about

....honestly I was pretty much an atheist for much of my life. Wanting there to be more but finding religious argument so anthropomorphic and utterly flawed.
The ridiculous concept of a wrathful god, the guilt of original sin, the codependence and lack of personal responsibility in the notion of a messiah,.... not to mention all the things done in the name of religion. But meditation changed my thought process. I began to have tangible experiences of the esoteric and realized that it was constantly available. Worry, guilt and mental pain all began to diminish as i created more and more dominion over my own mind. Being able to objectify your subjective, to watch your thought patterns, is a skill that opens one's life up in an entirely new way. like discovering the infinite numbers between 5 and 6 or singing the infinite notes between F and G. You just have so many more options.
.... and in steps a knowing, that the universe is infinite in all directions. sometimes, in meditation, conditions dissolve, time becomes irrelevant, and a personal evolution reveals itself. these are truly glorious moments. If we are to be the change in the world we must create a new way about us, a new paradigm. When we fight inside our own mind, we bring that reflection to our movements of social change. This can lead to more of the same divide and conquer that happens to so many social justice movements. For me i learned this when i spent two months living at Occupy LA. When we take responsibility to heal ourselves, forgive ourselves, we bring our wholeness to the table, and begin something truly new. We go beyond the chest-beating and become able to hold peaceful and compassionate space for ourselves and others. I truly think meditation, can bring us the perspective needed for each of us to dissolve the egoistical psychosis and pathologies that create the hierarchies and low intensity warfare that have become so normative.

lyrics

Infinite mind

Come to
wake up , wake up

I spent so long
wondering the halls of loneliness
judging everyone else's delusion
and not seeing my own
now here I am
standing in the presence
whose center is everywhere
hey you know you better believe it
physics is proven this true for me
oh just meditate

come to this infinite mind
come to this infinite mind
swim in this infinite source
swim you and me and everything that ever shall be of course

Our quantum lights
are shattering the darkness
universal luminosity
Melts the veils
dissolves the drama
it's evolution to be
just come try to be
completely poised
objective and subjective mind
balanced perfectly
there's no need to feel alone now
because were already free.
Just one love you see

just be the love, just be the love
