Hey I just wanted to say thank you to all you masters and neophytes.
Buddha dharma is amazing and so clearly the most profound thing I have ever studied/practiced/read about/incorporated into my life.
Not to say it's easy! It's not a path for those wanting an easy way out, but I sincerely feel it to be a truthful understanding of our present condition and what we can do to remedy it.
It's one thing to see that it's true, or at least a little true, and want to investigate, and ask people and talk about it. It's a whole 'nother thing to undergo the training yourself.
On top of that, most of us have to "juggle" dharma and "life" which makes it doubly tricky! Yet, it can be done! I mean, you gotta step back and focus on each part in its own light, and weave them together, but some practice is better than none.
So thanks to all of you undergoing your own training for the benefit of the world and all beings,
and thanks to all of you undergoing training even in environments where others are not. This training is amazing indeed.
Stay vigilant, stay strong, and stay cheery my brothers and sisters.
With love and gratitude and some gooey feelings that will just go as "joy,"
