Today I know I have a choice, to focus on the conflict or find another response…..

My dear sister,

I know your pain. Please don't believe yourself so far from me that you deny this. I’ve been where you are now.

I began studying various spiritual traditions and practices, but found that even the most well-intended of them lacked the full, original, unadulterated insight that I needed.

From my journal. Rambling but honest...
