First of all I'd like to thank everyone all over the world for supporting my fast!
Sister Asante, thank you for your kind words, and i'm proud of you for
helping your friend that is out of work. Putting the People First, when
you have your own trials and tribulations going on. You too have lost
your job. I'm sending you strength through my fasting.
Nick, my man, from Trinidad, long time I haven't heard from you. Thank
you for your kind words. That also goes for Akashi from Japan, Randy
from Hawaii, Asomaning from Ghana, Sonia from Ecuador, Masada from
Washington State, Sheilagh from St. Thomas and everyone else that has
been so compassionate.
Today's Fast is for the Families that are struggling. As I said before,
please turn off or limit the TV access. There is so much violence on
TV. It's a waste of precious time. We must teach our children to read
more. Keep a book with you at all times. "Those who read shall lead".
Please go outdoors, to the park or to the mountains, with your family.
You can even pitch a tent and camp in your back yard to be next to
nature. It is spring and we need to be outdoors riding a bike or
gardening. Have your kids plant a garden with you. If you are out of a
job turn this into a blessing. It gives you more time with your family.
We work to much anyway! That's the Plan... If your to busy you can't
really be aware of whats really going on. You remain unaware of
yourself, your family, your dogs and everything around. I know in this economic crisis, your family needs steady income but try
to turn poison into medicine. In nature where ever there is a poisonous
plant, the antidote is growing near.
Just remember in this time of despair when you are feeling overwhelmed,
Love is still here. A very wise man said "At this time our capacity to
communicate, to forgive, to be compassion is still there" You have to
believe this...We are more than our anger and we are more than our
To your loved ones, use loving speech and kind words. Remember to smile
when you wake up. Just have some reminders around you to keep you
smiling. The sun in the morning, coming in, your child's voice. Just
keep smiling. It helps you approach your day with gentleness and
Remember earlier I was talking about taking three breaths when you were
feeling upset and having anxiety, keep continuing to do that to keep
yourself calm in these times. You can practice this Conscious Breathing
approach that a Master gave us.
Recite these 4 lines silently as you breath:
"Breathing in, I calm my Body"
"Breathing out, I smile"
"Dwelling in the Present Moment, I know this is a wonderful moment"
Bless You - Now you are Meditating
