Different winds come from all directions. Some are clear, some carry dust,
some are cold or hot, fierce gales or gentle breezes. In the same way
sensations arise in the body...

i was in I-san recently and i visited a temple. whilst there i saw a thudong monk. that night i dreamed i was a thudong. It was raining hard (i heard it on the roof) and i dreamed i was wet and cold in the forest, with my robe tent, but happy and experiencing.
the next day i went to the village temple and met a monk, we talked and he said i would be welcome to study with him, it is rare to meet a senior monk who speaks english. so i kinda think it is auspicious. it is a small temple in the country with three resident monks one of which was just last week ordained. i was made to feel very welcome.
