    Thanks - It's nothing at all!

    Greetings all,

    As I observe the comings and goings of my mind the last few weeks as presented by the opportunities to practice, I wanted to express my gratitude for your presence. I read the posts, observe the conversations, and feel a welcome part of your discussions and explorations. I watched Hans and Jundo sit together today and really felt a part of this fellowship. As I face my life and work to accept all its events and happenings just as they are - our community and practice help me a great deal.

    I smile to myself and offer the appropriate response - "it's nothing!"

    Now I guess I should work not to be attached to this feeling of gratitude, just as I should avoid feelings of aversion!

    Gassho,
    Alex

    Hi Alex,

    Wonderful post. I've felt the same. But because I see the benefits that real gratitute can offer the world, I think it's okay to be a little attached to it! :wink:

    Gassho,
