For the month of March, we will be meditating on the word Intuition. Our theme for the year is ‘We are the Intuitionists,’ so I invite you to enjoy the video, to participate, and to enjoy a deeper understanding of the nature of Intuition.
Happy New Year to all! I’m happy to say that my class / workshop schedule for 2016 will be posted here very soon. To start the year off, I’d like to share a few thoughts about our theme for the year, and the word for this month, which is transcendence.
If you are riding on a wave of life, you can be sure there is another one to follow.
Equanimity is a state of being where joy spontaneously arises within us. This can happen even in a very dark moment. This feeling of joy is not experienced as happiness, you know what I mean like, relief, giddiness, yummy. Joy is more like contentment, it’s enough. The feeling of having being satiated. It’s hard to understand that we can feel this way even if we are on the losing end of something.
To get to equanimity we must practice mindfulness. We hear this term a lot these days. When we’re not being mindful we’re being mindless. Mindfulness and equanimity are experienced intuitively. I realize people intellectualize these ideas. There’s much talk about consciousness, the nature of consciousness, super consciousness and so on. This is all good, of course, but attaining the state of equanimity is an intuitive experience. Let me explain.
