. . . I am learning the profound benefits of following this path. I am learning how to deal with the
overwhelming emotions of grief, sadness, anger and depression. I am learning how to work with my
mind and respond more sanely in situations that previously triggered my ego. I am learning how much
discipline, diligence, and support are required to develop these life-saving skills. I am learning that I
stand on the shoulders of warriors throughout time who have trained to be of service. And as a
consequence of what I’m learning, I can stay engaged with the world with an open, breaking heart, in
service to the human spirit.
