Finding Your Post.
You may question what you were – or were not – taught growing up.
You may not feel that having or choosing your spiritual path is a task worthy of your time or even necessary. After all, you already have enough to do every day, without adding one more thing.
The difficulty with not discovering your beliefs is when loss, death and grief arrive you have nothing to guide you through this turbulent time.
And grief is coming.
My 103-year-old friend Minnie felt she didn’t have much wisdom to offer when it came being prepared and grief and death. She was so wrong. When we discussed our death-phobic society and I asked what we might be missing, she looked at me with her generous smile and gentle blue eyes and said,
“We all need some sort of post, something inside to hang onto.”
And there it was: the piece I was looking for.
Minnie was right. We all need something internally to hang onto when everything else is falling apart. It has to be something within, not a person, not your status, a pet or thing.
It has to be something that you can hang onto no matter what.
The most important thing you can do to prepare for losses and challenges is to find your post –
your religion, your spirituality, yoga, music, painting, nature – or whatever it may be.
Something you can always count on.
Your Post: that internal something that you can hang onto
– no matter what –
in times of despair.
Find Your Post. And Hold Onto It.
