1. Dear one, I am really here for you.
2. Dear one, I know that you are here, and I am very glad about it.
This is from the first essay in Right Here with You: Bringing Mindful Awareness into Our Relationships.
An account of my pursuit of trying to deepen and intensify my Dharma practice, through TBC, Zen (Ch'an, Soen), Tibetan and Theravada traditions, Refuge Recovery, with book reviews, cultural notes, photography, and anything Buddhisty I can get my hands on.
