Hi <<First Name>>,
A reminder to join our Thursday Meditation and Chat this evening 7-8pm Pacific Time. Zoom info is included below. Enter any time you can, but please try your best to arrive before 7:05 if you'd like to join the guided meditation.
And if you can't join us, here's a short poem to accompany your day (and week)...
It is said that before entering the sea
a river trembles with fear.
She looks back at the path she has traveled,
from the peaks of the mountains,
the long winding road crossing forests and villages.
And in front of her,
she sees an ocean so vast,
that to enter
there seems nothing more than to disappear forever.
But there is no other way.
The river can not go back.
Nobody can go back.
To go back is impossible in existence.
The river needs to take the risk
of entering the ocean
because only then will fear disappear,
because that’s where the river will know
it’s not about disappearing into the ocean,
but of becoming the ocean.
