I just read in a Craniosacral Biodynamics book that one of the author’s mentors enjoyed lying on the couch, despite being 33 years old. When the author confronted his mentor about this activity, the lounger responded, [paraphrasing] “I have frazzled every wire, exhausted every sinew and burnt out every fuse. There is nothing else to do.” Whoa! Finally someone is on the same page as me.
Really there is not much more to say… So I’m getting ready for graduation, throwing a little shindig and then prepping for Spring Retreat at the Tibetan Meditation Center (yes, this is turning into quite the tradition – this is my sixth year in a row). Nubpa Rinpoche, a recognized master from Drikung Til in Tibet is teaching and giving some rare blessing ceremonies (empowerments). Plus the resident lamas are teaching, so it is a time of great virtue and merit. Generally I do a little volunteering, attend most of the teachings and enjoy a peaceful time. Here’s hoping it stays that way! 🙂
This summer I am intending to study more Tibetan (language) and slowly learn more about literary (Classical) Tibetan – the textual tradition.
Within all of this, I intend to rest down much further than ever, to see clients and to practice speaking Tibetan. And that is it [period]. Time to recover – these circuits are fried, these bones are tired. My aspiration is to rest down until effort is easy and effortless. So if you know me, don’t be too surprised if I say no right off the bat – “No! Gotta rest, maybe next time.” Hooray!
