  • FOCUS YOU MUST: Our rituals cannot save us from anguish, they can only help us face down whatever comes next

    In the beginning was The Ritual, my pre-emptive strike against pandemic isolation and fear. That first morning of e-school in March 2020, two months before my husband Marco would lose his job, I called my tween twins to the living room to share a word of the day: Al-tru-ism (noun). Next, a poem that I’d seen circulating online, followed by a mindful minute from the Insight Timer app on my phone. We will ace this lockdown, I told myself.

  • RAISE THE VOLUME ON YOUR SOUL’S VOICE: Live a life that is full, bright and abundant

    I believe learning to listen to your soul’s voice is one of the most essentially important skills to acquire mastery of. What I refer to as your “Soul Voice” is the voice inside of you that lights you up. It’s the voice that reminds you of your most cherished and sweetest memories, and all that you love and are passionate about. It’s also the voice that tells you honestly when you can do better, without criticizing you.

20 Seconds of Silence:
A Protest Against The Noise

At This Moment In Time,
We would Like To Stage A Protest

This Is A Protest Against Noise.

The noise I am talking about is the noise that continually Comes from the TV, the radio, newspapers, magazines, The Internet, Twitter, and ourselves.
Noise that goes to the drumbeat of war,
Noise that breeds ignorance’
Noise that stirs up hatred, inciting anger and violence,
Noise that is meant to instill fear into everyone…
Men, Women, and Children.
Noise that distorts the truth,
Noise that separates and creates walls between people,
Noise that pits human beings against one another…
Man against man, country against country.
And these noises can always be found…
Coming from the TV, the radio, newspapers, magazines,
The internet, Twitter, and even ourselves.
NOW…
The way we stage this protest…
Is for 20 Seconds, we just deal with some silence.
But the key to this protest,…
Is that during this 20 Seconds of Silence,
The Key is…that there is complete silence.
Meaning…no mental activity what so ever.
WE CAN START THAT PROTEST RIGHT NOW.
(After 20 seconds has elapsed)
I would like to thank you, for participating with me in this protest against the noise.

The Power of Silence Is Golden

This protest is a reminder,
Of what’s coming at us, each and every day
And what we can do.
We can change the channel,
We can lower the volume
Or better yet, we can turn it all off
We can turn it off and
Focus on what’s inside each and every one of us,
Something that that noise
Will never, never, never tell you.
And what’s inside each and every one of us is…
Some peace and harmony,
Joy and happiness,
Love and compassion,
Prosperity and abundance,
And physical well-being.
It’s all inside each and every one of us.
But… If we continue day in and day out,
Listening to, soaking up, digesting
And believing in all of this noise.
We’ll Beg TO Differ.

SILENCE IS GOLDEN

BY ALAN WATTS
Alan Watts’ ideas and philosophy have primarily eastern roots which through his talks and lectures he ever so eloquently presents to a western audience. In this video Alan Watts talks about the continuous chatter that goes on in our minds. He explains to his audience what all they could experience (or not experience) if they simply stopped talking to themselves. Alan Watts also explain the real purpose of meditation and the process one can undertake to reach a meditative state.
