Episode 38: Communication

Thanks for coming along for this week’s show.
Expanding on last week’s Listening show, this week we expand out to all communication.

Communication is key to so many aspects of our lives. It’s the way we relate to the world around us as well as how we relate to ourselves.

It was just me, Ian speaking in this one but the following people contributed to the content.

M-2-M – Remembering Now – 2013/03/27

I’m listening to Snatam Kaur sing the Sikh prayer “Poota Mata Kee Asees” (Mother’s blessing). It summarises my current experience in one line: “May you never forget God, even for a moment”.

Feel free to replace the word God with Now, Life, Truth, the Universe or any traditional name for Creator.

Over the last few months I’ve spent a lot of time with a dear old friend. His heart no longer beats due to cancer. It’s been an experience… Any words I use to describe it are just a best effort. I’ve felt like a humble student through the whole process. Listening has been my main focus. That’s listening. Not a story about it or attachment to listening which would be a story and distracting from actually being here too.

I found it useful to just slow down, breathe and feel the life force in this body. It was a great reminder and gave me space to stay in and around now. From this presence I could relax into just listening.

What a time to listen! Each person going through such a unique processes. In just being, my heart naturally opens in compassion. Feeling all of it and letting it be what it is.

Listening gave me clarity and honesty with others as well as with my own process. In sensitive awareness I could see stories starting and it was very clear they were stories. Like on old habit made clear on the canvas of silence. The perspectives from which they came is also clear and these thoughts often feel kind of artificial and soft. When feeling an urge I’ve just been bring presence to it. Shining light on the priority, source and truth in an instant of honest awareness. It’s a new, deeper and much more grounded place of perspective that feels easier, simpler and more natural than living meditation has felt in the past.

The moment to moment practice I am living is as Snatam says: “Never forget God, even for a moment”.
Just feeling each moment now.
If I get distracted, that was needed and I can remember to feel now again… now.
It feels like a mother open heartedly adoring her child though it’s directed at every moment and every thing… Myself included.

It took some sitting practice to help build this habit. The meditative states I was feeling while sitting naturally made their way into my life in unique and sometimes surprising ways.

I love this mothers blessing. I love the meaning, the intention, the wisdom and how it feels to sing it.
Thank you Snatam Kaur for sharing!
