I spent most of my teenager years searching...
I suffered from alcoholism, insomnia, & constant anxiety.
You know the feeling you get when you walk into a room and forget what you went in there for? I felt that constantly.
I traveled up and down the east coast of Australia for years.
Picking fruit for a living & sleeping in a tent on the side of many different rivers.
I traveled because I was searching for something, but I didn't know what it was.
I remember the first time I did Falun Gong meditation in far North Queensland.
I felt myself being bathed in a warm energy of calm & content.
It was like a dry riverbed experiencing rain for the first time in decades.
I knew I had found what I had been searching for.
As I look back over the past 10 years of my life, I am so grateful for finding my meditation practice all those years ago. (Or did it find me!?)
I am so grateful for everyone I have met and all the friends I have made along the way as we endeavor to improve ourselves with Truth, Compassion, & Tolerance.
