Step One Hundred and Twenty-Nine
Your teachers are with you and today in your two longer practice periods, practice being with them. You do not need to create an image of them in order to have this experience. You do not need to hear a voice or see a face, for their presence is enough to give you a complete experience that you are in fact together. If you will be still, breathe deeply and not weave fantasies—neither happy fantasies nor fearful fantasies—you will begin to experience what is actually there. Your Teachers are actually there. And today you can practice being with them.
Practice 129: Two 30-minute practice periods.
I take great comfort in the fact that my teachers are with me today. I have never heard voices or seen faces, but I do feel their presence and I trust in their teaching and in their unfailing support when I allow myself to be with them.
