One thing ….

One thing I’ve learnt is that humility leaves room for other possibilities … And I think this holds true in our formal practice of meditation and in the wider context of life. 

The humility to say ‘I’m not sure what I’m doing or if I’m doing what I’m doing the right way’ means there’s openness to other possibilities. It means we can try things and explore and experiment and if we hold this mind-state supported by kindness then we lay the conditions for new growth.

There’s a saying in the meditative tradition ‘In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, in the experts there are none.’

Hope you can meditate with us this week:

Tuesday   6 - 7.30 pm

Sunday     8 - 9 am

On Tuesday Kim has organised someone to come and do some filming to share what we do with a wider number of people - the focus will be pretty much on me leading and meditators in the sit will be mostly in softer, background focus - I’ll announce that to the group to make sure everyone’s okay with that but please come along and support this. 

Much metta to all

Dharmalata and Padmadakini
