Thank you so much, Ta-Tsu-wa and Edwin. Your answers are matter for our thoughts for many years...no, I'm not exagerating... it's just that, to put meditation as the still center of our lives, something that may give us an opportunity to be more peaceful and compassionate in this world full of "rage and tempest". I'm in LF7, and living a very difficult moment in my family- my niece, a young woman is terminally ill - and I'm surprised at my own tranquility, and how I'm still capable of helping myself, and other members of the family. At least, for the moment... for I don't know what's coming next in terms of suffering of my niece. I hope I can deal with it. And LF is and will be certainly an immense help.
