Some words from Richard:
In the stillness of sitting, of being with all that is here, I experience a rediscovery of the simple wonder and curiosity that children know so well. In this quieting down, there is a feeling of connection, of kindness with everything—including bodily sensations and feelings. . . the unruly arising of thoughts and emotions. . . the presence of people and relationships, of animals and trees and houses. . . the whole dynamic dance of life. There is a rediscovery of what is. A rediscovery of the miracle of spacious awareness. This spaciousness of being that is our nature.
This silent wonder and openness is not something I do, it’s not a state of mind, nor something willed. Awareness simply is.
