30 minute meditation journal

A short sit at the zendo before we packed up, loaded all the mats, cushions and supplies onto a van to take and unload at our retreat location, not very far away. We'll all head there tomorrow to start the retreat.

Despite it being a short sit it was surprisingly powerful. I found myself making all sort of vows in my head in advance of the public vows I'll make next week. Then I found myself beaming at the other sangha members I was sitting with. I've often sat full of love for them, all their individuality and seeing potential buddhas in them all. Today felt different in a way I can't quite describe. It felt more like seeing them as all real life buddhas now, that just as they are they are already perfect. Sounds cheesy, felt lovely
