In a world currently overwhelmed with social media, digital advances, and fast-paced living, we sometimes race straight past Present and head towards an unknown Future. I admit to the above and, as such, decided to create Sunday SoulJourn as a reminder that life is not a race; it’s a journey.
Join me every Sunday as I reflect, ponder, and contemplate topics that tend to get overlooked as we sprint through life.
2 August 2015
I started this SoulJourn with my youngest sister as a welcome companion. We ventured to the Menlha Kadampa Buddhist Center in Lambertville, NJ for a morning session (Advice for a Happy Life with Prayers for World Peace), then went for lunch, and did some shopping. As we drove along the Delaware Canal, we discussed our current life paths, struggles we’re facing, and swapped advice.
With both of us moving at a fast pace – work, her kids, my writing time, and other appointments – we don’t always make the time to spend together as often as we used to. It was nice to relax, share in a new spiritual adventure (I definitely recommend checking out the Menlha Center’s website), and just have “girl time”.
Today reminded me that I’m surrounded by love, beauty, laughter, and joy every day – I just need to recognize and embrace it!
