Vajrasattva Retreat 2005:
Motivations by Lupita - Mar 25, 2005
With all the change
that happens in each instant and the uncertainty of my life, I may
not have another opportunity to express what I would like to express
in my last motivation, so I'll take this opportunity as if it were
my last. It isn't as much a motivation as it is me showing my appreciation.
So let me begin.
After having spent
3 months together in retreat, I think we've shared many things.
We've shared our most obscure and habitual attitudes, our moments
of clarity, our disagreements, our likes, our fears, some gas here
and there but most of all we've shared our tears. Wow, I
think that I've exhausted my tears for a while. A few days ago it
was quite interesting to discover that my tears normally didn't
express sadness, quite the contrary; they expressed a profound love
that could not have been translated into words. I discovered how
it was difficult for me to express verbally my admiration and gratitude
towards the people who surround me. One of the things I learned
in this retreat was to attempt to do it. I don't want to die without
expressing this marvelous feeling with the people I love.
I always thought that actions were more important
than words, but now I feel that words are equally as important.
I only want to wish that the future all of your Dharmic wishes be
satisfied. That you keep cultivating a good heart and never forget
That your next rebirth be as fortunate if not
more fortunate then this rebirth.
And finally, I want to thank you for the opportunity to allow me
to be part of this Great Dharmic Family
