Every positive thought, action, and choice of well-being for Earth and all beings is needed this days. For the foreseeable future, one day a month will be set aside for meditation and contemplation focused on the wellness of the world which includes the illumination of humanity’s Path forward in concert with Mother Earth and all her living beings.
August’s day of meditation will focus on loving-kindness. A tree is an example and tutor in what loving-kindness is. A tree has one purpose: to provide whatever as many beings as possible can need, and to do so with ease and complete non-bias. Trees produce daily oxygen and sequester carbon from the atmosphere. They provide habitat to myriad animals (insects, birds, mammals, and often amphibians) who live in, feed from, lay eggs in, roost or nest in, or eat the actual substance of the tree. Trees are a constant demonstration of loving-kindness. This example illustrates that loving-kindness multi-layered when expressed by a human or other type of being.
Due to this day of meditation, Saturday’s regular 7 am MT online practice will not occur. See you at 8 am MT!
A Day of Meditation in Support of Humanity and the World is Saturday, August 8 from 8 am MT to 3 pm MT. Please “arrive” a few minutes early to get settled and be ready to meditate for the world. *All participants will be muted and, please, no video cams.
Though everyone can come and go as necessary for your responsibilities, please try to arrive a few minutes ahead of the schedule because I have to admit each person.
