Just finished a ten day vipassana meditation retreat. I feel it was really valuable for me. I learned a lot about myself, my cravings, and my aversions and how to approach them with more balance. Also, opened my eyes to just how much of an addict my entire personality is. If vipassana (and the 12 steps and pretty much any spiritual practic) works...I'll be no more, dead (mosiah 3:19 matt 16:25). Scary.

Girlie, I thought about you alot while sitting in indian style for 10 and a half hours a day. I'm bummed you peaced. I hope you read this. I loved you.

"By emulating the Master, who endured temptations but “gave no heed unto them,” we, too, can live in a world filled with temptations “such as [are] common to man”. Of course Jesus noticed the tremendous temptations that came to him, but He did not process and reprocess them. Instead, He rejected them promptly. If we entertain temptations, soon they begin entertaining us! Turning these unwanted lodgers away at the doorstep of the mind is one way of giving “no heed.” Besides, these would-be lodgers are actually barbarians who, if admitted, can be evicted only with great trauma."
