Spiritual teachers come in all forms – that’s what I learned today.
It’s 9: 01 PM on day 233 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself a banana for breakfast, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign for a few hours – no luck – feed myself rice and curry for lunch, continue reading A Purloined Life – the first of two books in Stella Cameron‘s Charmed – watch TV, feed myself Batura – deep fried bread – for dinner and watch some more TV.
As you know religion is a huge part of my life but it wasn’t until I ‘met’ Brennan – a ten-year-old boy who is dying of cancer – that I truly understood the meaning of faith every Sunday he goes to church which I find quite astonishing considering the fact that there was a time in my life that I refused to go to church because I was mad at God for ‘taking away my legs’ with that said I would like to thank Brennan for teaching me that faith is choosing to believe in a higher power even in our darkest hour. Has somebody you least expected taught you a lesson that you will never forget?
Are we connecting on Twitter? If not, say hi at http://www.twitter.com/nisha360
if you’ve given to my cause or you can’t give now, please help me by sharing my cause with others. You can tweet about it like my friend Stan Faryna. This is the tweet he uses: @Nisha360 is a brave, smart young woman trying to make a better world for us all. Please help her do an amazing thing. http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/nisha-varghese/nishavarghese
Stan’s very sweet for saying so, but feel free to write what reflects you best.
Thanks to all my friends out there who are helping me make my dream come true: to make a better world for all of us!
