    timeposts

    Hellos to all

    A long time goes between posts sometimes

    Sometimes in my posts I refer back to different periods of time in my life, in sitting....

    It occurred to me that some may take this as a bragadoccio (sp?) kind of thing

    Nothing could be farther from the truth: the passage of time does not involve any special skill

    When it comes to sitting zazen, all that was required was that I started, and once started, I continued (sure fallow periods arose, but then I started again and continued).

    For many people sitting zazen is a life-long practice. I don't know how long my life will be, but it is my practice.

    I am lucky to have a sangha to sit with close to where I live, and lucky to have a forum to visit no matter where I am.

      Hello Jundo

      I have always felt welcome as a guest/visitor here at the Treeleaf Forum.

      I don't think of myself as a sangha member of Treeleaf--I don't watch the sit-a-longs, I don't participate in any of the many events or book club etc. I just drop in from time to time to the forum.

      All the world's a sangha, true, true. I am still lucky to sit with a sangha close to where I live and I am still lucky to be a guest/visitor of the forum here.

      Thank you and Taigu and one and all for your hospitality!
