Lesson" by Jacob Lynn
When the retreat came I was ready to go. I had been
waiting all year for the opportunity and the timing was
perfect. With each retreat measurable and beneficial changes
are apparent, and this one was similar in that respect.
Namely, fatigue fades with each and an increase of focus.
With this retreat, however, I was reminded of the greed,
anger, and ignorance that is left to be removed as my
mind became more and more clear. The final lesson was
having to leave after the seven days to return and share
with others, to practice the Mahayana Way!
