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,
Thank you for your practice! And best wishes for your studies.
Tavel safe and many bows for your Dharma activity. I learn much from you..
“buds open to blossom with the purpose of dying to fruit.” So deliciously put and full of many layered wisdom.
Wishing you a fruitful trip in all its parts.
