Last year I had a major manic attack at the end of which I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Throughout the manic episode, which lasted several months, I blogged, and, even posted an essay on this site. Now, fully medicated, and stable, I’m learning day by day, how to live a full life despite the illness.
In a blog entry What Happened Part V – An Encounter With the Void, I describe how I stumbled upon meditation – without at first recognizing it as such – to get me through a horrible night. And in an earlier posting on this website, I wrote an essay called The Green Pebble, recalling how the object I used for meditation took on even more meaning for me afterwards as it led me into discovering a link to my father, and, perhaps, a greater sense of spirituality in my own life.
