For those who know me well, I have often had family issues. Well, in razorblading my eyes open and seeing MY part, I see hope where there was no hope. Movement towards happiness. Which can only happen in baby steps. I hope I can be disciplined enough for baby steps. I usually take impatient giant steps which crush and sabotage. This type of practice, a living meditation is really the only way though I have come to find. I meditated 22 days in a row recently and it allowed me to be present in some serious pain. It was a strong reminder for me that being present and paying attention to everything is the way to strengthen character. Meditation, ie, paying attention to the present moment, is a core exercise for character development.
