i received a request to
speak about the perfection of wisdom
so now we did
did you hear us

the lovely the holy perfection of wisdom
on this altar here sitting in front of the buddha is a statue of a female divinity whose name is
prajna parameter
another in english wisdom gone beyond wisdom or perfection of wisdom
so in the perfection of wisdom wisdom goes beyond wisdom
it's a wisdom that
keeps transcending itself doesn't he doesn't done
abide
in anything including wisdom

there's a scripture called the diamond
or the diamond cutter a perfect wisdom
and it says something like
if you wish
to realize complete perfect enlightenment then it would be appropriate to train and
perfect wisdom
and then it says
so if you wish to train and perfect wisdom

think like this tell you a way to think and then and then it starts to list all the different forms of life that there could be

so says think like this
humans animals divine beings all kinds of beings all kinds of living beings that there could possibly be whatever kind of life it is
i bow to take all of them each of them and all of them to the round of peace and freedom
so it's if you want to in this scripture says if you wish to realize perfect awakening
then he would be appropriate to train and wisdom and training and wisdom starts with thinking and making the vow
sorry
all beings
the on suffering to the realm of peace and freedom
and almost kind of like hand yet some i think it says and yet

and yet
even when you take when you carry innumerable beings to peace and freedom
no beings are taken to pc freedom

and that says how come and now says because if you are
taking care of living beings and carrying them beyond suffering to peace
and freedom
if you would hold on to an idea of a living being
or the idea of a person
or a self that you are taking to nirvana and you wouldn't be a bodhisattva
so somehow the body surface neat living beings washes his mean they vow to meet living beings
like us they vow to meet living things bodhisattvas also are living beings and they allowed to meet all living beings
and work with them so that they can go beyond suffering and enter near bottom and they work with them
they themselves are not at that time kind of like concerned and going anyplace they're right here with sentient beings helping sentient beings go beyond suffering and beyond wisdom
so they're working with them closely but they don't hold on to any idea of who they're helping
a work with persons without holding onto an idea of persons
they work with her
living beings without holding an idea of living beings while they're working with them and in this way they carry them to peace and freedom
there are ideas of persons are living beings but they engaged so fully with them with these ideas
that they don't abide in them they don't hold the idea of who a person is or what their problem is
in this way they were
to carry beings to nirvana and in fact there's no there's nothing there that's carry
that's something that's an elaboration of the basic message of scripture
i said the beginning of the diamonds sexual a perfect christian
later on just do know in section ten see
it says that bodhisattvas should give life to a mind
that does not abide in anything
the body surface give life to a mind that doesn't abide in life
it doesn't abide in colors or sounds or smells or tastes or touches tangibles it doesn't abide in any mental phenomena
this is another description of a mind of perfect wisdom
a mind that doesn't the well in anything

and if something appears to the body shot arrows cultivating wisdom if something appears again they care for whatever it is they made it fully and i'm meeting at full
lee
in some sense the criterion of meeting volley
is not abiding in it
and vice versa the criterion of not riding in a collar is to meet it fully room
the criterion of not abiding and a living being
is to meet the living being fully and the by the criterion of many fully is not dwelling in the meeting or the being or your son
so once again the bodhisattva vows to embrace and sustain all beings and carry them to nirvana
to embrace and sustain are being so they will mature and allow themselves to be carried to nirvana
modi soft as right now are trying to carry us all to nirvana but we may not feel ready
i have a few more points before i can go
i have to write my will before i go

at work meeting please remind me about to talk to you about writing wheels
so i want you all to write your will soon so that you will be allow yourself to be taken to nirvana
in case you have any resistance because i'm certain business matters that you have to take care of and like you to take care of that so you can allow yourself to be carried to nirvana
and when you're ready to allow yourself i just tell you beforehand what it will be like
when you're being carried to nirvana
you won't abide in being carried
and you won't abide in carrying and you won't abide in being a carrier
when you're carrying beings to nirvana you don't abide in being the carrier or the carried or the carrying
that's perfect western we're working to
it were working for all beings to be carried and carry in to nirvana without abiding in carrier carry or carrying
i've seen really clear to me was that clear to you
so another teaching about the perfection of wisdom
is that it is practicing giving
where there is no abiding and giver
receiver or gift
so the bodhisattvas of course practice giving but when they practice giving a perfect wisdom they are not abiding and being the donor they are not abiding and being the recipient they are not abiding in being the gift
where they're not abiding in doner donation
reception or gift but all those of course there's no giving without receiving and there's no receiving without giving and there's no giving a receiving without gift and there's no gift without giving and receiving all these
elements in the dynamic medium which carries the git dynamic generosity which carries beings to nirvana all the elements have no inherent nature no independent existence and this is how we are carried to know
varna and how we carry others to nirvana
before ourself
yes you using

