Life is full of change. The way we respond to it defines us. My personal change? After decades of involvement in an industry that afforded me financial success (isn't that what we all chase?) my life changed. I was forced to choose between outside apparent success and internal chaos although at the time I did not realize the connection between the two. Sleep and diet were effected and my outlook on life was not the same. So I made my life changing decision and walked away.
I began a search for something that resembled calm. I read every book by the Dalai Lama and researched Buddhism. Not on a quest for religious belief but more a process that may lead me to internal peace and tranquility. I had heard that these things existed, saw the word "Nirvana" but had no idea what to do to achieve it. I remembered from my younger days seeing a picture of the Beatles with the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and the proverbial light bulb went off. Could this be the answer? I started a regimen of stretching exercises, walking, adjusted my diet and researched meditation. Each day got a little easier and I started to feel better.
Today I meditate daily and continue to take care of myself. I try to stay in the moment and enjoy every breath and step that life gives me. I realize its about the journey and some days are harder than others. I try and get through the day achieving more good than bad not only in my life but in the lives of those around me. So when the opportunity to open Revitalize presented itself I knew it was my journey and a perfect fit. I have received my certification as a Meditation Guide and can now pass along this gift to others. Hopefully you will join us on this journey. Thank you for your time and Namaste.
