My heart is tired; isn’t yours?


The measure of a good person is in kindness and love; 

Why should a government be any different? 

When you meet someone new, do you say, 

“Where were you born? Where were your parents born? 

Do you have the proper identification?” 

Or do you offer your hand and say, 

“How do you do? Nice to meet you.” 

Why should a government be any different? 

Let the kindness of one person 

Be the kindness of The One. 

The measure of a good person is in kindness and love; 

Why should a government be any different?

We were born, and there was no hate in us. Underneath, aren’t we all just dreamers? Human beings with something in our spirit that moves us? We need acceptance after so many years of separation. My heart is tired; isn’t yours? If only governments and humans could share a kiss. A gentle touch. There would be no concentration camps, no walls. Police wouldn’t come to the door at night if we rose up bearing the kindness with which we were born. There was no hate in us. Person helping person, surely that is our nature. Where we are born means nothing. Where we would be is a matter of preference and need. Let us be newborn again, and embrace each other with open arms, let us know us know each other with open hearts.

The greatest meditation is a mind that lets go.

-Atiśa Dīpa kara Śrījñāna


I don’t believe meditation exists to help me escape or retreat from the world. I practice meditation because it can more fully embed me in the world and prepare me to act more intentionally within it.
