I realized this morning as I sat in meditation (while obviously not doing a good job staying with the theme) that a number of things in my life may be nearing the end of their arcs and that, in many ways, I may simply need to keep trying but make peace with the fact that my efforts may very well come to naught. 

In the spirit of living without the hope of success or even failure and of undertaking courses of action solely because they conduce to my own and others’ long term well-being, I have decided to take part in another online retreat despite the fact that I was a bit overwhelmede by the last one. Maybe it is folly but with so many obstructive forces working against my practice I felt it was a necessity. Wish me luck and every good blessing to all.


  1. As always–and you need to do what you need to do. ciao, ciao, ciao mu

  2. Please be well, friend.