ah nirvana or you i it's a word that means peace it's basic definition is peace
ivana means peace it doesn't mean
the root of the were nirvana is to blow out as an extinguish so it's it's blowing out in a way of all that seems to hinder peace
in the positive sense nirvana is peace in the negative sense it's blowing away all hindrance the peace and freedom and ease
huh
and another example is the perfection of wisdom is practicing ethics
without leaning into transgression
er nahm transgression
so voice office of course but just giving an ethics in when they
practice it in accord with perfect wisdom they practice giving like i just said and they practice ethics for not leaning into transgressing of course but they also don't mean into non transgression so perfect with new has been upright with transgression and not trans
scrushy it's big upright with killing and not killing
and so on their teachings of how to practice ethics patience generosity gildan the joke diligence and generosity ethics patience diligence and
concentration
and then wisdom
and so again the last one the last of the first five of the six transcendent practices with concentration and the perfection of concentration is to give up to give away your concentration if any have you ever get concentrated
did you want to perfect it don't donate your computer tranquility and your concentration give it away which is similar to don't hold onto it
even in the walk wonderful state of concentration which is necessary in order to be with the meeting
what meeting a meeting with sentient beings
in the meeting with sentient beings we need to be
remembering stillness
and we we need to remember being
relaxed and open and flexible so that we can participate
in the carrying of beings to nirvana without paying
rigid in the process like i'm being carried on the carrier sir concentration sets the stage for being able to be flexible and playful in the process of carrying me to peace
and that perfection is perfected by not holding onto this thing that you need you need concentration
and you give it away and that perfects it
so if you've got concentration good you need it or practicing wisdom
now perfect give it away now you got to perfected you've got now you have the given away concentration

