Akalino is studying Taoism
Much like everyone else, I live a life where silence and stillness is a rare and precious commadity. Because I lack this I have developed an illness and am struggling daily with trying to overcome it. Although the illness is not contagious, many people suffer from the very thing that causes it, STRESS!
I have lived a very hard life and have struggled to achieve my life goals. I have successfully bought a home, achieved my bachelors and raised two beautiful kids on my own. Now I am at a point in my life where I would like to accomplish some inner peace. Sure I go for walks and give my thanks for my blessings but I still feel incomplete.
I have realized that what I seek and lack is what is most important…INNER PEACE. I never really focused on myself, rather I have simply focused on making sure everyone around me is happy.
I understand that achieving inner peace requires discipline. That would be my first step. Financial security, although essential does not make me happy. I have just recently returned to school to achieve my Masters in Education which is a change from what I currently do, Casework.
For my health and my future I am going to do everything I can think of to learn to discipline myself and focus on me for a change. I am realizing that it is essential to my future to seek my Nirvana.
