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.

"I have come to know that thoughts, like water, will stay on course if we make a place for them to go. Otherwise, our thoughts follow the course of least resistance, always seeking the lower levels. Probably the greatest challenge and the most difficult thing you will face in mortal life is to learn to control your thoughts. In the Bible it says, as a man ‘thinketh in his heart, so is he’ (Prov. 23:7). One who can control his thoughts has conquered himself. As you learn to control your thoughts, you can overcome habits, even degrading personal habits. You can gain courage, conquer fear, and have a happy life. "

— Boyd K. Packer
