Letting Meaning Flow Into Purpose

 Today, after few weeks I was back home, hosting the meditation in the common room.
I was not sure if anyone would attend, but was glad when there were 3 others who came by and 4 of us together had a silent sitting.
During the discussion, one member shared, how she was taught from childhood, that she is 'replaceable' and that has helped her a lot. Another lady said that she loved all her people so much that death is scary and she never thinks about it. One man stated few words of Gandhi ji - 'Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.' One woman shared, how being close to death, taught one person to release negativity and design a course which helps others do so as well.
Overall, the Awakin circle was a great welcome!
