Lemonaid

“We do not have to go very far to catch echoes of … that dancing.  When we are alone on a starlit night; when we, by chance, see the migrating birds in autumn descending on a grove of junipers to rest and eat; when we see children in a moment when they are really children; when we know love in our hearts…

At such times the awakening, the turning inside out of all values, the “newness,” the emptiness and purity of vision that make themselves evident, provide a glimpse of the cosmic dance.

For the world and time are the dance of the One in emptiness.  The silence of the spheres is a wedding feast. 

… Indeed, we are in the midst of it and it is in the midst of us, for it beats in our blood whether we want it to or not.

Yet the fact remains that we are invited to forget ourselves on purpose, cast our awful solemnity to the winds and join in the general dance.”

                                                       –Thomas Merton

It is time for me to do daily live broadcasts to show the Empath Stretches, and to offer my dance for joining, for using, for watching, for doing.

With so many of my dear friends doing excellent webinars and generous spacious video broadcasts live, I still know that my broadcast will reach people in a new way. My fear of discovery is real: I am not worthy of fame. However in this time of Lemons, Lemonaid is wanted and needed.

With our lives changed forever, our children popped into our laps, chafing the change, challenging us to take over their education, humanity’s heart strings pulled to the max, as hospital workers collapse, and well people are dying in a matter of days, our political system focuses on rescuing the economy.

We must focus on rescuing our humanity: our values, our morality, our empathy, our compassion. With kids there’s been a popularity with being mean. Our young adults have reveled in a selfishness that’s Seinfeld-ish evil, Our degenerate education system forces teachers to teach to a test: making content king over process, which is wrong. There’s no time to nurture the emotionally traumatized, the insecure worried anxiety, or the frozen upset of autism. A system that punishes also teaches kids that the powerful are punishers.

But real power is in vulnerability, expressing feelings, moving through our pain and reaching out to others in Love. Nature will lead us to our hearts, to our higher power, to an US that is sustainable, nurturing, and fair.

As we sit in our homes, our minds and bodies rise to the occasion, finding joy in small things, triumph in communicating, peace in our enthused and dignified energy, aware as hearts connect to innate joy and wisdom.

The Lemonaid is this: inside the suffering, we are all one. As I becomes We, Illness becomes Wellness.
