Giving, volunteering, has special benefits.

Avoidance has been an issue for me, I have isolated myself too much over the last decade.

My kundalini teacher says we need to be part of the conscious collective, be part of a vibrant community, a support system.

An enormous challenge for us, way out of our comfort zone, this seems the ultimate test for us.

Volunteering for my grandson’s baseball team has brought nuggets of community, connection, and satisfaction.



PTSD disappears when enthralled in their midst.

I am accepted, almost revered as an old pro baseball player.

Even being a little special to a group of 11-year-olds has wrapped me in a soothing blanket.

I am valued and accepted unconditionally.

This coaching has brought a sense of purpose, a desire to share and a much-needed connection to others.

The kids are stoked, improving while I have made new friends with other coaches and parents.

I get lost in their midst sharing my wisdom while chatting with parents and other coaches.

I am part of a live group again.

Something I have avoided rigorously, now brings me connection, purpose and satisfaction.

It is my element, a baseball diamond, I feel the most confident and at ease in this scenario.

Moral of the Story: Find something you love, then find a way to insert yourself.

It is hard to make that first step, to trust enough to take that risk.

It causes healing and growth.

My spirits are lifted and the kids give me gratitude.



Oh that soothes this old man.

My grandson has gained confidence and depends on me being there, that is a wonderful feeling.

He is anxious and feels awkward. I bring him comfort being there, coaching.

What a wonderful feeling, I need more of these feelings.

Happy Healing!

  1. I think we benefit from any activity we become enthralled with.

    Meditation is that at times.

    Sometimes a flower draws me in for a minute or two.

    I would love to have learned a musical instrument as a kid

    Find something that soothes your being and incest time and energy
