hold peace

this is a creative process, it is not a discipline, a job, a task but instead is like making art. Like other practices it is not just pulled out of the hat but takes preparation. Establishing a non judging mind is essential, this can be done with morning pages (see Julia Cameron's the Artists Way) Qigong, compassion meditation, or many of the exercises in Sensei's workbook The Missing Peace. Then instead of buying into what the media tells us, or experience tells us, or common sense tells us, we can imagine peace, prosperity, magic, well being happening right now for everyone, including those we are afraid for or afraid of. But don't do it with the head, do it with the heart.

This morning a clear window opened for me to see the 200+ girls taken from their school in Nigeria becoming the 200 new world leaders, a guardian congress of innovators and guides to creating a sustainable, co-creating, caring and responsible global culture. Be the change you want to see. We are all our own 3d printers, we build with our imagination, it is something we really do, so make it what you want.
