Greetings Dear Ones, here we go again!
Change, Change, Change.
i hate it, i love it, i am always in it, the life of a nomad i guess,
i guess thats what i have always been, and what i will always be lifetime after lifetime. maybe i started this journey as a Mongolian nomad. maybe i will end it as a Mongolian nomad. well that was the plan, i came here to finish my life in mongolia, and thanks to others negative behavior that seems as if that is exactly what will happen. sometimes things happen beyond our control that work out for the best, even though it seems like it is the end of the world when you are caught up in it.
i think i handled my self well in this latest upheaval. but up upheaval it was. and again i get up dust my self off and carry on along the path.
so here we go again with change.
off to a new place, and new monastry, and a new provence, what will this bring? what new adventure is in store now?
as always we will see. life is a journey and trip and one adventure after another. …………………..
long live the process……………….

My Mongolin Kuti May 12, 2013

Excited, amazed, blissed, blessed, grateful, happy, wonder, even a little bit of fear…..

so many emotions flooding froth….

maybe i am finally here… 16 yrs, 17 this July… that is how long it took me to get to this place on the path…

but the kuti is finished, tomorrow they will paint the outside and of course the little touches i add over the years. but that’s the rest of the never-ending story…

This has been an amazing journey, i have always loved to watch movies of the catholic nuns sequestered in old secluded nunneries on mountain cliffs near the water’s edge and old Victorian castle like priories , and have always dreamed of being one of these silent nuns, but alas i was not catholic so yet another dream differed….

even when i stumbled on the path of the Buddha‘s Dharma i never thought i would take robes and traverse this path , i was just looking for a meditation practice. but those deeply rooted seeds that vibrated when i was a child every time i saw a nun or nunnery sprung forth, that fateful day in Derbyshire… and here i am, after years of bodhisattva work i can now sit back and contemplate, analyze and gather my thoughts on all i have done and all that i have not done.

finally there is time, time to take it all in, see where i am , where i have been, and where i go from here…  [finally there is time, let’s hope i don’t break my glasses  LOL] let me now if you get that reference 🙂

so here is my little kuti.  manifested! 6 months ago i stepped on to the grounds of Sain Nomun Monastery in Ulaanbaatar Mongolia and spied 2 old dilapidated buildings and said that will be the future site of Palmoling Nunnery, well we are half way there.  less that half actually i got big plans….. hold on to your hat!!!

i wont say much about the pix, you can see, before , during and after, will post pix after the paint job and after the garden is in and the completed outhouse.

till then.

PEACE , BLESSINGS, LOVE & LIGHT

Now let’s go inside for the, big make over reveal!

so the kuti is 24 x 24 and as you inter the door there is a mud room, i guess 6 x 12

then the kitchen area where the coal stove is, then there is an opening that goes in to the rest of the place where i have my bed and meditation space.
