Namo tassa bhagavato arahato samma sambuddhassa
(Honour to the Blessed One, the Exalted One, the fully Enlightened One)

“All you have to do is shine”. These words are from a dream.  On the first day of a Chan retreat on Holy Island I dreamed that my mum and grandma were cooking. I asked my mum where the number 4 brother was and she said: “He’s taken M. swimming.” Now ‘M.’ is the number 2 brother so I say: “How can the younger one take the older one?” Mum: “Didn’t you hear?  The whole family has turned upside down.  Now the younger ones look after the older ones.” I’m the youngest so I said “how can I look after everybody?” My grandma looks up and says: “All you have to do is shine!” Thank you grandma :)
