The meditation group I started attending last Autumn has been a factor in my concerns. Confusing messages about the illusion of separateness and the limitations of ego have me questioning myself even further. Still, I am where I am in my journey, and there are signs from those I speak with and work with that tell me I have something unique to offer, a perspective informed by training and experience. We all have something unique to offer, and I am resolved to put it out there in hopes that it makes a difference, and that you, reader, will receive it, as I will take in what you have to offer, in a spirit of open acceptance.
Yesterday there was a message from the teacher of our Shambhala group, declaring May 7 (tomorrow) to be "basic-goodness day." What a lovely idea, and one I get the opportunity to share, here and in my interactions with students and clients, perhaps some shopkeepers, and certainly my family and friends. The day offers a challenge, and answers my question about whether what I have to offer is of value. As one element of our enlightened (and enlightenable) society, I recognize my basic goodness. I recognize the basic-goodness that is in you, and I trust that you will hear me without judgment. If so, maybe you could take a moment to let me know what you think, I'd like to hear from you.
