In my novel What’s Left, one of Cassia’s big discoveries is how much her father had changed in the span from high school to his return to the college town a few years after his graduation.
Among the passages I cut from the final version is this:
No, I guess Baba takes it all in stride because of all the healing and growth that had happened within him since Nita introduced him to Tibetan practice.
Not everyone, of course, looks deeply into the people and the world around them. Some seem oblivious to the cosmic harmony or greater good that could be shared.
Too many, in fact, remain blatantly superficial, considering the threats now before human existence.
But I’m preaching. I’ll apologize.
There are other options, as I discovered when I took up yoga.
Who or what have you seen helping people you know change for the better? Is there any practice or teaching you’d recommend?
