“An Update!” by Josh Kane

Hey
It’s Josh
This is what’s happening:

I have chosen to hold off on posting this week’s episode because it feels like, upon listening, that I have talked entirely too much about concepts that are only somewhat related to my own true experience. I was giving advice, offering technical practices and attaching some expectations to them around the little details of enlightenment.

Who knows what will wake anyone up… It’s not my place to tell you how you will feel from doing something. It is my belief that credibility depends on one’s actions being fully aligned with one’s speech. I; WE, do our best.

We accepted when we first started this, Ian and I, that we would be authentic to the best of our ability. We would be vulnerable and open to the best of our ability. And like the constitution of the united states, we would be a fixed object like a new river, with the ability to change and adapt to what will certainly be, just by flowing and letting the bedrock below do its thing. Make space.

We travel, still reaching out and connecting across thousands of miles, through thousands of seconds of stillness, hoping we’ll be present enough where we are at to one day fall helpless into the arms of Mother Earth and Father Sky. LA, CT, AU, UK, CA, NY… Step by step, we have seen this journey come so far, pouring wide open so we can feel empty… That emptiness of being fulfilled by the knowing that we have done all we can.

Remembering at last, with no hope of forgetting ever again, that we are eternal.

We are planning a trip to Italy to do some workshops in August, and that’s exciting for both of us. We are doing our best to keep up with everything. We imagine you are too, whoever you are.

Thanks for listening to my little check-in. I miss sharing so much with so many people at once, even though it’s so scary. To be seen by you, and wonder what you think, breathe through that, and then try my best to stay present with how it feels to be who I am, whether i understand or not, whether I try or I don’t. It’s all happening just right, otherwise it would’t and we would all do something else.

Maybe you agree. maybe not. Maybe you are still growing, like me, and that feels good. It feels true. Thanks for letting me into your world. You’re welcome in mine anytime… with boundaries, I would hope.

Aho

Episode 28: Yogis In Politics

Many people feel they are victims and have no power. The global crisis of politics, government and leadership has a lot of people scratching their heads, saying “We want change, we know that it’s possible. Can it be done with the systems in place, or do we need to start all over?”

Given the nature of our global epidemic, it’s our feeling that we have a great system in place, now what we need are the people with the ability to run it. Mindfully, skilfully, compassionately, with consciousness of the nature of stories and active listening. The best candidates, we feel, are yogis.
When we say “yogi” that includes Shamans, Monks or any other spiritual practitioner.

There are many historical examples of yogis in leadership positions and it’s starting to become more common again.

In addition to being incorruptible, these “yogi’s” can honestly love all people.
Focused on solutions that love everyone rather than getting locked into blame and political posturing.
They are focused on one thing, serving the community as a whole and that includes EVERYONE.
They will say what they believe is true, regardless of personal beliefs

It’s selfless service combined with genuine caring!

If you’re in the police force, army or a citizen with an opinion, send us a message about how you feel on the topic.

Note: I have plenty of happy friends in London, I was living there and struggling before I had a practice and knew who I am.
