The Blue Dragon’s Cave – a Storehouse of Treasures, Sunday Morning

David Weinstein

Blue Dragon’s Cave Sesshin, Sunday: Small things, small moments of rest peace awakening, like ‘Thank you’. Appreciating the treasures discarded. The very things that imprison me hold the freedom, if we can ‘host’ them. Being home with them. The Storehouse ONLY opens by itself – no prying or forcing. ‘Returning’ in meditation. Leonard Cohen sings – How the Light gets in. Sunday July 28.

Stinginess & the Storehouse of Treasures

Tess Beasley

PZI Zen Online -‘From the very beginning, nothing has been withheld.’ See Audio: Stinginess & the Storehouse of Treasures. The covid prompted hoarding, the contagion of ‘not enough’, but there are subtle ways our responses change and generosity appears. Without withholding, we allow even ‘disaster’ to unfold in a project as the universe in flow & at play. As recorded. (Tess begins with reading from Marie L. Von Franz -see text file)May 26, 2020.
