My first day of service.
in a Vipassana meditation centre near Barcelona.
Its true, I havent ever volunteered to nothing,
in my entire life.
Yeah, it feels good.
So damn peaceful here :)
In Barcelona I felt like a Zen-master amidst the roaring frantic city.
..But here, in a pastoral natural place near Mont Seny- which means in Castdaian ¨The mountain of wisdom.¨ - I feel like a crazed baboon.
Well, its all relative I guess, and some of that wisdom from that mountain oughta rub on to me.
Yeah, and Im giving service to the one thing I truly believe in- this path, the Dhamma which gives me so much..
It gave me so much that it made me come out of that little shell of mine and wanna do good to others - how great is that?
Makes me face same old demons - and on top of them all, a time schedule which makes me face my worst enemy: Mr. Clock. (aaahhhh!!!)
So, Im here for awhile --- and Im gonna go meditate cause I might as well make use of this time.
This precious time.
....A week has past, and Im still here.
Theres a huge thunder storm outside - makes me feel excited. makes me feel safe.
I feel so fullfilled, so satisfied - like Ive never felt before..
This is why Im alive - to grow, to give, to face the difficulties, to be surrounded by people who love and inspire and support me..
..I wish I could share this - but that's the thing with words, they dont really get there...
...So, Ill send you all a wordless moment of truth - and pray for the healing of us all.
