I always love leading these things. But at the same time, I sometimes wonder if the words will come. I know I can’t attach to outcomes. If I did, I’d be frustrated with myself as well as many of my students. Instead, I find myself wondering what might happen once I take my seat in front of all those precious beings, and after a few seconds of quiet and a few breaths taken all the way to my core, I open my mouth hoping that the Dharma will be available to all of us. What if nothing shows up.
Then the teaching will be about no-thing-ness.
