    We all need a steady, rooted, poised and balanced placeto stand otherwise the winds of pain and suffering may uproot the tree of our life. All wisdom traditions strongly emphasizethe significance of contemplation and meditation to work on our inner world and the need to be connected with the outer world of suffering and pain. In order to be whole and fully functioning persons we need to create a balance and rootedness within ourselves.

    I had attended one month retreat for mindfulness meditation and deep contemplation. That was a transformative experience for me. I felt profoundly centered, calm and rooted. I felt at home with me and with others in the retreat.This experience fostered a deep sense ofempathy and compassion in me for others. It was a powerful transformative experience for me.

    Daily practice of mindfulness meditation and self-introspectionhelpme to maintain a balanced and wholesome connectionbetweenmy inner world and outer world, between my "private room" and my "public room."

    I have been standing on, trusting in and not wavering from the truth of "The Rock" since grade school. Yes, we have to stand on something or Someone ..... or, we fall for anything/anyone. (A quotefrom someone). Amen:)