this is the end of the first section of my talk on the perfection of wisdom and now i'm ready to the next section of my talk
but before i do i'd like to hear a word from responsive
are you want to buy your sponsor kbs are you are sponsored yes are you are sponsoring i am sponsoring which one is you author yeah know how it happens everything else
can i ask a question actually are yeah i'm sure to thank you for your home
is it ever helpful too old to hold onto an idea i have a feeling you're going to see if are helpful to hold onto anything it's very helpful to hold on ideas if you aspire to create stress
if you want to contribute to the misery of the world and hold onto your idea of me
for example
if britain the instance of like insight meditation contemplating a particular being or person is that and is that holding onto an idea or that meeting the idea of fully
contemplating a person is not holding on to the idea of the person it's not
but if you ten like it is that you will be doing what we call the alchemy of misery
so you can take care of someone
and in taking care of them you might contemplate them and pay attention to them and listen to them
that's that's not abiding in anything
but if you think it is abiding in anything then you're going against the teaching of the perfection of wisdom which has take care of beings without abiding in them take care of colors without abiding in them take care of your ideas about people without abiding
just in case you might think of abiding it st dot
don't do that so that you can realize perfect wisdom and if you are abiding then
don't abide in the gr biting
ready for the next section
oh no yes
how would you will you still mean you're not mean concentration unique
the
i think i think she said when i say stillness you don't just mean concentration you mean generosity ethics patience diligence and concentration
and then she said is that correct
and let's just say it is shown to be
so this is one of these rare examples where
tracy understands perfectly
she has no no doubts
so yeah stillness is all those and but still this really in a way it's also remembering perfect wisdom
and stillness is another word for reality
but ah yes the vow that you started out i'm left with nothing else it don't want your comment about that he could want to remember it
ah yeah
i pray that will remember the vow which we don't hold onto
i pray that i pray that we remember the vowed to attain enlightenment perfect enlightenment for the welfare of this world
and that we don't abide in that bow
now again and and then all these things which tracy mansion
i'm giving ethical discipline patience diligence and concentration all those
it should be practiced without holding onto them
like dancing with somebody without really holding onto them embracing them but not holding not restraining not clinging to them moving with them so all those are practices without abiding gay and the vow which is the basis of all of them this
same with the wow
and these practices that we just mentioned those five practices
they protect and keep the vow alive
and the bow is is this is the kind of like
the basis of all those practices including them again in the sutra it doesn't mention the other the first five practices we just talked about because right to the perfection of wisdom after stating the vaults of first is about
and then practice perfect of wisdom so you won't abide in the wow
and when you have the bow and practice perfect wisdom that will help you not abide in the vow and that will protect the wow
as nina it often says the ultimate protection
the body search for wow
his realization of
it on grasp ability of all things
so if you know that you can't grasp the bar new will let go of it and it's like this see that
that's giving and receiving it to save time case you
i'm not holding on to giving or receiving they're both there and also the gift a circus his gift
waking helps us good
and then homer
point about a mile
so home it has a different viewpoint about abiding yeah
the because i was providing to say and something in me or biting and me the five like abiding in yourself
yeah i'm i mean
i don't read my stuff or apply me he says that i've never had to stop i'm i'm someone who never had a stop
but then i started to meet people who haven't been
i'm starting to appreciate them that they had a me
so
then the i think there's no not no wrong with somebody by me in because it gives us a chance to see their knees and if they if it is providing did not exist how could we see
horace
the forms are applying in the their own for
it's wonder
right
i'm i'm happy to hear you think it's wonderful of whores are abiding in what in their form colors are biting and color
okay so i i think is wonderful to and sofa and i'm trying to give life to a mine it doesn't abide and most wonderful colors
we've got the wonderful colors now how about not abiding in them yes korean and would it be a whole the number or last month i asked you let
let by by passing to fine abide
and he said without hesitation being star know and not present you we're not hard to continue the conversation for like love that last you know that's not quite that bad
thank you for the story are you abiding in history
it is i found a half
and so i thought others might find a really long and so
the colors are abiding in the colors and i want to find a mine which doesn't get stuck in the colors
the of the me is abiding in the me and i want to find
a way to not get stuck in me
and the way to get not instructing me i told you before what's that yeah i they get not stuck in me
while i was ten seconds ago so i can imagine why you forgot it not a violation extension ones you to by fully engaging in x
you don't abide in next not abiding and expertise for the engaging in acts so fully engaging with the color you don't abide in it not abiding image you for the engage with them
yeah and what is that because you need to know hundred and on a not abide in bags so that they can for the engage with them
if you do if you
if you abide in them you can't fully engage it lit having you you can't realize full engagement
a full engagement realize it's not abiding and not abiding allows you to before the engaged even with so and so
yes this the same as could easily
is not abiding the same as giving it away yes it's the same as giving it away without abiding in the giving it away or being the giver of the giving it away or in the receptive excipient of it being given away
so it's giving it away and fully engaging in giving it away
yes if i if not been
being stuck in something has not been fully engaged with it would it be fair to say that whenever you're stuck in something if you're not fully engage with that you don't realize you're stuck
ah so he said something not fully engage your not not stuck to be fully engage me it's not stock now you're stuck in something you're not able to engage i don't know if that's what it means but i'm okay if you are fully engaged without say what means you will not be stuck okay
if you are fully get yeah if you are fully engaged you will not be stuck
if you're not fully engaged then you will be stuck but if you're not fully engaged you realize that you're stuck
i think a lot of people think they're stuck and they think they're stuck
and they and they also think they're not for the engage
i mean maybe they do think there is but if they look love that they realize they don't think the fully engaged
so i think often when you feel stuck you can notice that year resistant
that you're hesitating at you're wallowing
but as you know the time to hesitate is through
time to wallow in mine
now we have a chance to choose we can join the buddha's choir
haven't heard her
really where wholehearted
deep were deeply wholehearted are deep relationship is that where wholeheartedly engage and are deep relationship if we're not abiding in others or self
and we wholeheartedly care for beings really
you know ultimately that's ultimately and deeply we deeply care for
all beings wholeheartedly
superficially you know
we may think we're not have engaged
our that we have a choice about being for the engaged
in some people really are some person just told me yesterday cop few days ago i touch our that she was afraid of not having deep relationships and i said well you're afraid that reality is not in
your life
but of course reality is in your life you do a deep relationships but they don't appear you can't you can't see how deep your relationships you are
can see it you can't see how hard as you are
so we look half hearted and when we look half hearted were more or less stuck
and we can know we're stuck in that we can say you know i must admit i confess i feel stuck and i should confess i feel half hearted
like that story i tell over and over again one of my first work assignments in the monastery was to repair broken water lines
it was a storm
and me and another guy named jim mcguire
went to fix the brakes and there were several breaks so we fixed the first one and we went to fix a second one and i said to him let's go back and fix the brig
and he knew what i met
we fixed it but not wholeheartedly
we fixed it thinking of the next brig and the next break and how all the breaks we had to fix so we didn't give full attention to this one and we knew it but we went back i didn't confess gym i think i did a lousy job or half-hearted job and that flash joint
and i think we should go back i just said let's go back and he understood
so i think we can sense when we're veering away from wholehearted engagement
we can sense when we're looking away from the pain of others
or war or we were wallowing at we can kinda tell
and you can wallowing so then we confess that
to the big buddhas and that process will melt away the root of half heartedness of veering away of transgressing from a half heartedness transgress half from not clinging
but when we're not clean we have no idea of clean
the idea of not please you know my zip by but also right after cleanings chasing have right after it gone not clinging more to right now in it's it's an active situation
yeah
better even though
what can totally free when we're not clinging were free of not clean
yes
every time i think i understand this and will actually you let go of it
for letting she keep letting go of her intellectual understanding i we want to be stuck in her an option that i am i live in it so she lets it go and then she has another question is now left the house and a month ago as you've been talking about case the they have a week from while
already received my house me like oh but she'd been talking about face to face meeting her lap and then i don't know i really didn't understand that stuff that i thought i understood because it becomes much riskier there's another you know my to highest yeah part of
wisdom is ethics
you can't have perfect you can't i can't fully engage with beings without ethical discipline
an ethical discipline involves a other
calling me into question putting the in question
so i'm yeah that's part of the deal is being in question
there's no questions were missing out on the question part part of the practices question ethic visible in this question
what you know what's the kind way
and then that will lead you to have their question and have a response with are clinging to the question or the response i think this would be good
what we're thinking about you started out with the diamond sutra thing you know beings understanding please don't exist when there's already it doesn't say they don't exist to just you're helping beings
without holding on any idea of the beings your help helping like you're helping me and you have an idea of me like you're helping me without clinging to your idea of me
that tell you that's how you take me to your bomb
and when you care for me without
when you care for this person without holding an idea of a person you're a body shot
to not have ideas of people and not help them that's not a to itself of motorcyclists working to help people in the greatest way without holding an idea of
who the person is what helping is or who is a helper is
and that
and that's face to face transmission which is the next section of talk on perfect which one
if we're ready for the next section

