visiting Eleusis

Posted on January 16, 2013 at 19:11 0 Comments

Although the weather was grey and the air was cold, it was very nice to be there and to see, discuss, sense and embrace the potential of the place. I am glad to have been of any help on the on going work. It was nice to feel so connected and to meet our very nice neighbour, Tamuly Anette!

I did also very much apreciate the atmosphere to study and the possibility…

it was nice meeting you at "Oasis of Long Life" the other day. I wish you all the best for your forthcoming exam. We shall certainly meet again since I live so close to Eleusis! A bientôt!

Hi Mirjam, thanks very much for your friend request, much appreciated. I read of your recent car journey with Dharmavidya and Jnanamati and remembered back to my recent time in their company.

I am planning to visit Eleusis around June and July next year, maybe we will meet there or at another gathering somewhere. best wishes  Rob

I found this lovely quote in a book about Jizo bodhisattva:

"We perceive the fragile nature of our human life and it makes us afraid. As protection against the inevitable assaults of a human life - separations, failures, abuse, illness and death - we construct a set of strategies and defences called a self.
