Why Sesshin Is So Good

Here's why sesshin is so good:

Lost in a story line?  Ding  Time to get up and walk.  Replaying the drama?  Bong  Time to chant.  Feeling bad about your life?  Boom boom boom boom boom  Vacuum the floors and stairwells.  Feeling all comfy and snug?  Bok bok bok bok bok   Haul your rump out of bed and plop yourself on the cushion in the chilly early morning zendo.

And the best reason of all:

Thinking you'd like to spend the rest of your days in sesshin?  Ding [deadbeat]  It's over, so get on out and get on with your life.
