In about three hours, I'll be hopping on a red truck to Wat Phra That Doi Suthep. Doi Suthep is located in the mountains overlooking the city of Chiang Mai. In fact, I have a great view of the wat from my balcony. I took this picture this morning - if you look closely, it's in the upper right-hand part of the picture frame, just to the left of the radio towers.
I've spent a lot of time looking up at Doi Suthep these past few days. It's definitely beckoning to me...welcoming my imminent arrival. A number of you have asked me what I expect to get from this experience
So I plan to arrive at Doi Suthep with an open heart and mind, ready to embrace whatever comes my way. I'm grateful that I've had the past few months to focus on my meditation practice, and I'm not feeling any anxiety about the next month or any attachment to the result. Thanks again to all of you for your unconditional support and kind words. They've really meant a lot to me.
Since I don't think computer blogging is part of the vipassana program, this is likely the last you'll hear from me for a few weeks. I may have the opportunity to duck back into the city around January 24th, since I'll have two days "off" between the 21-day advanced course and 10-day retreat, but I'm not completely sure. In the meantime, keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I will you in mine.
