On this first Sunday in the new year, we reflected on our aspirations. Remember when you first encountered the dharma? What was it that drew you in? What seemed valuable, useful, practical? What was your goal, your aspiration? Has that changed? Has it evolved? Were you looking for something new, something better, something more exciting or satisfying? Did you find it? Did you find something else, something unexpected? Have you come closer with practice? What is your aspiration right now in this moment?

Steve guided our reflections on these questions, and shared a video of Buddhist nun Sister Le Nghiem sharing her deep and discerning personal experience of aspiration in the Dharma.
