    Dharma in thunder, in rain... everywhere. That's why I sit.

    Thank you, Taigu.

    Gassho,

    Actually, Brother Jundo, the funny thing is that my tokudo name , tetsu ten, means lightening...

    Lovely...truly heartfelt words. Thank you for being patient with us. You may not need the title, but you embody the word "teacher".

    a humble thank you,

    THank you. I really needed to hear that today. During the talk I kept thinking, "yes, but.." I'm right, or I should be taken seriously. But that is a burden. Although I am right in the situation I'm currently in, from a factual, scientific perspective, I've stated my case. Now I have to drop that burden. But of course, the chatter just keeps going on and on in my head. hahhaha

    Gassho,
