Out With The Old

The last day of the solar year is here, and so am I... Walking and sitting alone in the forest. Other monks in the forest around but I stay to myself; not yet done is that what needs to be done. We have come here to clear up our past by living in the present. Out with the old to make room for the new - hoping to be better prepared this time around. Last night sitting in the open air through the night, sleeping when otherwise wasn't an option. Tonight my last chance of the year to live life to its fullest. Susukha.m vata jiivaama. Happy indeed we live.
