I stopped writing regularly for this blog about 8 months ago. I had run out of things to say, and there were aspects of my life outside of dhamma that required my focus. Today, I feel new questions surfacing within me, and the answers aren’t obvious. When I started this blog in 2012 I had a similar feeling. While dhamma is not an intellectual exercise, I needed a space to logically process all the changes dhamma was bringing to my life. I found writing helped bring focus to my thoughts.
Sharing my writing has provided different benefits at different times including providing a platform to communicate my changing perspective, an opportunity to connect with other like minded meditators, and hopefully providing some support for individuals facing similar struggles. I think it also boosted my ego at times, for better or worse, to see people from all over the word reading my posts.
Today, I hope that writing and sharing my thoughts will provide similar benefits. I feel that I’m entering a new frontier on my path, and I can use all the help and support I can get. While I’m not sure how long it will last, for now I going to try writing once a week, every Friday. Hopefully the blog continues to benefit me and the people who come in contact with it. Time to meditate.
