Bringing Wholeness to Your Body
from sound shaman Norma Gentile
I am considering the need to meet violent adversity in our outer world not with more adversity, but rather with a sense of warm heartedness.
Not the kind of warm heartedness that allows us to be stabbed by the violent adversity, but rather a warm heartedness that allows us to see beyond the violence, see beyond the adversity, and come to a point of compassion in understanding the pain that another might be feeling.
I find this is really only possible when I feel whole and content within myself. The less balanced I feel, the more I am apt to meet someone else’s adversity and violent temper with a pushback energetically of my own.
As we move into summer the longer time of daylight is reminding me of how outbound our culture tends to be. As long as there is light and sun, US culture has a sense of go-go-go-go-go throughout the day.
And that to me is a big piece of why we are having so much violence in our society. I am speaking here as a US citizen. There is such a great amount of short temperedness because we simply have lost the ability to nourish ourselves in a way that helps us find our own center.
Here is a meditation, with a healing song, to do just that.
