On Monday at 7 PM, this spiritually driven political activist began a 24-hour FAST- an act of willing abstinence from food, drink, NEWS and Technology who respects the Wisdom Teachings of ALL religions although I no longer adhere to any ONE of them....
I grew up constantly hearing my mother say, “Eileen you climbed out of your crib before you were nine months old, you never walked you ran and you still haven’t learned to slow down!”

At this morning’s Yin class, led by Jenny who gracefully glides across the floor reminded us to be compassionate and loving to ourselves and opening to the grace that is always available to us in the midst of our pain and suffering.
Grace is understood as elegance in form, manner, motion, action as well as mercy and clemency.
In Christian theology grace is defined not as a created substance of any kind, but as the love and mercy given to us by The Divine Creator as a spontaneous gift IF we are open to receive it.

“The peace of the world begins in Jerusalem”- Rev. Theodore Hessburgh
