I am listening to a Dharma talk, as I am now in my Bhuddist phase. Actually, I shouldn't be doing ths - unmindfully writing to you whilst listening. And it's great listening:I want to write it down before I forget.
You have to yield, meet yourself and the cosmos with a kind heart. Hold yourself in love. Keep softening to the present.
Dunno if I'm ever going to get Enlightened, but those minutes I spend not putting myself and the rest of you to rights, are helping me to see better, feel more, laugh a lot ( at myself, mostly) and meet that which is hard, with a deep breath and an unlikely optimism.
