There is mostly only believing.

Everyone believes something. Some people think they know, but in fact, it is all beliefs. We can know very little. Especially when it comes to philosophies and religions. ⁠ So, you can believe there is a God, you can believe there is not a God. You can believe humanity cannot thrive without religion, you can believe that no one needs or benefits from religion. ⁠ I believe that Free Will allows us to choose to believe things, to test beliefs, to evolve wiser beliefs as our understanding and...

"You're the one who's rude first!"

In cultures where courtesy and 'face' are of greatest value, this is a vital justification for violating the rules of courtesy. It is the simple confrontation between two people, and the more complex ones involving whole clans, whole countries. Here's the thing: Rudeness is always a matter of perception; Perceptions are always a matter of expectations; Expectations are the result of social/cultural programming. Unconsidered programming determines how we react emotionally, feeling entirely... Sign in to see full entry.

Walking Meditation

Meditation does not always have to sitting down, feet on the floor (running energies) or folded in a lotus position (TM). It doesn't always have to be passive. Once one has a sense of one's own experience of the meditative state, "walking meditation" becomes a practical solution to the problem of having, or taking no time to sit quietly for an hour or half an hour, or even 20 minutes once or twice a day. There are several variations of meditative technique that are called walking meditation, and... Sign in to see full entry.

NEXT TIME...

Next time, I want a life in more dimensions. Not just for- and backwards, Not bound so tight to time. I want to live not only walking on the earth but soaring, eagle-high, or flitting among leaves and boughs, or swiftly coursing distances between the trees, the rooftops, the ledges of great canyons, coasting on warm rising airs... Or I will live more slowly, cruising with the waves and diving deep and deeper into the pressing dark... I'll go leaping towards the sky to crash back down again with... Sign in to see full entry.

Meditation journal: Wednesday

I missed it yesterday, and all day I was a little regretful about that. That, in itself, is progress! There was a time I knew I should practice what I know is good for me, but I just didn't wanna! It has taken years to understand this resistance, and now finally, to get past it. It comes with realizing that the formulas for meditation that I was taught were, for me, obsolete. It was like still having to write using that special lined paper used in first grade to help kiddies learn to write. It... Sign in to see full entry.

Hello, Me!

This morning when I sat to meditate, again on the front deck, though it's quite a bit cooler today, I sat comfortably with my feet on the floor, my hands apart and resting in my lap. I closed my eyes. I said hello to my feet, their numb parts and the sensitive ones, giving them both some love and gladness for all they do and have done for me. I continued, greeting and appreciating my legs, and hips and all the way up... I greeted my muscles and bones and ligaments and all... my blood and other... Sign in to see full entry.

Meditation

Yesterday, the day after that marathon tea-party, I thought to ground myself, and found that it wasn't quite happening. That's when I considered that perhaps after the long hanging-out with a fairly intense and also energy-sensitive but untrained person, I should have done some clean-out meditation. So, I went out on the deck with my coffee, sat there near the dovelings, and meditated for the first time in a very long time. (Why does anyone, equipped with skills and tools for self-care, simply... Sign in to see full entry.

A summing up

Imagine if religions of the world had never taught that bodies should conform to spiritual truths and realities. Imagine if religions had left the physical aspects of life to physicians and scientists, and stayed focused on spiritual health and well-being. It isn't true of all religions, of course, but the ones most in our awareness as the descendents of Europeans, with religions based in interpretations and translations of the Bible's Old and New Testaments, and the Koran. I have not studied... Sign in to see full entry.

I Am Not White: a first draft.

I am not white... Not white, but tones of pink of gentle shades of tawny with constellations on my skin of greater and lesser magnitudes of browns. My eyes are blue or sometimes more like grey. It's a mood thing or a product of surroundings and ecologies. My blood is red as bright as anyone's. My hair has lived through sun-touched gold and lightish, dullish brown, and through fads of colors unnatural And come to white and grey and a touch of aqua for the fun of it! The heart of my heart pulses... Sign in to see full entry.

From the beginning of life on Earth...

...every one of us, every child of every mother, is the latest of a successful line of evolution. And every girl is descended through a straight line, mothers all the way. That is a very, very long line! Every one of us, an iteration of the Divine expressed in flesh. And for some of us, this is where Science meets the Divine, and they go down the road together, holding hands. Sign in to see full entry.
