Why do we start sitting? And what keeps us sitting now.? How important is faith in the beginning of one's practice? What could one possibly wish to attain from this practice? I'm really an interesting specimen. I guess my personality had something to do with my persistence in practice, thanks for that. How often we mistaken the hand for the moon. How are we expected to see the moon right away? Where does this continuous labor of getting on the cushion come from? I don't really know if I would be sitting as often as I do if I didn't have this place. Strange.
