Mirabai Bush, a meditation and mindfulness teacher who leads Google's mindfulness training, "Search Inside Yourself," pointed us to an illustration of contemplative practices, which shows the breadth of meditation and mindfulness within traditions. Although this list isn't comprehensive, it does open up one's imagination about how these disciplines take root and manifest themselves in our lives. Seeing these classifications, I'm left wondering what else in our experiences might be part of this tree. More on the tree of contemplative practices here: http://www.onbeing.org/blog/the-tree-of-contemplative-practices/7343

"It requires no special talent or effort to look at our world and point out the things that numb us, or dumb us down, or depress us. In fact, it's a no-brainer! But becoming keenly and consistently aware of what's good, true, beautiful, and life-giving around us and within us demands a discipline: we must open our eyes, minds, and hearts. And we must keep them open. The reward for that discipline is great: as we open up, we start to see beauty everywhere, not only in nature, but in human nature. There's a lot of bad news out there, but there's a lot of good news as well. Pass the word and help keep hope alive!" —Parker Palmer on instructing oneself over and over (http://www.onbeing.org/blog/to-instruct-myself-over-and-over-in-joy/7296) Photo by Vern

"Here’s what I hope. The best way I can think of to honor the lives of Deah, Yusor, and Razan is to commit ourselves to loving one another, suffering together, working together so that we always remember that: Knowledge is more luminous than ignorance Justice is more beautiful than tyranny Love is more divine than hatred." Omid Safi has written a searching piece on the three students killed in Charlotte and the suffering of the Muslim community in "Letting Our Suffering Speak and Be Public: http://www.onbeing.org/blog/letting-our-suffering-speak-and-be-public/7297 Photo by Brandon Smialowski

"You only have to let the soft animal of your body / love what it loves." I've repeated and mulled over these lines from Mary Oliver's poem "Wild Geese" for hours. And this poem has been quoted to me and sent to me and uttered in ways few others have. It's a testament to the power of her verse and its capacity to speak so deeply to so many types of people and personalities. Yet we rarely hear her read her own work. So, from a living room in suburban Florida, she read "Wild Geese" for our program, "Listening to the World". It's magical, and how it came into being is surprising: http://bit.ly/1IC7v93 Photo by Liz West

"When I ask people what is vulnerability, the answers were things like 'Sitting with my wife who has Stage III breast cancer and trying to make plans for our children,' 'My first date after my divorce,' 'Saying I love you first,' 'Asking for a raise,' 'Sending my child to school, being enthusiastic and supportive of him, and knowing how excited he is about orchestra tryouts and how much he wants to make first chair and encouraging him and supporting him and knowing that's not going to happen.' To me, vulnerability is courage. It's about the willingness to show up and be seen in our lives. And in those moments when we show up, I think those are the most powerful, meaning-making moments of our lives even if they don't go well. I think they define who we are." This interview with Brené Brown just may change your life. The podcast version is excellent, but the unedited interview is amazing. Each edit we made was an excruciating cut.

adventures_in_mind : Along with Mary Oliver, @brenebrown is a true treasure of our time. Thank you @onbeing for your efforts to shine their lights even brighter in this world. We need to be inspired to act with courage more than ever right now ๐Ÿ™โœจ

"The wedding ceremony has been thoroughly remade in the last decade by a generation of young people who don’t identify with a particular religious tradition. We crave ritual, but can’t abide by moralizing. We believe in the power of making promises in front of beloved witnesses. We delight in the idea that — in a time of obsolescence and disconnection — a ceremony like this weaves us into the larger, ancient tapestry of our two families. We obviously love a good party, but we don’t want to be married by a relative stranger." Courtney Martin offers this column today (http://www.onbeing.org/blog/an-unofficial-guide-to-officiating-a-wedding-of-nones/7236) that speaks to a new generation of couples who are creating new ritual, but may be stumbling a bit along the way.

In recent weeks, I've been turning this famous line by the Swiss psychotherapist over and over in my mind, "One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious." I'm sure this idea of the omnipresent darkness would resonate with civil rights legend Vince Harding (http://www.onbeing.org/program/civility-history-and-hope/79), but I wonder about the part about the imaginings of light. Nevertheless there is something reassuring about the omnipresence of darkness. What do you make of this? How do you interpret in your own life? I should mention that I pulled this quotation from our new iPad app, if you should care to download: On Being for iPad - Elevating Conversation by Krista Tippett Public Productions https://appsto.re/us/0khZ4.i
shytown711 : What I know about Jung..he was about embracing our shadow sides, the parts of ourselves we don't like to admit exists. What I take from this is, we are fully whole when we accept all parts of ourselves, not just the "desirable" parts.
hopscotchmary : Wow!
elizabethayoub : ...Making the darkness conscious and transforming it into light - this I believe in.

"Sometimes suffering is the distance between a child’s eyes and a doctor’s gaze. It’s the space between a child’s forehead and the palm of your hand. Between two beating hearts. Sometimes suffering is just down the street from you. Sometimes you don’t even know it’s there." Lauren Small submitted this amazing essay about a neighbor who loved dogs but couldn't endure the pain of this world (http://www.onbeing.org/blog/the-distance-to-suffering/7211). I chose this photo for the piece as a way to hint at that joy, and the unknown. Photograph by Johannesburg Eisele.
