''The source of sorrow is the pride of saying ''I''
fostered and increased by false belief in self.
To this you may say that there's redress,
But meditation on no-self will be the supreme way."
A few weeks ago, Fina picked up a mirror, gave it a good look, then pointed to her face in the mirror, and yelled, "Fee!"
As exciting as it was to see her identify herself by name for the first time, a part of me sank, knowing how much difficulty will come along with it. I felt almost as if I'd failed her in some way, even though I realized, realistically, there's no other way.
