"In the space before my memories start, I have realized, there is a galaxy of nurturing that I had never witnessed, a love the color of the darkest hour in the middle of the night, a generosity beyond generosity. If you’ve never mothered or fathered, or witnessed parenting up very, very close in the very, very beginning, you might be like I was, you might not fully comprehend how much you have been cared for. It’s almost impossible to take in." ~Courtney Martin, from 'You Began in Love' (http://www.onbeing.org/blog/you-began-in-love-or-someone-once-wiped-your-ass-over-and-over-again/7030) Photo by Cia de Foto

jenbruntlett : This post broke me in two this morning. Full on crying at my desk (in a good, oh-so-thankful way). Calling my mom tonight.
madpainter : Exactly what I've been thinking as a new mom but said so eloquently. Sharing with everyone.

"Somewhere we read, 'The unexamined life is not worth living… for a human.' How are we supposed to live, to examine, to be, to become, to be fully human when we are so busy? This disease of being 'busy' (and let’s call it what it is, the dis-ease of being busy, when we are never at ease) is spiritually destructive to our health and wellbeing. It saps our ability to be fully present with those we love the most in our families, and keeps us from forming the kind of community that we all so desperately crave. It doesn’t have to be this way. In many Muslim cultures, when you want to ask them how they’re doing, you ask: in Arabic, 'Kayf haal-ik?' or, in Persian, 'Haal-e shomaa chetoreh?' How is your haal? What is this haal that you inquire about? It is the transient state of one’s heart. In reality, we ask, 'How is your heart doing at this very moment, at this breath?' When I ask, 'How are you?' that is really what I want to know. I am not asking how many items are on your to-do list, nor asking how many items are in your inbox. I want to know how your heart is doing, at this very moment. Tell me. Tell me your heart is joyous, tell me your heart is aching, tell me your heart is sad, tell me your heart craves a human touch. Examine your own heart, explore your soul, and then tell me something about your heart and your soul. Tell me you remember you are still a human being, not just a human doing. Tell me you’re more than just a machine, checking off items from your to-do list. Have that conversation, that glance, that touch. Be a healing conversation, one filled with grace and presence." —Omid Safi, from "The Disease of Being Busy" (http://www.onbeing.org/blog/the-disease-of-being-busy/7023)
elizabethayoub : Yes! The disease of being busy, I believe, is a consequence of the disease of modernity's fear - loneliness.

"I'm not insisting that we be brimming with hope. It's OK not to be optimistic. Buddhist teachings say [that] feeling that you have to maintain hope can wear you out, so just be present. The biggest gift you can give is to be absolutely present, and when you're worrying about whether you're hopeful or hopeless or pessimistic or optimistic, who cares? The main thing is that you're showing up, that you're here and that you're finding ever more capacity to love this world because it will not be healed without that. That was what is going to unleash our intelligence and our ingenuity and our solidarity for the healing of our world." —Joanna Macy, from A Wild Love for the World (http://www.onbeing.org/program/joanna-macy-a-wild-love-for-the-world/61) Photo by Paul McGeiver

So many great moments in this week's podcast with @NPR's Michel Martin: http://www.onbeing.org/program/michel-martin-the-fabric-of-our-identity/6791 If journalism is a primary way we tell the story of ourselves and our time, she is a person helping us tell that story — and take part in it — more completely. Her daily program Tell Me More was often labeled as “diversity” or “minority” programming. But in fact, she and her journalism are about a more generous and realistic sweep of who we are now — and how we’re creating our life together anew.
ccvignettes : Cool to see her. Sad that the show was canceled. Looking forward to listening to the interview.
stephenbstarr : @OnBeing just a note... your iPhone app seems to crash with iOS 8. :-( I can get my OnBeing fix elsewhere.
savalaandcamera : Thank you for featuring her! Still can't get over @npr cancelling such a rich and real program
onbeing : @stephenbstarr thanks. We have an update submitted but it's been queued for two weeks now at Apple. Doh!
onbeing : @savalaandcamera You are most welcome. It was a pleasure to produce and introduce to so many others. I trust that she'll find an even better place to showcase her talents. ~@trentgilliss
stephenbstarr : @onbeing no worries I get you on iTunes podcast. Your app has way better UI however and you push out faster there. Good luck... I'll be your first tester :-).
