3 x 3 Meditation Practice
It's not in the books. It's in our hearts.
Spend 3 minutes, 3 times a day, in stillness.
A total of nine minutes.
Doing this practice connects you back to
being more-here-now as you live your whole life.
Pay attention to the "in and out breaths".
Watch the mind for three minutes without judgement.
Morning, early afternoon, and early evening;
or, just whenever. There are no fixed rules here.
Do this practice without judging how well you did;
a subtle and beautiful transformation will dawn.

Become comfortable with being lost. Knowing that you don't know where you are is honest freedom. Breathe long deep breaths. Feel the life within you. pic.twitter.com/Op6U3b1Zki— Meditation101 (@meditation101) June 17, 2018

A Sunday Song of Love’s Longing Found
I was awakened this morning
By the music of a bird
Singing his heart out
For his love.
Recalling in me
The pinging sound
Of water meeting stone,
As the stream sparkles
Countless twinkling little sunbursts,
Reflecting the one sun.
The sky’s stars
Flickering in the bright night;
Suns for other planets’ days,
Form a line
In our sight—
The joining of my heart
With my love;
Two shining as one,
Bursting with light
* * *
The miracles of life
In the Love that is expressed
And so are more
Than the entire
Of all the human-folly driven
Of this planet we call
The place of our singing
And our crying,
And our shining.
For Love is absolute.
It permeates the Universe,
Saturates all existence's manifestations,
Is what we all are.

Everything is related to everything else. We know this by intuition, by listening and feeling deeply. We also intuit this via cyclic revolutions of electronic communications such as the internet, radio, television, etc. The world's "growing" a collective global brain to augment our biological heritage.
Where is all this going? We don't know. We are "cells" of human life plunging into a great mystery.
