Since another participant shared her “Emptying the Cup” reflection, I started feeling uncomfortable.
In fact, she has uncovered my cup, which I found so full … even overflowing!
It is largely filled with knowledge, in a very intellectual sense and not always then brought to live confrontation with reality.
I am happy I had the opportunity to recognize this (step “without which not”) and I make the resolution to resume constant, consistent practice and to preserve and nourish the “heart” part and make the rest less intrusive and hopefully, slowing down, chanting, practicing, listening with less demands and expectations, without afterthoughts or plans about me/myself .
Making space for his teachings just to sink into me, permeate my heart, impact my experience and be ready to simply emerge.
