Throughout this program, my grandfather's core philosophy rang in my head and was reinforced by the discussions in "Holding Life Consciously." Before heading off to college, he repeated the YMCA mantra of "Mind, Body, and Spirit" to me; emphasizing the importance of maintaining all three aspects of existence no matter what your context. As I move through life, I find different avenues of furthering myself in these three broad categories, and somehow I've found no other template for happiness more successful than the constant pursuit of improving mind, body, and spirit. I stay active physically, constantly pursue knowledge, and explore methods of communicating with, and expressing, my inner-most spiritual entity.
