This is an article from a 1999 edition of Body and Soul Magazine, from a chapter in Roger Housden’s book Sacred America. Dale Borglum and Roger recognized that though I was in a ‘Blue Collar” job I utilized my job to fuel my spiritual practice. Looking back, I smile.
This article came out during the absolute darkest time of my life. My do-it-yourself haircut, goodwill outfit, no money, no food, arms and hands that wouldn’t work, trying to prepare for my lama’s visit from Nepal who insisted to stay with me despite all the above “because all that matters is your warm heart”-well-now I can see the blessing of this time and how it led me to now. I hope it is an inspiring read for you, and apologize in advance for it being in 4 parts!
