Barley Potato Soup

This time he was At El Yogur, my meditation mentor. After him asking me a little bit about what I do in meditation, I was telling him that I wished to carry that Divine Love all the time. He said, “To be enlightened isn’t to sit on a throne.” He laughed. “When I was in Tibet, I was honored to be invited to sit with three enlightened beings, well-known throughout the mountains of Tibet. One man was  a fisherman, one a builder and one a cook. And you know what they are today? One is a fisherman, one a builder and one a cook.”
