Bodhi Season starts in five short days, December 1, 2018, for seven days of meditation, and awakening on Bodhi Day, the morning of December 8, 2018. Mrs. Hanamoku and I have our Airbnb cabin booked, I have three work days off, and we head out to a new Bodhi Day place next week Thursday (December 6, 2018).
Remember that meditation is not just when you’re sitting in a quiet place, focusing on your deep breathing, and being mindful. Although I’m working for much of the Bodhi Season, I’m still meditating. Meditating while at work is just as much meditating as it is during that minority of time you’re in a quiet room. Keep a Beginner’s Mind and cut all that we cling to, always with the spirit of, “Is that so?”
This is a very short post. Yours truly, your good Reverend Hanamoku, has been working on an entrepreneurial software project over the past few weekends, so I haven’t written much on either this site or fishnu.org. But I will post at least a short thought, words of encouragement for your Bodhi experience, for each day of the Bodhi Season (December 1 though 8).
Some day I’ll talk more about that entrepreneurial project. It’s pretty much Version 7 of something I’ve built over the past 15 years or so. But don’t worry that I’ve become materialistic. The nature of this software is very Zen. Software is my Zen Art. If you’re a fellow Business Intelligence Developer and carefully consider what I’ve written on fishnu.org, you should get the gist of what I’m doing.
