Good morning, JMJM,

You said: "she has learned to give, to give, to give, to serve, to serve
and serve. She just fulfilled each moment
as always and more each day."

Was Viki ever-so-slightly resentful of this situation, or did Viki
rejoice in the opportunity afforded her by cultural mores and her family
to engage in the unconditional love of the 'meditation of service', with
a view to eradicating her ego?

Did Viki ask for help to be liberated from her predicament, or did the
congregation in their wisdom and compassion proceed to be a light unto
Viki and tell her what was good for her?

Good morning All,

Viki has been meditating with us for over 10 years now. Through out her
journey, she has learned to give, to give, to give, to serve, to serve
and serve, while her husband, Dr. Tracy Lee with an upbringing of a
Chinese husband, does no house chores whatsoever. Similar to my father
and my grandpa. Viki did not complain. She just fulfilling each moment
as always and more each day.

Last week, Viki shared with us with joy, that after twenty years of
marriage. Tracy finally took the initiative to cook dinner every day,
after he realized that he is home much earlier than Viki, because she
has more work to do at the office.

Because of it, I share the lesson that I have learned. From time to
time you may have heard that I spoil my wife bad. I do things most of
the husbands are not willing to do, because they consider it beyond
their duty. The secret of doing more than asking for, actually results
in my own liberation.

A lot of times, I have to get up in midst of an exciting Laker's game to
wash dishes. I have to swallow my ego to say or to do things my father
would look down upon for not being a man, meaning against my own

The truth that I have learned is that, fulfilling every moment, or do
more as needed, actually liberate myself from all mental construct of
who I am and who I should do, or be, or think. I am capable to do
anything at any time now. Yes, I am free finally.

"Isn't that so?" I asked Tracy. He smiled and nodded.

"You practice and witness." my Teacher would say. "Life is in your own
hand. I am just a tour guide."
