Our « fifth day » is coming to an end for me here in Montreuil.
We had our usual evening sitting at the Red Earth Centre and much lively discussion. I noticed that I was much less tired than usual on Friday nights.
Seems I’m energized by this retreat. Not surprising.
We’ve all been delving into our lives entirely, tasting all the diversity (the « world » of form) but with an eye to life’s oneness, things just as they are, no distinctions (the « world » of emptiness). Which is already a deep practice. And then we’ve been sharing with each other, witnessing not only our own life but the lives of others, opening to people and places we may not even know.
Having dropped our ideas about connection, we’ve seen that we are all connected.
