I’m just back from 2 meditation retreats in a row. Aspects of my experience today feel definitely exquisite and lighter than air. The weather helped, a sparkling clear and relatively warm October day. Also meeting a very fun person, Fran Dornelly from St. Lucia who said of the potted sanseveria plants “These are hardy boys”! However, in deeper ways, today was just as confusing as any other day of my adult life. No one inside or outside came to tell me that I made the right or wrong choices with my hours of waking life this day. What if instead of longing for affirmation and certitude, I let go of needing it?
