One of my favorite “boomer” bloggers is Lew Richmond. As anyone who has read my book, Safe 4 Retirement: The 4 Keys to a Safe Retirement knows, spirituality plays a vital role in ensuring that you thrive in retirement. Lew is a Buddhist and as those who follow my blogs note, I’m also a big fan of meditation and being open minded about all spiritual journeys. Lew writes his own blog and for Huffington Post. The link below will take you to a recent article on Huff Post/50 which is based upon his book, ‘Aging As A Spiritual Practice‘.
One of my favorite lines from this blog post reminds me so much of what I wrote in my book : “I think that aging is an ideal time for spiritual practice — for growing not only older, but wiser. In other words, “growing older and wiser” is not just a saying, it is an activity. OK, my workshop participants say, but then they ask, What do you mean by a spiritual practice? I have a simple definition, one that transcends any particular religion or faith. I define spiritual practice as “paying close attention to the things that really matter.” ”
Amen, I say. Read Lew below and provide your thoughts.
