Jeph and I attended and volunteered our energies to the Science and Nonduality Conference this past weekend. I am glad to have experienced it and grateful for the insights and food for thought/contemplation.
What resonated, through my lens:
All of us – people, creatures, elements, the whole earth, sun/moon/stars/planets – are connected. We Are All One.
I volunteered for a daylong at Spirit Rock this past weekend. It was my first time volunteering there, first daylong, first time doing walking meditation, and first time practicing lovingkindness. A lot of firsts in one day!
I made my first visit to Spirit Rock last month with the intention of getting a feel for the place and community and seeking guidance on my spiritual path. As I sat there, breathing steadily, tuning in to my body and energy, and consciously letting go of any tension I was holding, I realized what a gift it is to simply Be, to allow ourselves the time and space to slow down, breathe, and release.
Yesterday I fell down, and it hurt. But it also woke me up a little bit, and that’s a good thing. I recognized it as a teachable moment – teaching myself: Pay Attention, Be Focused and Present.
