Today, I am going to spend a whole day of meditation somewhere out of town with my old Buddhist group. I haven't done this for over a year, and even then my contact with the group was already sporadic. I'm looking forward to seeing old friends and having a quiet peaceful day in a lovely place.
The tensions I left at work, when I went on my little holiday, were still there when I got back (surprise surprise). The first day was nice but on the second I could feel the poison creeping back and taking hold.
I have known for a long time that this is something I have to tackle face on, but I'm chicken. Maybe today will give me some tools to do so.
