I came to know about IofC LMAD when one of my father’s colleagues told us about it. I have always been excited when it comes to being a part of camps and when I checked IofC’s website, I was all set to be a part of the Youth Conference of 2014.
The values I learnt at the Youth Conference made sense and I realized that I was taking the people Iin my life for granted and I needed to empathize to understand others; in addition I also need to have a positive outlook towards people.
And to be successful, I needed to be courageous and persistent. At Asia Plateau, I was introduced to quiet time. I never knew how quiet time worked but I was a little aware of the effects of practicing it.
I feel that quiet time puts me in a different frame of mind and adds value to my personality and it puts me on the path towards the achievement of peace of mind and contentment as well. It also guides me towards attainment of higher level of intelligence. Sometimes it is difficult to accept certain things I discover about myself but I also learnt through quiet time that acceptance of the current version of myself is my first step towards making a better version of myself.
The journey that began in 2014 continues and my pursuit towards a greater version of myself gives me hope that I can accomplish great things.
