Whenever I find myself spinning because of something “bad” or “wrong” that seems to be going on in my world, I revert back to spiritual principle – what do I know, at the deepest level of my being, as the spiritual Truth behind whatever is showing up?

Managing the competing needs of a demanding career and a newborn proved to be too much and at the age of 6 months my father took me to Pakistan to live with my paternal grandparents.
