Deep Listening Meditation, February 6, 2018
“We are always connected – to past, to future, to others, to objects, to air, earth, sky. Every thought, every emotion, every action, every moment of time has multiple causes and reverberations – tendrils of culture, history, hurt and joy that stretch out mysteriously and endlessly. As with us, so with everything; all things influence one another. This is how the world appears, shimmers and shifts, moment by moment.”
