At the Mani Drupchen, I had plenty of time to think about my New Year’s resolutions and my provocative statement to hold in my heart throughout this coming year. I am not sure what day it was, but I came up with a sentence that I feel is quite potent. I was pondering the states of compassion and kindness which seemed to arise while in retreat. I wanted to be able to sustain that level of potency even when I left retreat, but judging from previous experience, I was not sure I could handle this tall order.
Therefore, my provocative statement for this new year is along the lines of: May (I and) all sentient beings pierce the veils of ignorance which obscure the flow of limitless compassion (ASAP).
There you go! For me, that is at least a year long process, heh… Actually it is probably a 5,000 lifetime goal but I am slowly working on it.
