I saw that worrying had come to nothing and gave it up. And took my old body and went out into the morning, and sang.” ~Mary Oliver
1.How I started to meditate : After 1 year of servicing in Village, I was looking for options to self care and how to in short breath out. I wanted some peace some space and maybe finding some new people. I wanted to step out of my comfort zone and maybe a little bit of me time, and while I was stalking my favorite face book crush I saw a random girl posting for a meditation retreat in coxbazar. Could this be an option to open my sense of Narnia? I asked myself. I took my chances and send that girl a text. Thank you for texting back Samia!
The retreat lead me to meet a new monk who works a organisation called Peace Revolution. And also joined in a fellowship program. Finally I started to meditate regularly.
2.Xmas and how I got my call: I applied for this fellowship and luckily even got called for interview. A very charming man called Diego called and we had some casual discussion.(he asked if i have anything to add for my favour, f finding none I said I’m left handed and he laughed at my face. Ouch!) He told me he will inform me within a week...well month passed, and on the eve of Christmas 2014, i received the invitation letter to join Global Peace on the move,13 fellowship.
Ah those days!
5. Coming back and when i think of meditation : two year ago i lovingly agreed with my mind to give it a break. My soul agreed and i started to meditate. No its not a feeling to change your entire life, and no I’m still not an expert. But the courage, the step i took lead me to many more places. Meditation made room in heart . It’s like that clean up app that removes all the unnecessary cache data that used to keep me up at night. It made space for new love, new friends and most importantly new goals.
