I begin yet another journal. This one was purchased for my first overnight retreat, which starts at the end of this week.
May I approach it with no expectations. May I remember that there is nothing to attain.
May “I” fall away.
“The places we visit owe us nothing for the effort we expend to visit there.” – Eric Chaline, “Zen and the Art of Travel”
I can ill afford the time away from work. I’m frightened of going away by myself. I’m scared of sitting for a week when the longest I’ve ever done is a single say.
May I approach this retreat free from expectations…
