As you may already know from reading my blog over the past several months, I am committed to finding more peace in life. This commitment to find inner peace has lead me down a path that I never would have expected: learning about, practicing and teaching meditation. In order to fully embrace this passion in my life, I have decided that this will be my last post in Alzheimer's Spirit. I am moving forward in making a difference in a new way which naturally builds on my past and aligns with my future dreams. I want to help people find more peace from within, and have started The Compassionate Mind as a way to educate people about meditation and train those that are interested in learning the powerful yet simple techniques.
When I reflect on the relationship between my long and fulfilling career in nursing, working with people experiencing dementia, and I my new passion and focus on meditation, I ask myself, "how are these two very different things related?" The answer is now very clear to me. Dementia taught me that all that really matters is the moment, and that when we're not living in the moment, we suffer. Dementia taught me that I wasn't very good at living in the moment, and tended to focus most of my attention on the future. My meditation practice is now teaching me how to live more successfully by being present for my life. I want to share that with others, because my life mission has always been about alleviating suffering.
I would be honored if you visited my new website, left me a comment and signed up to follow my new blog.
I wish you love and many peaceful moments!!
