"If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough."
How are you?
The year is charging towards its mid-point, and millions are taking to the streets. There is a new conversation afoot (or rather on the table again) - long overdue...No matter if you have been discriminated due to your skin colour, or the country you were born in, or your background, your gender or not, you will feel the collective pain and rage in your heart. It is probably reverberating at some level in your cells.
Because we are one human body - a "school", "tribe" or "herd" of beings that all feel each other - we are all connected and what affects one of us affects us all - it is just more comfortable to ignore that truth, sometimes...
And while it is important to take civil action, and see to it that laws change, it is equally important to look within - into the texture of our own bodies and minds.
And find in the depths of our perfect being the love for ourselves. Only then will we be able to hold space for whatever is happening and act towards the outside with compassion and from a place of love. This does not mean that we accept and tolerate all behaviours, nor that we sit on our couch and do nothing, but that we again and again take a step back, a deep breath, observe and try to find space for empathy and compassion in our hearts.
In this week's practices, we will be attempting to look at the black and white - the truth within ourselves, the simple light, the lurking shadows - and allow for stagnation to release itself, set clear boundaries and move with the beautiful loyalty of our breath.
From moment to moment, present, clear and loving.
I hope to see you there.
With love, all ways

“Why is racism so sticky, so unrelentingly persistent, even in the face of legal and structural reform and after many years of astute scholarship? I do not pretend to have the answers. But I hope we might surround ourselves with possibilities for being otherwise—that we can tell stories that open up new ways of acting with the world.”
–Bayo Akomolafe, “When You Meet the Monster, Anoint Its Feet”
