I learned a lot about myself today. I learned that I don't have to have a completely quiet mind to get the most out of the meditation service. I learned that gravity still rules even when incense lays heavy in the air and my reactions are cat quick when I'm sitting zazen. I learned that I can push myself to my limit and go past it. I learned that even though Virginia Beach is flat, the Long Creek Trail is anything but. Finally, I learned I need to work a little more so I won't bonk at mile number eight.
