LOL – Love Of Life = Fierce Presence
B E L O N G I N G 2 L I F E = Celebrating the Here & Now
When you feel a-part-of-life and not apart-from-it
Over the weekend I was drawn to the “Safe & Sacred Place Inside” as the healer of the trauma of displacement. I looked for music that had “safe & sacred place” in it, and also discovered that ‘place’ in Hebrew – מקום is one of the names of God. All this attention was prompted by three events:
* Being informed five minutes before the beginning of my meditation class of the past fifteen years at FID, that it was going to be my last class & feeling a sense of Fierce-Presence about it.
* Watching the second Republican debate and feeling like someone was trying to scare me for two hours how dangerous life was but didn’t succeed, because I love & belong-to-life & feel a-part-of-it, rather than being afraid & feeling apart-from-it. And that’s unarguable
* Facilitating a BREAZE gathering through Skype in Juba South Sudan psychiatric hospital for staff & patients, and dancing to “Celebrate” by Emmanuel Kembe, and feeling that Fierce Presence unarguable connection.
