I Love the World: Boomdeyada

Greetings All,

For those who havn’t seen this yet, here’s a wonderful 1 minute video
that instantiates some of our discussions…..awareness, embracing, etc.
I’m incorporating it into my Wisdom Therapy work and my teaching.

    There are many beautiful aspects of this video. At the very least, it is phenomenal to see and hear all of these varied people singing the same song in the same key!–Jennifer Olin-Hitt “Contemplatives are like great subterranean rivers, which, on occasion, break out into springs at unexpected points, or reveal their presence only by the plants they feed from below.”— Hans Urs Von Balthasar. Prayer.

    Loved Bommdeyade—thanks and happy freedom day to all! Freedom from . . . and freedom for what? Shobhana“Where is the literature which gives expression to Nature? He would be a poet who could impress the winds and the streams into his service, to speak for him; who nailed words to their primitive sense, as farmers drive down stakes in the spring, which the frost has heaved; who derived his words as often as he used them,–transplanted them to his page with earth adhering to their roots; whose words were so true and fresh and natural that though they lay half-smothered between two musty leaves in a library,–ay to bloom and bear fruit there, after their kind, annually, for the faithful reader, in sympathy with surrounding Nature.” — Thoreau

    Thank you Shani, Boomdeyada is essential! It brings us back to the reality of what we are in reality talking about … LOVE, JOY and HAPPINESS!Carlo Monsanto

    At the risk of sounding a little tight-assed, may I say that I hope Shani discusses in her Wisdom Therapy the irony of including war images in “Boomdeyada.” I hear Gabriele saying “our humanness includes war AND peace”–yes. But I don’t love people shooting at each other, or setting each other on fire, UNLESS we’re being self-aware about the implications.Did anyone hear the discussion on the Diane Rehm show this morning of Maggie Jackson’s new book “Distracted: The Erosion of Attention”?Jackson’s a journalist, not an educator or spiritual master, but her book, and her argument, sound awfully pertinent to our concerns. The co-guest (if that’s what you call it) had written a book called “How Stupid Are We?”–and though I didn’t find his thesis (about American voters) quite as pertinent, it IS pertinent in light of Shobhana’s question–“freedom for what?” If we don’t have at least some personal authentic answers for that, how stupid are we allowing ourselves and ourstudents to become?Good to hear from you all.Julie
