Inspiration from Thich Nhat Hanh

The English audio is a little difficult to hear, but the message is well worth the effort. This is a video of Thich Nhat Hanh speaking about meditation and the spiritual path on November 13, 2011. So powerful.

Enjoy!

(Special) daily reminder on 11.11.11

“Earth, 114 million years ago, one morning just after sunrise: The first flower ever to appear on the planet opens up to receive the rays of the sun. Prior to this momentous event that heralds an evolutionary transformation in the life of plants, the planet had already been covered in vegetation for millions of years. The first flower probably did not survive for long, and flowers must have remained rare and isolated phenomena, since conditions were most likely not yet favorable for a widespread flowering to occur. One day, however, a critical threshold was reached, and suddenly there would have been an explosion of color and scent all over the planet—if a perceiving consciousness had been there to witness it. […]

Seeing beauty in a flower could awaken humans, however briefly, to the beauty that is an essential part of their own innermost being, their true nature. The first recognition of beauty was one of the most significant events in the evolution of human consciousness. The feelings of joy and love are intrinsically connected to that recognition. Without our fully realizing it, flowers would become for us an expression in form of that which is most high, most sacred, and ultimately formless within ourselves. Flowers, more fleeting, more ethereal, and more delicate than the plants out of which they emerged, would become like messengers from another realm, like a bridge between the world of physical forms and the formless. They not only had a scent that was delicate and pleasing to humans, but also brought a fragrance from the realm of spirit. Using the word “enlightenment” in a wider sense than the conventionally accepted one, we could look upon flowers as the enlightenment of plants. […]

Once there is a certain degree of Presence, of still and alert attention in human beings’ perceptions, they can sense the divine life essence, the one indwelling consciousness or spirit in every creature, every life-form, recognize it as one with their own essence and so love it as themselves. Until this happens, however, most humans see only the outer forms, unaware of the inner essence, just as they are unaware of their own essence and identify only with their own physical and psychological form. […]

So when you are alert and contemplate a flower, crystal, or bird without naming it mentally, it becomes a window for you into the formless. There is an inner opening, however slight, into the realm of spirit. This is why these three “en-lightened” life-forms have played such an important part in the evolution of human consciousness since ancient times; why, for example, the jewel in the lotus flower is a central symbol of Buddhism and a white bird, the dove, signifies the Holy Spirit in Christianity. They have been preparing the ground for a more profound shift in planetary consciousness that is destined to take place in the human species. This is the spiritual awakening that we are beginning to witness now.”

~Eckhart Tolle, from A New Earth, excerpts from Chapter 1: The Flowering of Human Consciousness

Shakti dancing (with cartoon penguins)

One of the most cathartic aspects of my yoga is Shakti dancing. You know that expression, “dance like no one is watching?” Well, Shakti is watching… and she can’t wait for you to let go and let her do the doing. Can. Not. Wait.

Let go! Let Shakti move you. For serious, y’all…

Pop quiz: who remembers what makes the humans human? Choice! Sooo… why not choose to liberate your dancing feet? Currently, Maxim and I are breaking it down with this penguin- who has clearly been bitten by the Shakti bug.

Get up, right now, and join us!

So, how do you feel about banjos…

We’re pretty much going steady now, so…

There is something about the banjo that sounds so joyful to me. Something about it just screams ‘YES!’- perhaps my WV roots are showing…Shakti willing. Our solar plexus chakra (manipura) is the center of our power, our will, and our joy. When we shut this down and go on auto-pilot, we opt out of so many of the best parts of being a human being.

Check out Mean Mary doing her thing. Feelings?
