My grateful post for last week comes a bit late, but better late than never…
I’ve just spent a couple of days at a meditation retreat at Nan Tien Temple.
At the end of the retreat the teacher asked us what we had learned. I didn’t know. I hadn’t come to learn. Well, in a way I had, but I was mainly there because I was longing for some stillness and solitude that would take so much more effort to find at home.
Maybe I’ve taken away something that I’ll be able to apply in my daily life. I hope I have. But right now I’m grateful for the feeling of peace that I’m still carrying with me. Even if I haven’t learned a single thing, this is enough.
