I wasn't planning to ask him a question. It was the end of day one of a two day meditation retreat with Anam Thubten and people started lining up to ask him their personal questions. "If you want to ask him a practice question, now is the time," urged the woman next to me. She had been part of the community for years. I clearly looked hesitant. "Don't be shy, this is your chance." Ok Universe. I hear you. I said to myself. It's always like that. I'm stubborn, and the Universe keeps nudging me along until it's blatantly apparent and then I give up on digging in my heels and walk.
