Something Good

1. How I spent my weekend: “Fearless Creativity,” a writing and meditation retreat with Susan Piver at Shambhala Mountain Center.

My brain feels like this:

And my heart feels like this:

2. What We All Need, a post from Metta Drum. “You can be free. You can be big enough for your own life.”

3. Walking and Yoga, an excerpt from Running with the Mind of Meditation by Sakyong Mipham. I can’t wait to get my copy of the book and read the whole thing. All the excerpts I’ve seen so far are very inspiring. Also from Sakyong Mipham, 5 Tips for Running with the Mind of Meditation. And finally, Meditation for Running and Walking, a guided meditation by Sakyong Mipham that you can record, download on to your mp3 player, and listen to as you walk or run. I feel calmer, more at ease just listening to him.

4. Meditation: Am I Doing it “Right”? by Susan Piver. I may have shared this already, but if you missed it the first time, it’s a really good read, and you don’t have to practice meditation to understand what Susan is talking about. We could all benefit if we would just “Stop trying so hard all the time. If you can’t, then relax with yourself as one who just really, really wants to try. It’s OK.”

5. 8 things I’ve learned about life, the universe & everything — from 80+ life coaches, from Unicorns for Socialism. This post is so great.

6. An Invocation for Beginnings from Ze Frank. I love him so much.

7. A Credo for Making it Happen from Danielle LaPorte. Inspiring.

9. Pussy Willows.

I'd love to hear what you think, kind and gentle reader.
