temple diaries

Major love understanding after a night dreaming of holding a beautiful person with blonde hair while sharing heart to heart.

A friend has been sharing her concerns and spiritual journey. It’s a motivation to practice well, the tribulations of friends.

She mentioned the pain of displacement from the homeland, which I didn’t feel until this summer really and it knocked me down for weeks…feeling all that separated Ba and family cycling back and folded into my own struggles to return legitimately to a home that I couldn’t be sure how to belong to fully, if at all.

I told to her to come visit, that she would be so proud of this lineage of hers.  She said she would come soon and hearing what I’m learning definitely has boosted her spirit.
