all in

Perhaps it feels like the world is going crazy.   It has become too loud.  Too frustrating.  People are angry and confused.  Things seem scattered. Pause.  Breathe.  Close your eyes and quiet yourself.   Find that place of calm inside of you where there is no frustration, anger or confusion. Meditate this new moon to…
