Election Day Meditation

This meditation is designed to give you space, to relieve stress, promote well being, and to encourage you to be embodied and heartful on this day of the General election. To be fully human and in yourself is where change begins. I hope this small contribution is of help.

I'll be recording a video each day of this Election Week as a way to share presence, love, and unity, and to help create space in our hearts from the pushing and pulling of the conditioned world.

It's important to vote - so please do so this week from the deepest place of love and presence within you, not from reaction or fear.

Expressing Your Life In These Times

In this video we reflect on expressing our life and unique beauty in the world regardless of the sphere of conditionality that is the world of politics and opinion, the answer of course is to go deeper through the doorway of your own life in this moment. 

I'll be recording a video each day of this Election Week as a way to share presence and love, and to help create space in our hearts from the pushing and pulling of the conditioned world.

LOVE THE EARTH AND SUN AND THE ANIMALS

A pause for a moment of beauty during Election Week

John reads from the preface to Whitman's 'Leaves of Grass'

'Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to everyone that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul; and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body‚Ķ' 

Walt Whitman, preface to Leaves of Grass, 1855
