My $900 Realization

It seems that when I attempt to improve myself I bump into guilt, hard! As in when I backed into a monolithic concrete parking pillar. I was going to a class in DC put on by another instructor, and was parking in the hotel parking lot. The left rear panel was crushed and the light cracked. Nine hundred dollars later I asked my inner family. “Why? Why is my inner family showing this experience to me? Shouldn’t we be pleased that I’m looking at the Self, paying attention, taking responsibility for everything that comes up for me? Perhaps the number of my perceived transgressions is incalculable? I believe I have earned the blame I dole out? I get too angry and frustrated?”

Peace Begins With Me

The events of the past few days were upsetting to me. I spent a good deal of time in meditation, silently asking my Teacher: how can I feel better about this? How can I help create a loving world/country/community/home? The Teacher in me responds when all goes quiet, the chatter stops, and I turn inward.

He Said, He Said

He had nothing to lose by his operatic performance, after all, they are just U.S. senators. After this formality, they don’t mean much. He’s taking his cues from the big guy, who’s style is attack, attack, attack. The big guy isn’t his boss, of course, but, unlike Comey, he understands the winks. The meaningful eye contact. The way the big guy grasps his elbow.

“Crazytown,” Indeed!

Practitioners of the beautiful Self I-Dentity through Ho’oponopono® learn to take 100% responsibility for all of our experiences, simply because we are experiencing them. They are not the shenanigans of some other folks out there behaving badly. Our experiences are fully, 100% ours. In all situations, we can choose to respond with love to our experiences, and to firmly decline the emotions of fear, anger and blame.

Take It Easy

I forgot to post some of my pictures from last Saturday’s Women’s March in New York City. It was a truly glorious day. Women, men, kids–families of all kinds–enjoyed the warm sun and even warmer camaraderie. We were people who had different agendas and perspectives, but who came together under an all-encompassing theme: We Can (and Must) Do Better Than This...

The Fear of Meditation

I have come to love Fear. I don’t know if I actively seek it out, but when it does show up in my experience I can meet it in Peace: “Hello dear friend, what are you here to teach me today?” When I choose an openness to learn—and to understand—I feel an expansion within me that accommodates this powerful emotion. This is so different from the contraction I would formerly feel when Fear visited me...

My Peace, my practice, my responsibility

In my meditation this morning, I was aware of the tsunami off the coast of Alaska that appeared to be threatening the West coast. I focused on my Peace, the Peace of I AM within me. I became aware that these events, these threatened populations are in me, and I breathed and meditated for all of it. I am aware that right here and now, the tsunami is in me...

Meditation in the time of X

For more than a year I have been stunned by the words and deeds of our President. Apart from the current criminal investigation that touches him, his behavior is a bummer. It’s pretty clear that no monument or national holiday will ever honor him. And no American will ever refer to him as dignified or principled. But my experience of him and his presidency is what concerns me most. I am a meditator, and I need not concern myself with this turbulence...
