Grounding and centring

Many rituals begin with this simple practice, especially Pagan circles. It comes from the Taoist tradition originally, I think. There are several different versions of it.

The body

I invite you to take one breath for the earth beneath our feet, one for the sky above us, and one for the sea that surrounds us. Be aware of your body, and release any tension in your feet ... legs ... belly ... chest ... arms ... neck ... and head. Now look within yourself  what images arise? ... [pause] ...The body contains darkness  the velvet darkness of the flesh, the nourishing darkness of the earth. The body contains water  water that answers to the call of the Moon, water that nourishes life. The body contains earth  the chalk-white bones that hold us up. The body contains air  the air that we breathe. The body contains fire  the spark of life, the warmth of the flesh, the pulse of the blood. And the body contains light  the spark of the Divine in every heart, the light of reason in every mind. The body holds our memories  memories of happiness and sadness, memories that make us who we are. The body gives rise to our dreams  dreams of freedom and peace, dreams of love and passion. The body holds our spirit, our consciousness, our inner life. The body fixes us in time and place, allowing us to experience the present moment in all its fullness. Let us be present now  present to our bodies, present to each other, present to this precious moment. [long pause] Let us be present now. [music]

Loving kindness meditation

Many Buddhist traditions practice Metta Bhavana, or loving kindness meditation. (Metta means loving-kindness.) The meditation is in several stages (the classic version has five). At each stage, silently recite a mantra, linked to the breath. The first line is said on the inbreath, the second on the outbreath, and so on.

Atheist Spirituality

 Can an atheist be a spiritual person, and if so, in what sense? Is it meaningful to talk of atheist spirituality, or should the term be reserved for religious believers? This post may end up generating more questions than answers, but that seems fitting for a discussion of spirituality.

Quote of the moment

There is a common misunderstanding among all the human beings who have ever been born on earth that the best way to live is to try to avoid pain and just try to get comfortable. You see this even in insects and animals and birds. All of us are the same. A much more interesting, kind and joyful approach to life is to begin to develop our curiosity, not caring whether the object of our curiosity is bitter or sweet. To lead to a life that goes beyond pettiness and prejudice and always wanting to make sure that everything turns out on our own terms, to lead a more passionate, full, and delightful life than that, we must realize that we can endure a lot of pain and pleasure for the sake of finding out who we are and what this world is, how we tick and how our world ticks, how the whole thing just is. If we are committed to comfort at any cost, as soon as we come up against the least edge of pain, we’re going to run; we’ll never know what’s beyond that particular barrier or wall or fearful thing.