and i guess not yet sure i'm i'm thinking about my relationship to my physical body yes
how to or how this relates to the experience of not i'm experiencing like pain or player with our timing
well
pain i would say is a sentient being it's a living me
as calling to you for compassion
your body's calling for compassion i think about his client or compassion not just to your consciousness where you live but your body's calling for compassion to my consciousness ron living
but my access to the call of your body is different than yours i have different sense organs from you
so the way your body calls to my consciousness
is somewhat different than the the means by which it calls to you
but your body is calling for compassion
and your body is being called to compassion
and your body is responding to the call for bashi
and other bodies are responding to your body's call for compassion
and other minds are
responding to your call
of your body and your mind your consciousness is responding to the call from your body for compassion
so we have just plenty of calls for compassion we are we are being well called
i'm being called by all of you
for compassion all your bodies are calling to me for compassion have no shortage of requests and that's the i respond
my body actually responds to all of your calls
of course i can't see how that i can't see how your all hot how all your bodies are calling to my body and i can't see how my body's responding toy your calls
i'm just saying
oh what perfect wisdom is
which i can't see
but which i believe him

and of course this being called by everybody is pretty wholehearted and responding to everybody his whole heart but i can see that
but that that realm of perfect wisdom is present here with the realm of we might call partial wisdom for a little bit of wisdom
where are you think somebody's calling for you and your responding to somebody that you don't yet realize that everything's call you and your responded to everything don't quite see that yet you don't understand that yet is hear about it

