be too lazy and get no results, but we also don’t want to be too rigid so that we either burn out or we become too extreme about it that it becomes detrimental.
In this episode, Todd talks about finally finding his spiritual middle path in a Buddhist monastery in Thailand. On retreat there, he found the perfect balance between rigidity and leniency. It was a beautiful retreat on an island off the coast of Thailand, the living conditions were bare, but the peace and beauty and the birds chirping more than made up for it.
