A Meditation for Occupy

This afternoon, anger washed over me, and it has been seeping through my cells as I read about our government’s latest decisions to weaken the Federal Environmental Assessment Act as well as the Fisheries Act. (The Fisheries Act,  states very clearly  that “no person shall carry out any work or undertaking that results in the harmful alteration, disruption or destruction of fish habitat.” But the Conservataive government wants to change the Act to make it legal to destroy waterways provided that it does not “result in an adverse effect on a fish of economic, cultural or ecological value.” Arghhh…..

My heart is breaking.

Thankfully, I came across this video, which aims ” to help its audience relax, engaging the sacred, feel the power of the Occupy Movement, and release that which no longer serves, clearing an inner path to envision and create an inclusive, equitable, and peaceful world.”

Watching and meditating on the video, I am reminded that I can use this pain, this anger, this deep hurt, as an opportunity to dive into love, to dive into the truth. I am called to strengthen my practice, to stand with and for life, to remember that nothing, absolutely nothing is what it seems.

Spring is here, consciousness is rising – I wonder what flowers will blossom.
