Breakfast at Trinh's



Do you know the movie « breakfast at Tiffany’s ?


We could make a new movie : Breakfast at Trinh’s ?


Trinh definitively is a good student of Tho 🙂…One of Tho’s teachings is : Feed the People…

All our life is about brotherhood and sisterhood, about community and where can this manifest in a very immediate and concrete daily practice ? …eating together…feeding each other :  body soul and spirit


Cooking is one of Tho’s passions and cooking for friends and family one of his greatest joys ! All those who come to my house know this and have experienced this ! Aaaaaahhh his vegetarian pho!!!!

I am more "offering my kitchen for you to cook" ha ha ...I love eating the food the friends cook in my kitchen! 


It is actually the Guru of Ram Dass who gave this advise to one of his students who asked him : what should I do to reach enlightement…and the Teacher said : Feed the people


Feed the poor, poor and hungry in body and mind !


This morning we had such a delightful breakfast party at Trinh’s house…Her big heart, courageous energy, her capacity to GIVE to share and to create space for others and to "feed everyone" definitively was there during our "breakfast at Trinh's ! There was a warm "free flow" of getting together: I love it when people sit together for a while, move on to another table , the flow of friendship : who ever is with you at this moment as just the right person to BE with ! 

The flow of abundance and trust is the key !


We have received a very deep teaching a few weeks ago by Tho about how consciousness arrises…through a clear « mind map ». I had heard Thay teach this many times but last summer in Chandolin and now again here in VN by again reflecting on it, I rediscovered the depth of this very fundamental understanding.

It is the "not holding back", hardening, « over identifying » with what we see as « ME » » mine » « my suffering » « my pain and resentment » but letting things arise and let go again and mostly learn to water the seeds that bring about happiness, forgiveness, gratitude…and let the seeds of jealousy, resentment, narrowness that we all also have in us…be recognized…but let them go again to make space for the seeds of happiness and to water very carefully the seeds in our consciousness that we wish to grow so they can heal us and others


Here a poem I wrote for TTG team for our sharing evening with love


I can see

Sovereignty in your smile

Slowly, mindfully

You walk and offer your care in every detail 


I can hear

Your laughter, your joyful scream and chatter

Flying up to my balcony

You bring hope and life to us all


I can smell

Your perfume of freshness

Cleaning as an art

You bring wellbeing and for this we thank you


I can taste 

Your love in every plate

Cooking baking sharing a meal

What else do we need ?


I feel home

In your kind embrace

Warm, close, comforting

Your friendship is my anchor
