When we take the one seat on our meditation
cushion we become our own monastery. We cre-
ate the compassionate space that allows for the
arising of all things: sorrows, loneliness, shame,
desire, regret, frustration, happiness.

keeps repeating in consciousness, it is a signal
that this visitor is asking for a deeper and fuller
Concentration is never a matter of force or coer-
cion. You simply pick up the puppy again and
return to reconnect with the here and now.
