This is 如性法师’s sharing:
I would rather learn less, but learn happily
What is the tactic I extracted from here - to realise the importance (and benefits) of the practice and thus the happiness when doing it is easier to generate.
Master Ri-Chang mentioned something along this line in his Lamrim Commentary Track 25A:
My translation: Let the practice be your friend rather than your enemy. When is happening now is that we often view our practice as something we need to fight.
I found the wisdom in it comforting and at the same time motivating!
