serpent politics

if i seem to take part in politics,
it is only because politics encircles us today
like a coil of a snake
from which one cannot get out,
no matter how much one tries.

i wish therefore
to wrestle with the snake.
                   ~ mahatma gandhi

will you stand by me?
june 30.. HIGH NOON ..12 PM
in anacortes
corner of 12th and commercial
(this is a national/international stance..
please..if you wish..
find your place to stand )
to be the ground for compassion,
lovingkindness, courage and clarity..

as the t-shirt says:
how do we separate out who's who
and what's what?
we are a human-humane species,
are we not?

truth has drawn me into politics; 
and i can say without the slightest hesitation, 
yet in all humility, 
that those who say that religion has nothing to do with politics 
do not know what religion means...

free community yoga

gratitude bestows reverence, 
changing forever
how we experience
life and the world 
                   ~ john milton

in a reciprocity where physical and spiritual
sustenance depends on the generosity of gestures ~
