“We are used to thinking of Friday the 13th as bad luck. In fact, Friday the 13th was the day the witches gathered. When the patriarchal system, headed by the early church, began to squelch the power of women, witches were deemed evil, and many great women were deemed witches. Their meeting time, then, was seen as bad luck rather than as what it truly was; a time for women to gather and share energy and pray together and heal.” ~Marianne Williamson, “A Woman’s Worth”
“The equal right of all men to the use of land is as clear as their equal right to breathe the air — it is a right proclaimed by the fact of their existence. For we cannot suppose that some men have a right to be in this world, and others no right.” ~Henry George
Henry George was an American political economist from the 1800’s who inspired the economic philosophy known as Georgism, whose main tenet is that people should own what they create, but that everything found in nature, most importantly land, belongs equally to all humanity.

Quiet your mind.

Q: I need help. How do I quiet my mind when meditating? I have been trying for a long time without any success. Thank you for all the wonderful contributions you make and share with us.

Thank you for the kind words. In meditation, any attempt to quiet the mind using force won’t work. The everyday mind is full of thoughts, feelings, sensations, worries, daydreams and fantasies. But at a deeper level, the mind begins in silence. Finding that level deeper than thought is the essence of meditation.
Here are some clues about how to make your meditation work:
Have no expectations. Sometimes the mind is too active to settle down. Sometimes it settles down immediately. Sometimes it goes quiet, but the person doesn’t notice. Anything can happen.
Be easy with yourself. Meditation isn’t about getting it right or wrong. It’s about letting your mind find its true nature.
Don’t stick with meditation techniques that aren’t leading to inner silence. Unless you transcend the everyday mind, you aren’t truly meditating. Find a technique that works more or less automatically. In India, there are many kinds of mantra meditation, for example. Or simply follow the in and out of your breathing, not paying attention to your thoughts at all. The mind wants to find its source in silence. Give it a chance by letting go.
Make sure you are alone in a quiet place to meditate. Unplug the phone. Make sure no one is going to disturb you.
Really be there. If your attention is somewhere else, thinking about your next appointment, errand or meal, of course you won’t find silence. To meditate, your intention must be clear and free of other obligations.
