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.

"Freedom from your transgression will come through sincere faith, true repentance, willing obedience, and the giving of self. Why the giving of self? Because selfishness is at the root of your problem. Where selfishness and transgression flourish, the Spirit of the Lord can’t enter your life to bless you. To succeed, you must conquer your selfishness. When your beacon is focused on self, it does little more than blind your vision. When turned outward through acts of kindness and love, it will light your path to happiness and peace. "
