As I observe the comings and goings of my mind the last few weeks as presented by the opportunities to practice, I wanted to express my gratitude for your presence. I read the posts, observe the conversations, and feel a welcome part of your discussions and explorations. I watched Hans and Jundo sit together today and really felt a part of this fellowship. As I face my life and work to accept all its events and happenings just as they are - our community and practice help me a great deal.
I smile to myself and offer the appropriate response - "it's nothing!"
Now I guess I should work not to be attached to this feeling of gratitude, just as I should avoid feelings of aversion!
