That's what the Traditions and Yoga does for me - reminds me to keep giving, even when I feel scared and greedy. I don't mean just service work like planting trees or picking up a newcomer - that's easy giving for me! My greatest challenge is to be kind to the people I live with even when I'm scared there won't be enough food or when they forget to do their chores for the tenth time. My struggle is to stay present and neutral with another person when they cry in front of me, and to stay patient when someone is yelling at me.
2013 has brought me magnificent changes in my body, mind and spirit. I've continued to work the Steps in Alcoholics Anonymous and now Al-Anon as well. I surf and write and play and work... and I have fallen deeply in love in a way that I did not think was possible.
