Running as Spiritual Practice

Go fast enough to get there, but slow enough to see.

- Jimmy Buffett -

Running as Spiritual Practice

"For the Summer Olympics, we explore a topic our listeners have called out as a passionate force and a connector across all kinds of boundaries in American culture: running. Not just as exercise, or as a merely physical pursuit, but running as a source of bonding between parents and children and friends; running as an interplay between competition and contemplation; running and body image and survival and healing." { read more }

Be The Change

Make time to run or walk today instead of driving, or just working indoors.

Thirteen Ways of Looking at Community

We were born to unite with our fellow men, and to join in community with the human race.

- -Cicero- -

Thirteen Ways of Looking at Community

Whether we know it or not, like it or not, honor it or not, we are embedded in community. Whether we think of ourselves as biological creatures or spiritual beings or both, the truth remains: we were created in and for a complex ecology of relatedness, and without it we wither and die. This simple fact has critical implications: community is not a goal to be achieved but a gift to be received. When we treat community as a product that we must manufacture instead of a gift we have been given, it will elude us eternally. When we try to "make community happen," driven by desire, design, and determination -- places within us where the ego often lurks -- we can make a good guess at the outcome: we will exhaust ourselves and alienate each other, snapping the connections we yearn for. Too many relationships have been diminished or destroyed by a drive toward "community-building" which evokes a grasping that is the opposite of what we need to do: relax into our created condition and receive the gift we have been given. { read more }

Be The Change

Relax into the community you've been given and embrace your interconnectedness with others.

They & The Emotional Weight of Words

It is easy to forget how full the world is of people, full to bursting, and each of them imaginable and consistently misimagined.

- John Green -

They & The Emotional Weight of Words

"Language is the space in which we carve a place for ourselves, where we demand to be seen. A reflection point for culture, community, and family to acknowledge our existence on our terms." For many, the pronouns 'he' and 'she' are limiting and do not adequately express their identity. "The entire lexicon for how we understand gender is shifting. For many of us, it can be a weighty, disorienting experience. But for a handful of us, this is a moment of freedom. If each of us does our part to challenge old language that pushes us back into small gender boxes, all of us will be a bit more free. Eventually we will align language with the complexity and beauty of our bodies and our authentic selves." { read more }

Be The Change

Consider how your language and assumptions about other people might be distancing rather than accepting. Try to see each person you encounter today as a unique, multi-faceted individual.
