What is earnestness?
It is not distraction.
It is not forgetting.
It is not avoiding spiritual practice.

I have a life that includes a certain set of specifics. Right now there is a job, a house that needs care, a dog, a boyfriend whose interests are world-based, a daughter in college, a friend who craves my attention, and a body I want to care for. Those are the specifics.

Are the specifics distractions?
Do I forget purpose when I am involved with these specifics?
Do I use these specifics to avoid spiritual practice?

If so, that is not earnestness.
If not, earnestness may be present.
