Very nice video. I struggle with the whole unscheduled time thing. My life Monday thru Friday is super busy...I feel like I need to have a busy schedule on weekends.

A teaching from my school that I like is "Sealing appearances." You go throughout your day seeing everything as part of the extension of viewing things with the view of a practitioner.

Nothing really unusual about that, I'm sure that's what we're all supposed to be doing. I try be conscious of it, as well as the four times of day to practice: Dawn, Day, Dusk and Nightime.
