I got back to recovery on December 4th, 1997. After relapsing with ten years sober in AA, Today I celebrate 17 years without a drink, fix, pill or drug. A friend in the treatment field says that I should have celebrated 30 years on October 21st because the relapse was part of my recovery process.
As you may know, my dogs are my #1 best friends. Zippy is half mini Schnauzer an is 12. He has congestive heart failure. LiLi is a rescue from a puppy mill and is a Mini American Eskimo
Today I woke up and listened to a webcast teaching from my teacher, Chogyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche. We practiced Guru Yoga with thousands of practitioners worldwide. The practice consists of singing the Song of the Vajra, a sacred mantra that takes about 12 minutes to chant.

This side can be harsh and rigid and keeps the “self” from having full, healthy relationships. Another side is open, intuitive and vulnerable.
