“We are visitors on this planet. We are here for ninety or one hundred years at the very most. During that period, we must try to do something good, something useful, with our lives. If you contribute to other people's happiness, you will find the true goal, the true meaning of life”.
His Holliness The Dalai Lama
Living in the world today is not easy for anyone especially a young person. Helping a young person develop mindfulness allows that young person become more aware of their emotions, feelings, and environment he/she lives in. Meditation is an excellent tool to help someone develop mindfulness and therefore help that person deal with the vagaries of life.
I have personally benefited from developing a meditation practice. Meditation has helped me to reduce the level of stress in my life, to handle the every day ups and downs of life, and just be more at ease with myself and others. I want to give this gift to others.
Please give the wonderful gift of mindfulness to these young people by donating to the Brooklyn Sit-A-Thon. By giving the gift of mindfulness you will be fulfilling the true meaning of life by helping others.
