My first day of year five with Khen Rinpoche has been quite exhausting and astonishing; as if my inner ear can suddenly hear new sounds and nuances. . . so even if I prickle a bit at the Tibetan language, some deeper truth is coming through. . . some higher heart-mind cuts through to a core that is crystal clear. And, in this core, I contact a knowing and a longing that feels more strongly pure.
Saying good night, with a bit of a blush, I must acknowledge that the ‘struggle and the bow’, i.e., my receptivity and my resistance are snuggled sweetly together and the tension is gone. Ahhhh, however it has happened, may mercy allow it to continue to be so.
Wishing for all of us awakening dreams tonight and tomorrow.
