Every night after and every day since, I find myself crying when the memory hits. Sometimes it knocks me down, sometimes I can just put it away. Down in my mind where I don't care to go, The pain of a lesson is letting me know If you have love in your heart let it show while you can. Yes now I understand, But now my only chance To talk to you is through my prayers; I only wanted to tell ya I care. Th Avett Brothers
40 days, many ways was our first meditation practice. it grew out of the idea that lent is a wonderful opportunity to focus on the present, go into the wilderness of life in order to get in touch with their Spirit. it’s what Jesus did, and all the great spiritual masters have done, with the idea of 40 days being a decent period of time in which to wrestle out the difficult stuff and gain clarity and perspective.
it was also inspired by the many ways we all quiet are minds, with so many different ways to find focus and clarity and quiet. maybe enough quiet to tap into that internal wisdom which resides in each of us. find here many ways to peace.
"I saw Jesus on the cross on a hill called Calvary Do you hate mankind, for what they’ve done to you? He said talk of love not hate, Things to do, it’s getting late; I’ve so little time and I’m only passing through." ~ Leonard Cohen, "Passing Through"
