Due to Covid, we started online chanting sessions every evening to bring peace and strength. One of the members asked if a friend could join who is elderly and having health issues. Group was open to all; therefore, the lady joined and became a regular. One day she messaged me and asked if we could speak. We spoke for a while, and she thanked me as the sessions were helping her. She shared a lot of innermost personal experiences which had caused her health issues. There was not much I could do, so I listened and suggested she work on forgiveness and gratitude. Often the pain we hold on to is the root cause of suffering. We ended our conversation with a positive outcome.
Later she messaged to let me know that she felt like she was talking to her mother and feeling so relieved. It made me realise how important it is for everyone to be able to express themselves regardless of age.
There is a great listener who is part of every conversation.
