#69 - Family is Forever. And Chosen Family Counts too.
my heart is overflowing!
This has to be one of the purest, most beautiful meditations on love and unity that I’ve read from you, Brother. Thank you for sharing this. When Daughter shared that she’s glad ya’ll didn’t outgrow the names, I about lost it. Such a precious moment of gratitude and the realization that LOVE and CONNECTION is eternal.
Been reading Zen Buddhist texts lately. A short and sweet work that I highly recommend is True Love by Thich Nhat Hanh. In it he describes a necessary component for anyone exploring and progressing through The Way (their way). Everyone at a point needs a Sangha, or practice community, other fellow travelers who practice The Way, to share experiences of love, conflict, resolution, clarification, peace. Other people equipped with honesty and bravery who wish to slay dragons together or become lost together or to help climb mountains together or just practice and enjoy love together, in all of its simplicity.
Daughter is such a strong, lovely, zany, member of your Sangha. I adore it and through your words I was able to be there with you two. Thank you, Brother.
