Hello friends. We have moved into a new set of seasons for the next round of Living Awareness meditations. Summer is upon us and it is ripe with opportunities to use the senses. As the outer senses come alive, so too, do the inner senses. It’s a perfect time to settle into meditation – although, when is it not? Winter offers wonderful access to interiors of every kind; Spring brings newness; Summer is for the senses; and Autumn allows for reflection and release… cycles abound.
And thus we start a new cycle of the Practice of Living Awareness on Monday, July 17th. New meditations will be available here, on the blog, every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Each week we will present a new step, starting with Step 1 and completing with Step 14 in mid-October.
I hope you have been living your awareness in the interlude between rounds. Here’s an excerpt from one of the posts from the last round which ponders interludes: “Magic happens in the space between. It’s often within the pause, at the pit-stop, or during the intermission that we allow the fullness of an experience to resonate. Interludes are important; they are integrative. An interlude has no agenda other than itself – space to simple “be.” In time, we begin to grow comfortable with the space that is not being filled by words or tasks or compulsive activity. We allow ourselves to simply be present and comfortable.” Indeed, magic happens in the stillness of the space of the interlude. As stillness meets your presence and they combine exquisitely to allow you to simply observe and simply receive all of the activity that has culminated to create this new now — in its perfection (you gotta be aligned and willing to go there!) — from this space, joy arises! May it be so!
We’ll be together in the ethers before long! Oh, and if you haven’t registered for the new round, click this link to do so; we’d love to know that you’re join in!
