During the Labor Day Weekend, I attended a retreat on a beautiful farm in Stanton, KY. My goal was to attempt to connect with my past—all the bad and the good—in a meaningful to help me move on with my life. I thought meditation out under the stars might help me achieve this goal.
Through a yoga practice spanning 15 years and countless hours of meditation, I have been able to calm the chatter in my mind and progress through different levels of meditative states.
However, to my surprise, I experienced a great awakening, just by planting my bare feet on the ground, near a venerable maple tree and gazing up at the beautiful Milky Way. I wrote about my experience and Elephant Journal published it today.
It may be a naive wish, but I truly wish everyone on Earth could experience what I experienced that lovely night. I believe it just might be a path to making all of our lives so much easier.
