A piece that came up over Thanksgiving. I really enjoyed writing for the bassoon.
To all the men out there, sorry about their lives–angry about them. Women are not the vessel for your outrage.
Everyone needs to chill out every now and then. Someone annoyed you at work. You don’t think you love your partner or children anymore. It happens to all of us. Minutes and intent can bring you back to the loving part of yourself. I hope this helps this 6-minute meditation helps pull you back from the edge.
Our lives are short and progress proceeds slowly. The outcome of the intersection of these truths is that it is difficult for individuals to be content being a middle station in the assembly line of progress. We all want to be the one to drive the machine in or out the door. We all want to be the revolutionary or treaty signer. Sometimes we invent causes when there is no need and avoid preventive measures because they provide no drama, produce no loud bangs or eloquently worded archival documents. Most of us just have to be content to take care and do good in our own lifetimes- just on faith. We must believe that our individual, seemingly insignificant acts of goodness will accumulate with others and mean something in the end. We have to live on faith.[
