What does it take?

What does it take to stop the killing in Syria, the posturing of the USA or North Korea or any other nation, or to bring sanity to the Israeli occupation and degradation of what is left of the native Palestinians? How many other situations around the world and in our own countries need addressing, and what does it take to do so?

One answer is space of mind. A breath, a moment, a pause allows one to see what one is doing and at least be cognizant of who and what is in motion. It’s a start that anyone, everyone, can do. Create space in one’s mind. Mindfulness. Or from the ancient Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, “Yama is. It is irrespective of race, place, time or emergency.” Yama is harmlessness, truthfulness, continence with one’s emotions and passions, and freedom from greed and avarice.

I posted a series of meditation instructions on Creating the seat for Awareness on the Practice of Living Awareness blog. Building upon that we are in a further of that training with the Waves of Mind, and elongating the space between thoughts and ultimately sustaining meditative states. This training is free, online, and is the whole Practice of Living Awareness. Humanity needs each person to cultivate mindfulness in new and expanded ways. We are killing ourselves and our planet. Please meditate. Do so daily and expand your capacity of Awareness. Awareness-Being is an unstoppable power.
