Buddhist meditation and my soul friendship with St. John of the Cross and other Christian mystics have introduced me to a Jesus who is continually appearing and disappearing in my most private thoughts and emotions, in other people, and in the water, trees, and rocks. He is free of any particular form, and the detachment I've learned through meditation has helped me to recognize his formless form. He is my Heart Sutra and, as Grandma taught me, the only one who lives in my heart.