so i didn't i wasn't trying to override the okeanos question but i did move into the next section
i moved into the section of how perfect wisdom
his face to face
communion
that we are we have a face
we have maybe two faces one face we have
is the latest version of the one that are came out of my mother's body
so when i hear that when i was born i had a face
and then that base went away and and another one came
and now we have the latest version of about succession of faces so i i've had a face all along and here know i have one now
i have another face all along which was a face i had before my parents were born and i have that face not too
so the perfect wisdom his face to face transmission between
limited faces
and limited faces
between limited means and other meas in the whole hearted meeting
limited faces with limited faces
we don't abide in the meeting of the limited faces
and we open
to the ever presence of the face before we were born
is
it's that perfect wisdom
yes but also perfect wisdom is dealing with the face limited place so perfect western deals with the limited face and helps it be wholehearted and when helping you to be all hardy there's no abiding in the limited face so then is perfect which themselves from the cricket is right there
air with the limited face but if we don't wholeheartedly engaged a limited face and not abide in it but half-hearted is closes the door on the infinite invisible face
so yeah there's an invisible face with each of our faces

an invisible face is the way our face
is calling all faces and responding to all faces
which is the same as our body
it's the face of our body which is the face that's calling to all faces am responding to offices
and this meeting face to face
limited face to limited face whole high in wholeheartedness is perfect wisdom which includes
the
background of the limited foreground background is that all faces are at this meeting
when you meet one person wholeheartedly you need everybody wholeheartedly
when you wholeheartedly practice perfect wisdom with one person or with yourself that is everybody practice perfect wisdom because everybody is included in you
ensuite and were concerned with this because we vowed to help all beings at the way you help our bigs is to help this being
so fully that does not claim for this be as the same as other people not clinging to this beam
and this is a function of perfect wisdom
yes
you keep repeating
i read you speak louder i can't hear you you you repeated yourself several times that i can we cannot see with our eyes
so when you see the refer to the high you're not seen you're not repairing scheme as the way you are
right i'm talking about i can't see all the people all the eggs in the universe i can't see them with my eyes
your son and now that but when when i see things with my eye vision i it's sort of as evolved that when i see you i think i seen you enough
do not like it's like oh there's lily yeah but i far i don't think like whoa there's somebody and i don't know who it is it's like personal that's why i'm looking at if not and that's her and this and this is not her i think i think i am my vision is
add quick to the person
but my vision is not adequate
to non abiding my vision is not adequate to learn about my visit my big which i think once again just a up my vision is adequate to by to abiding
my vision is adequate to a half hearted and living my vision is not adequate to hearted non abiding perfect arrested but that doesn't mean i don't totally respect and the wonder of my vision is just wonderful
my fact i have an appointment on thursday was a diet doctor and i'm
hoping that it should say all you have to have cataract surgery
and then i'll be able to see even more how beautiful the colors are and even more enjoy not abide a given a
all the better do not abide in you
but i think she probably won't say
you need up in a cataract surgery so i probably won't get it and i'll keep saying things in the somewhat old age way some people whose vicious really bad gets if the surgery and then they whoa whoa look at the colors i don't know
i remember what you mean

yeah so okay you get a choice rab you can easy you can have better vision and inviting those duties
or have your dim vision without abiding which would you choose i choose the latter
hi cheers blindness
and not abide in rather than perfect spectacular
constantly beautiful vision that i abide in and there and thereby cause trouble to every play
and spread misery by been stuck in your beautiful faces as high
and face to face transmission i am not stuck in your face or hi
and you are not stuck in yours or mine
we used the meeting face to face a free ourselves from abiding
to realize that there's no basis for abiding to realize perfect wisdom which liberates beings and obvious the doors of peace even though there's no beings for whom we open the door

we are still in section two called perfect wisdom as face to face transmission

and in this face to face transmission
all the buddhist teachings are
being given and received
so the prototypic zen story is a zen story you will not find the story so far we have not found the story in india
when in china them there's a story that appeared
more than a thousand years ago but not two thousand and five hundred years ago a story that the buddha the historical buddha in india was speaking to the group i believe on a mountain called vulture peak
and he picked up a flower
and twirl them
and winked
it doesn't say which are some translation say link
but i go for winter
the buddha raised flower and wait
and one of the monks smile
a good are called to the monk monk responded among called to the buddha and the border monk said would you please raise that flour and tournament in the version
and then a monk smiled you did only waked
i was actually just asking you to tour the flower but then you winked on top of the back and really was great good job buddha
and then the buddha says i now transmit the entire
true dharma i treasury to maha cautious of this person
the inconceivable mind and nirvana is transmitted in his face to face meeting
but that language leads people to think that the buddha gave the
true dharma i treasure to maha kashipur but my kashipur didn't give the true
dharma i treasure to the gouda
at the border gate the mind the inconceivably wonderful mind of peace and freedom to choose to cycle to disciple didn't give it to the buddha so
i would say that seeing that meeting as perfect wisdom it is in both directions
a good i did give the whole teaching to the student but the whole the student if the whole teaching to the buddha
one teacher
without the student giving them core kitchen to the teacher
how do they do how do they give they give by this meeting the meeting is actually the whole teacher
and they give it to each other
the in can save a reminder of nirvana is given and received by both
otherwise if the good is doing the giving and great the site was doing a receiving
a buddha might be abiding in the position of giver
and the student might be a filing in the position of receiver but a perfect wisdom which is the buddha's mommy
what good does not abide in the position of buddha and the disciple does not abide in the position of the site
they and by not abiding in their position
they give their position
and they realized perfect wisdom
face to face

