A Respite

First, thank you to all of my kalyanamitta who sent me words of encouragement: it helped me more than you know. Secondly, I figured it was  only right to report on the flow as much as the ebb. True to my intentions, and limited understanding of the Dhamma, by maintaining my resolve I have been able to see moments of stillness and peace again in my formal meditation that,  at my worst points, I somehow believed were gone for good.

Simply returning to the most basic of breath counting and metta-karuna bhavana recitation has proven very effective in dealing with a scattered and weakened mind so I am thankful for the teachings and exhortations that have always encouraged me to sit no matter what.

May all beings be free from suffering and may they never lose faith in awakening.
