Thank you everybody for all of your support!
I just put the costs of a 90-day retreat at GAIA House on my credit card! They gave me the bursary rate, though--the cheapest they can offer. I start on April 1.
Gosh, am I overly reckless? Or am I giving no thought to material wealth? Or both? I feel it's the Dhamma. It's like a high, you know? I can't get enough of it. It might be a subtle clinging to the Dhamma. Ah, it's better than not practicing, I suppose.
Now, it's time to gather resources for the plane ticket....
Do Good, Avoid Evil, Purify the Mind.
