The Heart-Pounding Truth

Truth is often not easy, or comfortable.Truth can make you sweat.It can make your legs shake, your heart pound.It can pull the rug of certainty from under your feet.It can destroy comfort, the status quo.But it can make you feel alive like nothing else.It can rip your heart open to love. It can connect you in ways you never thought possible.Live your deepest truth today, even if it means losing everything - your pride, your status, your image, your way of life.For the lies, the half-truths and the burden of unspoken things will eventually suffocate you and everyone around you.Know that you can only lose what's non-essential, anyway.Give up everything for a truthful existence. ~ Jeff Foster

The First Prayer

Invite curious attention to wash down through the throat, the chest, into the pit of the stomach; let it infiltrate the raw, tingly, fluttery, alive sensations there. Let attention drench your sorrow, your loneliness, that sense of abandonment you’ve been running from. For a moment, provide a sanctuary for these ancient ones, these beautiful fragments of a great puzzle you understood long ago. Let this present scene of the movie of your life be sanctified with attention, with this kindly awareness called love. This is prayer. “I am here. I am here. And it’s okay. Even though it doesn’t feel okay, it’s okay. My sadness is intelligent. My fear is ancient, and sacred, and worthy. My longing burns with life....

The Miracle of Change

What is the point of arguing with life as it is?Here is the miracle and paradox of change. When we tire of our internal violence, when we are no longer at war with the way things are now, when we no longer argue with the present scene in the movie of our lives, we come to rest. And then, from a place of rest and a deep connection to the ground of Now, new vistas open up, unexplored forests of possibility reveal themselves. New connections are made, new solutions emerge. From a place of equanimity and acceptance, things that seemed certain are now not so certain, blocks are no longer solid blocks, old futures begin to collapse and new futures...

In The Midst of Death We Are In Life

In Iran, they have been digging massive burial pits for the dead. In northern Italy, elderly relatives disappear into ambulances, never to be seen again, no final goodbyes. There are no funerals there anymore. Doctors and nurses go without sleep, work on the verge of physical and mental collapse.Here in the UK, cruise ships have docked in London, ready to be used as giant 2000-bed field hospitals.We are living in unprecedented times.So much to process each day. So many feelings to feel. In our vulnerability, we are being forced to adapt to a new way of life.To open our eyes, without getting blinded. To see the truth, yet stay kind. Some say this virus is here to awaken and heal...
