“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Shit That Happened to Me on This Retreat

This was a silent retreat, solitary except for morning teachings. Brilliant.

(1) Note the bandaid. Also note the mudra, called Turning the Wheel of Dharma or, as I prefer, Buddhism Is the Fucking Shizzle.

(2) Prostrating on a concrete floor continued.

(3) A phase of fantastically colorful paranoia ensued. Note pupils...

(4) Result! I made it through the karmic laundromat all nice and clean.

...this is what I was looking at when I took that last one (real actual photo, taken September 5):

Telling by your tongue and complexion it looks like you got some Spleen Deficiency with Stomach (dry) and Liver Heat. Try juicing cucumber, broccoli, daikon, grape fruit and pineapple.

Were you in Crestone?
