In your two practice periods today, again concentrate in meditation upon feeling the presence of your Spiritual Teachers. This is not something you have to try to do. It simply means relaxing, breathing and allowing your mind to open. The quality of your relationship with your Teachers is essential to give you strength and encouragement, for you may justly doubt your own skills, but you have good cause to fully trust the skills of your Teachers who have passed this way before on their way to Knowledge. They know the way, which they are seeking now to share with you.
Practice 36: Two 15-minute practice periods.
I want to feel the presence of my teachers and perhaps I feel it, but I also doubt sometimes that I have my own Spiritual Teachers looking out for me personally, supporting and guiding me. I do not think that God is personal in this way, so why should there be a personal relationship between me and my teachers. Who are these teachers and why are they interested in me? Is this not just wishful thinking? Or perhaps, again, I am missing some essential point here.
