At a time when the world is moving, changing, and even revolting at a pace that seems unprecedented, many people search for meaning, whether within or outside of ourselves, something that enables us to make sense of the world around, something to keep rooted. We read, we ponder, we pray and meditate, we do just about everything we can to find peace, that ultimate resting
place called nirvana.
At age 31, feeling rather spent in religious theory and methods, it finally dawned on me that I have been blessed my entire life with a divine presence, one in the form of my aunt, a shining light who has been my source of comfort, strength and now … inspiration. With little education and having to support 5 children on her own, she has had to struggle in life. Yet she remains as she has always been, “soft” and serene, receiving whatever life has to offer with a quiet acceptance, and making the best of whatever life
offers, all the while praying for and helping others selflessly.
How is it that my aunt has maintained her composure, fortitude and loving-kindness when so many others more “schooled” have failed or not kept up? It seems quite simply to be the force of abiding faith, the practice of basic truths, and to just be and let be.
My aunt has made every moment lived a dedication to life. She is living testimony of the beauty of a “simple” life. I begin mine with this dedication of love to my aunt, my Ah Bor …
May all beings be well and happy.
