On Naikan Reflection

This post was written  by Sue Cole


I had to reflect on my father several times before I could see more clearly, before I could put myself in his shoes and walk through my teen years.  Tears of regret prompted me to write this haiku:

Wish I could thank him,

Reflecting on my father.

Sadly it’s too late.

Now I frequently remind myself that the best chance to give thanks is now.  Even in difficult times, I can find at least one reason to give thanks and that changes my outlook.

Thanks, Naikan, and thanks to all who show the way!
