The day I was asked to write my story of change, I had a quiet time where I interospected about various aspects of myself. About how LMAD has shaped my life. It gave me a clear picture of what I was and what I am.
The day I entered Asia Plateau I had no clue what was all it about. I was sent there, told that the experience was wonderful. I was introduced to my inner voice. Instead of experiencing something wonderful, I found myself filled with greed, selfishness and hatred. The Jar exercise gave a clear picture of the blockers that I had and how it had been affecting me. It showed me a clear picture how ego can influence an individual.
At my early age, I was taught by my mom, "There is nothing worse than breaking someones heart." and I realized that I had been doing exactly that with many peope.
My inner voice gave me the courage to seek for their forgiveness and also rebuilt my relation with them. There has been phenomenal change in the relationship I share with my family, relatives and friends.
Minor incidents that occured to me during the conference taught me how even small things affected my life. For instance, "The day I was going to travel to Panchgini, I got late due to unforeseen factors. I asked my father to help me reach my bus stop at 10 in the morning. He asked no questions and ensured I reached on time. In return, I gave him a hug which made his entire day."
Sometimes in life, you need someone who will hold your hand tight and will not be afraid to reprimand you when you stray into the wroong path. This conference also gifted me a true mentor who ensured that I will excel in life.
The balloon exercise has always helped me with my anger and ego. Now I believe saying a "sorry" or a "thank you" won't cost me a lot but might difuse the situation in hand. I would like to conclude by saying that the inner voice is like a true friend giving one true advice. I really thank LMAD for shaping me up and thank Viral sir for this wonderful change in my life.
