A bit of “practical nonduality” I posted to Facebook today:   SHARE YOUR BEING I just wanted to remind you, in these “challenging times”: How important it is to maintain your centeredness in happiness, your equanimity, no matter what, as best you can in the moment.

Journal missive from the balcony… another set of highly imperfect notes.
