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.

Subtle Actualization?




This week when I did my gassho, entering my little homemade zendo, I noticed my breath from my nose on the tips of my fingers. Then I noticed my lips against the sides of my fingers. I immediately felt the intimacy in that. It felt "precious". That was the word that bubbled up in that moment.

All week now I have had the same experience in my bowing.

Bowing while entering, bowing to the altar, bowing to the cushion:

Intimacy, intimacy, intimacy.

Precious moment, precious moment, precious moment.

Bows,
Alan
