dialogue

I remember reading the Zen story of a teacher/monk who lies dying, and, as one of his students comes to him, says, “I don’t want to die….” – and the student replies: “Thank you for your service.”

I  feel the relief in my bones about an in-depth dialogue that goes far beyond picking up what the other person has not said. Creating an echo round the world.
