WE’RE BACK! We were locked out for unknown reasons, but are now back with you! Very auspicious as this is a most special day – Choekhor Duechen – the day the Buddha first taught after attaining enlightenment. It’s a magnificent time to talk about mind, and our emotions. Sit quietly trying not to engage your senses, ignore what appears to your eyes, ears, nose, tongue, or tactile/touch sense. Just sit quietly with your eyes open glancing down. Eyes open cultivates gradually clarity of mind. At first there is dullness, but with time clarity develops. Be patient. Be diligent and never give up. As clarity develops, you will start to realize the clear nature of the mind. You’ll also experience awareness, the other main quality of mind, which is being and not doing. Gradually you’ll experience both. I AM VERY HAPPY TO BE BACK WITH YOU! Happy Choekhor Duechen.
