Inner Space

A child and adolescent curriculum writer devoted to the exploration of inner, and individually driven spirituality that strengthens world wide inclusivity. My curriculum comes from Life's inner story. This is a record of my Life's inner space.

Hate’s ending point.

I open my mind and heart to those effected by injustice and those who inflict injustice. I know that the wounds and scars of hate afflict both equally. I stand up for love in an enormous effort of healing, I stand against no person by name or in spirit. I stand against the current, and never against those riding it or trampled by it. I blame no person, whether by name or type- but fiercely press against the current of maleficence. My heart pounds deeply.

Two of the Six pillars of nonviolent resistance, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., we are still listening.

In between.

img_1922When your tears and fears turn to inner empowerment, when your heart is heavy with usable energy and your bones are un-rattled, let us all meet on the path of peace. Understanding that our consciousness is connected, gives us great power in its movement. To know that your consciousness and my consciousness are one, means that we share a great creative force. Let us merge in diplomatic verse, let us mend our fracture with new consciousness. Let our wounds strengthen our connection. Let us elect tolerance in our minds and love in our words. Let us step into the middle, perhaps dark and unknown, until we have mapped every texture, topography and hole between.

 

Enough.

We are one. The ideas and backgrounds you do not understand, seek to understand them. The wrongs that enrage you, treat them tenderly. The arguments you are woven to, look at the pattern. Wherever you are, listen with ease.

“You have to act as if it were possible to radically transform the world. And you have to do it all the time.” -Angela Davis

 

Galactic.

From preschool to pre-menopause and far beyond- we all need to chill out. Coming across these jars made me feel like I:

  1. Was walking down a crisp and dewy meadow I created in my mind using internet memes and my 3rd grade state report about Maine.
  2. Fell through the shower drain into a milky and majestic universe where my heart beats in songs and there are seahorses, ferns and roses as far as the eye can see.

Aren’t they amazing. A contained glitter paradise. What more could I ask for?

Meditation Jars can be created and used by all ages.  Some might say replace the glass for plastic when working with certain age groups.

I say get rid of the plastic, go for the glass. Risk taking is essential for healthy development. Use more glass in your home and classroom and inspire a child’s ability to feel confident, able and successful. Setting up your home and classroom so that young children can take more risks, whether in arts and crafts or in day to day living will enable a child to feel in control- which will affect behavior in positive ways.¬†
