1 February is the first day of Tricycle’s 28 – day meditation challenge.
If you are like me, you have a zillion books to read. Well, maybe not a zillion, but near that many! 🙂 So the prospect of getting another book…well, it was daunting.
You can take this challenge without having to buy a book. Click here for the link.
My thoughts: The most important part of the 28 days will be the act of sitting every day. Lately, I have been sitting almost every day with #OMCru & #Drepung (twitter groups). Knowing there are others sitting with me at the same time…even if we are a world apart works well for me. I am curious to see how my days unfold as I move along the month.
Hoping you will join me and many others as we ‘Commit to Sit’ .
Been there? Done that? 🙂 Let’s start again, who knows what you will learn this time around!

Dragonfly Road* is no more. The Blue Lotus Cafe site has imported DFR’s ramblings and
(with work and patience on my part!) will evolve into a place of warm welcome….and some shared good karma.
I will not promise grammatically-perfect posts. I might even
slp slip on my spelling. Some words, articles, posts you may not agree with. Even I may look back and not agree with the present, but that is a part of growth, yes?
Yet I can say this…TBLC is a place to grow…learn…and enjoy this ‘present’…this life. At least it is for me. And I hope it is of some value to you.
May all sentient beings be happy and have the causes of happiness!

Sharon Salzburg has a 28 Day Meditation Challenge …starting in February
Words regarding this event:
‘For the month of February, we have invited a diverse group of people to participate in the meditation program that Sharon Salzberg has laid out in her latest book, Real Happiness. We are asking them to reflect on their experiences—pleasant, difficult, and in between—and let us know how it’s going. They will be blogging and tweeting about their experiences. We will post all of the feedback we receive here on Sharon’s website.’
