Chalip: Thanks for this great post. I needed those words. I think I have learned more about the dharma and about life through parenting than through anything else. But I've also recognized what a challenge it is, and how totally consuming and absorbing good loving parenting can be. Heedfulness resonates with me, and the dispersal of negative thinking is a challenge when one is constantly worried about the kids, no? Both wonderful things to practice. Thanks again!

Hello Nacho. You will find no disagreement with me... parenting teaches me so many things I would never have learned otherwise... and being a parent does add its unique challenges to practice. And yet it also adds its unique joys. We are blessed.
