Bodhichitta practice. Informal. Slow.
Not striving for. Not reaching for. Breathing in.
We breathe into the heart center and find it armored. Of course it’s armored. We breathe anyway. Like making friends with a feral cat. We sit nearby. For a day, or a week. Then we sit alongside. Companionable. No demands.
A day is a long time. A week is no time at all.
It rained overnight. The snow fell this morning. Now the wind blows.
