2018 Rohatsu Sesshin – Day 5
Take care of yourself when you go back outside [at the end of sesshin] because you are more raw then you think you are. And here you are around a bunch of raw people so you can’t even tell. And then you walk out and whoosh – there it is.
So this is the trick – how do we revere the vulnerability that is the gateway to Buddha fields when we are in places that do not revere it at all? Not only do not revere, but don’t have tome for it, see it as weakness, see it as not efficient enough – whatever.
