Dear Geshe Michael Roach,
We like to share our story as follows.
We are a small family of 3 members. When my daughter was young, I was very strict on her. I want her to excel and I kept pushing her to do lots of assessment and no play because I want her to make the family proud. My husband travelled frequently out of Singapore for business and I was left alone to give her 100% of my attention.
Then disaster struck in Oct 2014. My daughter snapped and fell into depression. She even had thoughts of suicide. We brought her to the hospital and she was diagnosed with Bulimia Nervosa ( eating disorder) and Emotional Instability. She was admitted into the hospital several times in 2015. And in 2016, she stopped school for one year while undergoing therapy treatment in the hospital. We met a good team of doctors and social workers who kept telling us that family support is very important for her road to recovery. They also made us realise that the family is not in harmony.
During this period, we were introduced to the Diamond Cutter System by our sister-in-law, Chiner.
My husband started to attend study groups with her and learnt the “Pen Story”. He was initially quite skeptical about the term “plant what you want” but then went ahead to try out planting time seed with amazing success. His next important seeds he set to plant are harmony for the family and anti-depression for our daughter. He went on to learn planting different seeds in order to achieve these from Teacher Kelly. Then things started to change at home.
We noticed the family to be more harmonious and our daughter who was so afraid to go to school for a year decided to continue school in 2017. I was amazed and decided to attend study groups myself to learn more about the Diamond Cutter way of seed planting. I also started to practice yoga in one of the study groups and this helps me to balance my Chakra to achieve inner peace. It helps to control my quick temper which is one of my shortcomings.
We are very happy that our family relationships have improved so much and daughter has just completed her O level exams.
We are very grateful how the teachings of the Diamond Cutter System changed our family and will continue to apply them in our daily life.
With gratitude and respect,
Karen Bok and Nai Kim Chuan
