“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

I just found you all...I am going on my first 10 day beginning tomorrow in Minnesota. Thank you all for your support- every question that I had was answered here. I've taught Yoga for many years and dabbled in meditation-This for me is my next step on this journey...I've always pulled back...but as they say- "When the student is ready..."
Blessings to you all. :anjali:
