I have obtained what is said to be the best English translation of the Dhammapada [translated by the Venerable Ananda Maitreya in collaboration with Rose Kramer]. As of March 5, 2013, I am beginning my study on the Buddha's teachings and I intend to transform my existence to one of enlightenment, and above all else, peacefulness. My current lifestyle [a whirlwind of emotions and stressful experiences] is simply not going to work anymore.
I am having a baby girl in July! Her entrance into the world is the primary reason for my big push for positive change. I want to be all that I can be, so that I may teach her to be all that she can be.
