Recently, a man quietly left this world while meditating. This man – who shall remain anonymous – left behind a body of work and a school, as a legacy to his time here on this planet.
To create such a gift for the world is precious. His corpus of spiritual content, I believe to be rich and significant; the stuff we need to build a better world.
I too wish to bring something significant to the world. I want to be observant, yet respectful of the human condition. I want to pass through the world intentionally, graciously, spiritually, yet all the while challenging the status quo. I want to disrupt our belief systems. I want to make the world a better place.
I believe this man did this in his own way and I admire that.
For the record, I never knew him personally; my knowledge of him passed down from those that connected us from a distance and my studies of his work (content in the form of books and Cd’s). Yet, news of his death touched me deeply. So I find myself pensive about life and death. I feel a longing to explore my own spirituality deeper, more intentionally.
Perhaps this is my quiet tribute to a man I wished I had known.
