Session 5, assignment for week 3

We all Got Rhythm

Rhythm, the witness, acts of conducting, all seem to be qualities of experience that are naturally free but which are easily co-opted by a self who doesn’t like to dance, is unobservant, and mechanically conducts whatever the past projects forward.

However rhythm arises as the natural exuberance of time running through the breadth of space; the witness emerges as the dimension of our being that is alive, aware and full of potential; and the act of conducting—when we sense its presence as dynamic flow—can imbue the witness with the knowledge that it is able to take that scary high-dive into the waving, sunlit surface of time and space.


About Michael Gray

I first started studying TSK in the mid 1980's and have since attended a number of retreats and workshops at the Nyingma Institute, in both TSK and Buddhist themes. I participated in the life-changing Human Development Training Program in 1991, and upon returning to Albuquerque co-founded an organization, Friends in Time (with a friend who has Lou Gehrig's Disease), which continues to serve people with similiar disabilities. I contributed an essay to "A New Way of Being"--the last one in the book--in which I describe how learning to honor who I have been has broadened and deepened my openness to present experience. I live in New Mexico with my wife and two sons.
