Gardening Our Thoughts

"Thoughts and ideas are as natural to the human mind as the clouds come and go in the sky. Our mind will grows thoughts as a field grows the seed which fall on it. Our mind creates seed conditions which then unfold and grow into the creation we desire. Our emotions water and nourish the thought causing us to act to manifest them in the world.

Collective Connections

Create connections rather than disconnections

Create belonging rather than separation.

Create co-operation rather than discord.

Every time you open your mouth there is an opportunity to choose to plant fertile seeds of connection or sour seeds of disconnection.

In today's times, we need all the collective connections we can…

Connecting

"Our life is like a vast net connecting us to all other lives on this planet, and each part of this net is linked to all of the rest. The essence of our life is not limited within the confines of our bodies but rather is distributed across all the people and things that we are connected to. To think about our life in a way that treats…

Breathing

"Resting our awareness on the breath, we focus on the present moment, not chasing after memories from the past or speculating about the future. Through practices such as this, inner contentment can grow progressively. Sometimes when we feel a little helpless, or think we lack something, or feel lost, if we remember to focus on our…

“Pity the nation whose people are sheep,

and whose shepherds mislead them.

Pity the nation whose leaders are liars, whose sages are silenced,

and whose bigots haunt the airwaves.

Pity the nation that raises not its voice,

except to praise conquerors and acclaim the bully as hero

Rest in Power, Rep. John Lewis

RIP John Lewis. Your firey sensibility to the injustices of this world compelled you to fearlessly stand up and speak as one powerful, lion-like voice for so many. You will never be forgotten.