this story about the way the border transmit the whole teaching to the disciple is zen story emphasizes a face to face meeting
which was there before santa rosa china but i people didn't mention it so much but of course the buddha was always there meeting the students face to face but mostly i think people cause the oldest face was true
admitting and the disciple space was receiving rather than the buddhist space was transmitting and receiving the disciples face and the disciple was transmitting and receiving the buddhist face this point was not emphasized in india as much as we are emphasized
it today
but it was there at buddha face was there looking right in those eyes
transmitting and those eyes were looking right back at the border and the buddha the buddha was that's how the buddha teaches by this face to face transmission in both directions simultaneously
and that's how we are there
we are transmitting to each other face to face
we are giving ourselves to each other we are getting our face and receiving the other face
with everybody
and if we work on it with one person early we will open to how we're working on with everybody
but working out when one person thoroughly is
a big challenge

just with one person is a big challenge but big part it if you meet the challenge and the other person and which means you meet the challenge of the other person meeting challenge to people and realize the dharma for office
okay so that's the second part of the talk on perfect wisdom
and i now will entertain entertainment yes
she's upstairs actually new faces for i there's no basis the perfect wisdom is the lack of a basis for abiding
my mind or two thousand and thirteen a substantial reality to apply there's no substantial reality to anything including abiding and yeah i gathered that this a danger and say it actually is no alibi
to say to say there actually is no biting there is danger there that you might abide in that statement
that's you
as illness that's basically only danger in life is abiding because it is doing what we can't do that's the main danger in life is to like the i do wouldn't really can't be done like be stingy abide in a biting your money you can
but it's dangerous money's dangerous because you might think he can have like there's no basis to it but the ill the illusion of a fighting is being constantly produced
so there is no basis for it let us paint reduced that's why words and we're going to continue to have
abiding
it's always gonna be abiding and misery
and is going to be accompanied by perfect wisdom except there's no basis for this abiding therefore beings who are fighting can be carried to nearby without getting rid of the illusion of abiding a superficial is not going to be eliminated by the profound there
always together
we're trying to realize the profound and the way we realized a profound is by forty engaging with the superficial
have you do out of superficial and there's no basis for it and if we fully engage with what there's no basis for will realize there's no basis
and then will be free without tampering with the illusions of superficiality
or the superficial illusions
yes
would you also say that his face to face transmission is communion yeah what is a face to face communion right holy communion when you said it was a it was a face of his transmission between just limited face another limited spaces would you also say if it
was it it's also a communion between this limited face and based before you were born yeah it's also so this face is the foreground
this paste that in the lineage of faces
had been going on for seventy four years this face if the foreground mike other face which is the background and sometimes if i really wholeheartedly have this space
background be forbidden and the foreground with his background numbers i won't see my face anymore
all i see is the entire universe and that will be my face
she is it that's not much of a face or you can say that's quite face
so it's communion between the original face and the new face and it's communion between new faces and new faces are limited faces in the many faces and limited faces and unlimited faces all that's going on in this universe
that's holy communion

just like him any good if you go to a catholic church
actually i didn't bring any wafers today if we had done
but if i did give you all away
putting your mouth you might not understand that when you taste that
wafer wholeheartedly
there's no abiding in that taste and if you can receive that communion that that touch on your tongue wholeheartedly you won't abide in that touch on your tongue and all beings
oh receive
that same hardiness

but the same applies to your lunch which is coming up
but before lunch we're going to do a service this is kim webster year this is kim
and her mom died not too long ago
we're going to do a memorial service for her mom there's a picture of her mom on the altar there

she wants to thank you all for being here
i didn't turn out to thank you to
okay so is had enough for this morning
