A travel day today. The next two weeks are going to be hectic with retreats, mini-vacation, and the Chaplaincy. I’ve lined up the 108buddhas and some pictures of the gardens. If there is time, I’ll share reflections as I can or even upload some pictures from Upaya.
In the meantime, as I sit through airports and cramped planes, trying to manage the anxieties of leaving home, being receptively attentive, and letting go of old stories, I will be reminding myself that buds open to blossom with the purpose of dying to fruit.
Thank you for practicing,
