Meditating in the London tubes

January 22, 2009

Today Mike MudIsland Mike let me know that he’d blogged about our podcast. The post was so much fun to read that I thought I’d link to it for you to read (read the post). He writes colorfully and with a great sense of humor about listening to the podcasts on his daily London commute.

Everyday I hear from people about their experiences with the podcast. It’s so fulfilling to be connected through meditation with so many people all over the world. I love hearing about the many ways and places people enjoy the meditations. Chances are most people are simply sitting or lying down with eyes closed while listening, but I’ve heard from people listening while exercising, walking, traveling, watching a pond and more ways than I can remember.

I can’t tell you how fulfilling it is for Richard and I to hear from all of you. Sometimes your stories are so heart-warming. Often what you share is so full of wisdom and the enthusiasm of your own inner discoveries. What an adventure this podcast has been! Thank you everyone who is taking this journey with me. And thanks to the techies who have created this incredible thing called the internet and all the software that allows us to meet in this way across the world.

    Yes, bless those techies who allow us to all meditate together at different times and in different places.

    THANK YOU. Yes, I am immensely thankful too for all these inventions that help bring our “worlds” closer to each other. And most of all to those people like you and Richard whose help make this world a better one.

    It is in my passion to do that too and each one of us has the capacity to make this world a better one. And I believe that starts from being at peace with oneself.

    Lotus, we too feel that peace within ourselves is the starting point for a better world. Even without doing anything specific to “help the world”, a peaceful person spreads an influence.

    I third those blessings to the techies! What about using some of that tech stuff to do an international meditation via the podcast? I think it would be nice if the podcast listeners agreed upon a time to sit in peace together no matter where we are and what time it is in order to “help the world”. Any thoughts on something like that?

    Actually, Ben, we had been thinking about having some sort of live group meditation. Don’t know, technically, how it would be done. Sounds like what you are suggesting is to create a meditation for people to use at a specific time knowing everyone is doing it together. We’ll see what comes out of these ideas!
