Meditation is not a hiding place from the ugliness in our midst. Meditation is an invitation to mindfulness. Meditation is a reorientation of our minds so that we may bring light instead of adding to the darkness. Your presence – even without words – can be light, love, balance and beauty to a world in need. Emptied of the false self; wholeness in the true self. As you move amidst the darkness, offer light. Love is the light.

Those who follow the natural way  
are different from others in three respects.  
They have great mercy and economy,  
and the courage not to compete.  
From mercy there comes courage;  
from economy, generosity;  
and from humility, willingness to lead from behind. 

Chapter 67 – Tao Te Ching

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said,

“I am the light of the world.

Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness,

but will have the light of life.”

John 8:12
