keep in mind
Keep in mind, always, that the path is the goal. The process, how we engage one another and what we learn from this, are most important and more lasting than any objective result. All our thoughts and ideas, all of our hopes and fears are all ultimately dreams that will evaporate like dew under the morning sun. But, of course, our journey and the lessons it brings will be with us always, even after enlightenment.
Remember too, that meditation is our very life, it is our flesh and bones and the blood that runs through our veins. We will best accomplish our work together according to the wishes of the lineage if we continually return to the open ground, the groundless ground of our practice.
