    FSR: sitting alone ?

    twice a day i sit in the FSR. In the morning somewhere between 10 and 11 am CET and in the evening, somewhere between 11 and 12 pm CET. Most of the times i sit there alone. But somehow it does not feel alone. Alone is not alone but all one..

    Often i do on sunday a volunteers job on a place without wifi. So i sit at 15 pm CET with you all, but not in de SSR. Same thing: alone but not alone, all one..

    every morning i take refuse in the buddha, the dharma and the sangha and part of that sangha are you guys in this world wide treeleaf zendo. Thanks for that!!

    when you click on Treeleaf NOW you'll come on a place with three tabs on the top. One of them is rooms. When you click that one, you'll see three rooms. One of these is the Free Sitting Room, a room where you can always enter to sit. Some times you will be the only one, sometimes others are there.

    Hah! This reminds me of the time I was invited as a guest teacher at one of them Secondlife Zazenkai, talking the Dharma to a group of pandas, unicorns and space creatures sitting Zazen. They made me look like this, which is who I am inside all the wrinkles I guess ... complete with 6-Pack Abs under those robes.

    I have sat in the FSR a few times (including this evening!) and try to do so when possible. So far I believe I have been "alone" in there, but it feels qualitatively different to sitting solo/offline. I'm very grateful for this resource!

    Always connected, with or without the internet, words, text or sound.

    Great support can be gained by sitting quietly amongst friends.

    Would I need zoom or another app to connect there? I had all but forgotten it existed as I used it some time ago.

    Maybe I can sit with you folks in the mornings.
