Is there a way to enter a meditation practice? Are there any words that could provide direction or encouragement? On one side, sitting with a straight spine, breathing in and breathing out, can be one of the most difficult things we can do. On the other hand, every other animal does it, isn’t it just that moment unfolding on itself? We come together to hold and listen to the question of our lives. As we settle, like the dust on our driveway, we keep this mind of deep attention with each other and our selves. It is the kind of attention that when your friend feels like they will cry, a tear flows from your eye.
