Thank you all for your support.
I shall keep it rolling through thick and thin.
It would be cooler if this was a cult and you were all brainwashed followers who would act on my every whim... but I will settle for interested readers.
As if by magic, Anamchara posted a quote today that is relevant to our community here:
Listen to the prophets, not to some adolescent boy.
The foundation and the walls of the spiritual life
are made of self-denials and disciplines.
Stay with friends who support you in these.
Talk with them about sacred texts,
and how you’re doing, and how they’re doing,
and keep your practices together.
— Rumi, translated by Coleman Barks with John Moyne,
from The Essential Rumi
Readers, and most especially fellow bloggers, you help from exactly the kind of spiritual community that Rumi is speaking of. I thank you.
