|“They (babies) don’t get hung up in thinking or lost in theoretical musings about this or that. They are not attached to things being a certain way. They are not always consistent. One day does not necessarily have to be like the next. Their presence and their teachings can help us break through to a direct experience of our true nature, and encourage us to find our own way, now, in this moment. They do this not by telling us how, but by giving us endless challenges that cannot be resolved through thinking, by mirroring life back to us in its fullness, by pointing to wholeness. More than anything, Zen Masters embody wakefulness and call it out of us.” On pages 91-92|

I don't know what's the matter with me these days. . . .
I feel so far from anything resembling harmony. That outward circumstances of our life are okay -- some stresses but nothing major -- and yet I am hanging on by a thread emotionally . . .
Sophie has developed crazy sleeping patterns lately I know she's on the verge of walking, and getting a tooth, and this week had a cold/earache, so that's all part of it. But that doesn't stop me from being very frustrated by night and dragging by day. And there's some kind of grwy cloud that just hangs over me the past couple of weeks for no good reason.
I feel like 'harmony' is right here if I could see it, but I have the wrong glasses on most of the time.

Night weaning. Dh is ready to wean ds from the bed. I'm not. Dh is ready for ds to sleep through the night. Although I am, I'm not ready to wean him from the breast in order to accomplish this. Any words of wisdom from any of you?
