Gone Fishin’?

No, I have not literally gone fishin’. In fact, I rank fishing right next to golfing among the things I least like to do. I have never understood why grownups get such satisfaction from outwitting a creature with a brain the size of a fingertip.

But gone fishin’ is a phrase in English for taking time off from the duties of daily life, and I’ll cop to that. That’s what I’ll be doing for the next week or so. I’ll be participating in the Dzogchen Center Winter Retreat, in Garrison, New York, led by Lama Surya Das.

As of 12:01 yesterday morning, I have sold my business and plan to spend the rest of my professional life writing, speaking and doing whatever else I can to promote spiritual healing. The retreat I’ll start tomorrow is part of my own self-healing. We all need to stop, breathe and smile in the Noble Silence once in a while, and drink in the wisdom of a respected teacher.

So you won’t see a new post from me here until January 10 or 11, when I expect to return to daily blogging, probably with new vitality. I’ll also get to work on a book and other projects. In the meantime, please browse the 145 blog posts you’ll find here on Melting-Pot Dharma.

May you be happy, well, and at ease.
