Master Matthew Greenwood
Gratitude for a beautiful gathering, beautiful beings, all blessed with beautiful sunshine…. may all beings in the world be happy and at peace.

 

Amy Self:
…There I sat, thirty minutes of contemplation and breath. A sense of others in my parameter, a sense of safety and goodness longed for. The mind, free to meander through the thoughts that have been challenging it of late.
Encouraged, elevated and energized. A fresh start. A desire to meditate and make time for this amazing space in mind, body and soul.
Thank you, to all who made it possible.
Blessed be.

Meditation Flash Mob Trafalgar Square, London;
with Thich Nhat Hanh commentary:

May the sound of this bell penetrate deep into the cosmos….
The universal Dharma door is already open.

“Listening to the bell, I feel the afflictions in me begin to be solved.
My mind calm, my body relaxed, a smile is born on my lips.
Following the sound of the bell my breath brings me back to the safe island of mindfulness.
In the garden of my heart, the flowers of peace bloom beautifully.”

Bristol’s 2nd Sit in Peace Meditation Flashmob

SIT IN PEACE 2
Bristol Meditation Flash Mob

~ growing in energy by the day

 

 

Saturday July 28th 
2.30 – 3.00pm
College Green

🙂

 

World Peace

Making up WMD makes as much sense as sending in ‘peace-keeping forces’.
We can never hope to achieve world peace with violence and guns.

Hatred and anger beget more hatred and anger.
“An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind ” ~ Gandhi

World peace can only be achieved if we first establish peace within our own minds. So moment by moment, on occasions such as this,
we are creating world peace.

  = 🙂

When i see phenomena like this being created, it gives me hope that together we can really make a better world.

Inspired by Peace


 I didn’t know it at the time – thought it was just us, small and isolated in Bristol city centre’s busyness. But It was a worldwide event, inspired by Tich Nhat Hanh for International Peace Day. In fact we were linked to hundreds (thousands?) of like-minded people across the globe, all meditating for a better world.
Which is kinda’ analogous to how we normally see ourselves – as independent individuals, not really connected to most other people. But that’s so not true; “in fact, every happiness there is in the world arises as a result of others’ kindness.” (Geshe Kelsang) We are all interconnected. We all depend upon each other, in one way or another. We all drink the same water and breathe the same air. Life becomes easier when we can accept that.

Tich Nhat Hanh

Sitting with our comparatively small group on a pavement on College Green certainly brought on a feeling of interbeing. This excerpt describes the experience in London:

“Trafalgar Square, 10 minutes before the secret lift-off, was full, as usual, with summer crowds and precious few people that I could clock as potential meditators. It was warm and I sat on a bench to wait. I didn’t hear the lone woman singing at 6.30pm who was the signal, but I saw something even more startling.
Across the square, from all sides, apparently uninvolved idlers strode forward purposefully to the designated area between the two large fountains. It was like Superman suddenly emerging from unobtrusive Clark Kent – or rather, around a hundred or so Supermen.

It was simple to be impelled along on that sudden wave and to just sit down among the throng. And a deep silence immediately arose. I was astonished. There was a sense of naturalness and openness. The steady sound of the water in the two fountains, the grumble of traffic masked behind them, and a light hither and thither breeze. It felt not so much a comment on mad commercial London but more a coexistence with it – unifying in its effect rather than polarising.

After 20 minutes, the low growl of chanting “Om” began and it rolled back and forth in waves, rising and falling until 7pm struck. And then it was all over. Standing up, the world felt different. I would have liked to have made eye contact with someone, or even hugged someone. But being British, I reverted to the conventions of public space. I picked up my things and left to catch my bus.

I don’t know if the exercise showed anybody anything or made any point at all. But I do know that for me it was a half an hour of purest sanity.”
