A. To make use of your circumstances in the way that you are doing is a very skilful thing to do. Of course, to be able to sit regularly would be a better situation to be in, but that is not possible for you just now. In your case, having dependants gives you the golden opportunity to nurture the fundamental reality of Dharma practice, which is one of selfless action. To live your life for others who depend on you can open you up to yourself in a very direct way that is often denied to those of us who are single and don’t have to live our lives for others. Us single folk can easily become blinkered and fall into the trap of self-indulgence.
