Altar Merger

Its happening all over. Parishes are merging, churches are sharing spaces. Now it is happening in my very own closet.

In the effort to make more space in the house I am condensing my previously separate Tibetan Buddhist Altar into the largely Christian Rootwork Altar that I keep in the Closet. I rarely do Tibetan Sadhana that involves all the stuff anymore so this is not really a logistical challenge. It is also not, in my mind anyway, a spiritual conflict. Most of the Tibatn stuff I do is straight Dzogchen and even that is beginning to combine with the Christian Contemplative work.

Still, it will be interesting to see how this goes. It is nice to have to review what is really important in your practice and have to scale back a bit. When we finally move to a bigger place I am sure it will all spill out again. The room is still dedicated to my work, but I gotta make room to have the kids in here if I am going to get anything done.

I will post pics when it is all done.
