I'm headed to a 10-day Vipassana retreat
Thank you, Omar, for the transparency of your free-flowing blog. May your 10 days bring your heart- mind the medicine needed now. Falling into the Silence of Source … is a sacred place of refreshment in my experience. I’ll be holding you in my meditations, if that’s alright with you.
You’re a beautiful soul, Omar. Peace.
Enjoy your retreat and rest of well. My heart too is broken by so much cruelty and lack of consideration for those who are caught between the autocrats and extremists, greed and poverty, truth and deception. The only thing that makes it better is knowing that the les mechants are a small small segment of the world, and that someday, the wheels of karma will make themselves known.
We all from left to right, are feeling the pressure of what's happening in the Middle East. We all carrying a big guilt on our hearts. But that comes from our helplessness and not hopelessness. I'm afraid the future will be very blink and need to get ready for the next unfortunate changes. We don't have to go to far to see and feel the injustice. However, in "my way", to feel the pain of others is to volunteer with groups who are trying to help others to coup with their hopelessness. Or, taking a big physical challenge of a looooong distance hiking or mountain climbing. That get your body busy and give your mind a break of internal voices.
Sending you much love and strength for your retreat and for life, brother!
Thank you, Omar. Yes ! Holding you in meditation & you me ! Good practice. Peace.
