Your comment got me thinking, Vicky. Was my story uplifting, or was it really just about giving up? For me - and I admit, as the author, I'm completely biased - it's the former. But let me try to explain why I think that. In India, I finally realized that I needed to stop measuring myself against the experiences of other people. Instead of beating myself up about my meditation blocks, I accepted what methods of reflection work for me for now. (Maybe that will change in the future.) In India, I finally was able to let go and be at peace with myself. And to me, that's a pretty uplifting experience. I had hoped to convey that feeling in my article. Thank you for reading it.
