2019 year of the wild Boar


Jump straight into awakening
Not going somewhere, but only returning to one´s own original mind, that clear pure mind. Because we do not believe in it, we search outside.
That is the world of the Buddha, not going anywhere, not adding on any extra thoughts but instead, to clean these up.
Inoshishi - the boar is the last in the 12 animal calendar. The source of all at the same time. The ground of our awareness.
The winter solstice on the 22nd of December the darkest days, when the new sun rays start to return, each day one tatami grain width.

The day of the shortest sun, when new life starts to return. The whole universe cleaned up of extraneous thoughts.
The source from where everything is born from.
Without doubts - simply go straight ahead and return to your true place within.
