It is day seven of my silent meditation retreat. I wrote this before I entered the retreat center six days ago.

I am not going to succeed the Dali Llama but also don’t really care about that kind of thing. I am well connected to my true nature and have the gift of awareness, at least for today.

Tomorrow I leave and fear the transition back to the real world. Trusting that with all this cooking in the over something has changed for the long term.

My heart is open, I clearly see the interconnectedness of all beings and the impermanence of everything. I hope I can maintain some of this non-clinging perspective, I am much happier when I see that nothing in the present moment needs to be changed–when I stop fighting reality and loosing every time.

Can’t wait to write about it – yet words do no justice to this kind of experience, after silence, words seem of little value.
