Heavy day... Remembering all the work done in this room as the doors close at a place I’ve known as a home, a training ground, a safe space, a place to learn... as a sangha and a community, as a refuge, a journey and a place to do The Work. So long @againstthestream ... originally known as Dharma Punx... The things that were down in there are coming up today... Mad work put in here since ‘07. For all the people who came here to live in the moment and pay attention to the subtleties of the moment, focus on their breath, observe the sensations, let their thoughts go, turn the observational mind on itself, and investigate the thoughts and feeling tones... to heal... and to dialogue and learn about the process... I salute you. You helped hold a space for me to go in, and keep coming back. Thinking of the people, the sangha, the teachers, the sits, the work, the release, the healing, the Dharma... and the Buddha! In this room I did Meditate... and Destroy - the greed, hatred and delusion that filled my mind. And kept on doing it. And will continue to. This is just a physical place... and a place infused with so much effort, energy and intention. Carrying that with me in my heart, my Soul and my trained mind and sending it across the universe. Thank You and Goodbye Against The Stream... Hello to what comes next... Difficult to let go... But practicing what the Buddha talked about at length as a way to end suffering - non-attachment... May all beings be free from suffering and may the work done in this space be helpful and aid in the liberation of the people and the healing of all that is.
