Spring is bustin’ out all over in Oregon, and it is a glorious time to be alive and out of doors.  The set this week has a new song by Guruganesha Singh with Snatam Kaur as well as oldies beloved by our satsang group.

Suzin Green had a guided meditation called The Breath of Lakshmi in her last newsletter, and I’m including it as the last song of the podcast. Lakshmi is a fountainhead of inexhaustible power personified as the goddess of abundance, magnificence & sublime well being. This work is especially relevant during hard times.  Look for more on this guided meditation after the set list.

Hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!  Enjoy the set.

The Breath of Lakshm?

The Self pushes the neglected forward for recognition.
Do not disregard it. It holds energy of highest value.
It is the gold in the dung. Do not disregard the dung.
-Marion Woodman

When we work with the awareness that Lakshm? personifies the fullness of life, we begin to enter the sublime realm of this deity field. Lakshm? is the fullness of life in all its fertile darkness and magnificent light. Think about what it means to dive into this fullness, embracing the sheer hugeness of it all.

As you contemplate the presence of Lakshm?, imagine that as you breathe in, you breathe in this fullness. And as you breathe out, you move into it. Breathe in, breathe out, breathe in, breathe out, opening wider and wider, deeper and deeper, moving into this inexhaustible vitality, life force, and grace. This is the breath of Lakshm?.

You can take this practice deeper by repeating the Lakshm?-bija-mantra silently, coordinating it with your breath.
