How would you cope if everything was taken away from you? Materially is one thing, but what if you lost almost all control over your body? Could you see it as a blessing and a way to learn?
In 2011 Ronnie Cahana suffered a severe stroke that left him with locked-in syndrome: completely paralysed except for his eyes. While this might shatter a normal person’s mental state, Cahana found peace in “dimming down the external chatter,” and “fell in love with life and body anew.”
This TED talk by his daughter Kitra shares her father’s spiritual journey through this time.
Well worth watching.
