The Lazy Yogi

Non-Procrastination
Soul Mutation
Ferret Migration

A:

We don’t yet know why this happened but I don’t need to wait to be told why humans kill each other. It comes down to the fundamental ignorance with which so many of us live. We kill our brothers and sisters because we think of them as strangers. We don’t understand how we are inseparably one with the people who look different from us, like rivers mixing into one another. 

Ignorance on the inner always makes for violence on the outer. No one deserves it but we are all victims of the growing pains of humanity maturing into itself. 

This is the time we either grow into a place of love and acceptance or allow divisiveness to be etched on our collective tombstone. 

Don’t add to the count of victims by becoming one yourself. Release your anger, release your hate. Touch base with the sky behind the clouds and bring the gift of tonglen to a world that so desperately needs your love. 

When I heard the news today, I immediately let go of everything that was happening around me. Then I started practicing tonglen

I inhaled the suffering, the pain, the confusion, and the various reactions of everyone touched by the bombings. Then I exhaled peace, calm, healing, stillness, love, and spaciousness. Over and over. 

Amidst a time of such charged and frenzied reactions, there needs to be an opening of tranquil love and compassion to allow healing to begin. 

Namaste, my friend. Much much love
