Monk In The World

To be a monk is to have time to practice for your transformation and healing. And after that to help with the transformation and healing of other people.

"Intimate knowing"

Looking forward to wading through the dharma this week with this "intimate knowing." I know in my spiritual journey the "idea" of "intimacy" has been a big carrot. I have said in the past that our longing for "God", "Truth", "Reality" is one and the same with our longing for intimacy. Then again this "longing" is grasping and this grasping leads to suffering? Maybe this "intimate knowing" is just letting go and letting things be what they are. Then again, things are what they are whether we let go or not.

Maybe the writer of The Cloud of Unknowing can give us some dharma hints?

Be Intimate with life this week!
