Life

by Rabindranath Tagore (Poet)

I shall not ever easily forget,
 My heart shall fill up with life,
 Even in death, lies hidden
 That endless life
 
 In the lightning and thunder, your flute plays,
 But that is no ordinary tune,
 I shall wake up to that tune.
 
 May I happily weather that storm,
 Even on the verge of lifelessness,
 Across 7 rivers, in 10 directions,
 Make us dance with your tune. 
Life “Song, Music & Dance”

About awakinOAK

Intentionally located in east Oakland -- to, on the one hand, overcome institutionalized violence and on the other hand, be showered by the multicultural love and wisdom from neighbors-- this small community strives for integral nonviolence and supports activities that foster fearlessness, courage, autonomy, unconditional love and compassion for all beings. Every Friday for the last 10 years, the anchors of Awakin Oakland, host "Wednesdays on Fridays", an open-house meditation night that was inspired by a family in Santa Clara who has been doing this for close to 23 years [2020] No teachers or gurus. No set agendas or proposed beliefs either. Just one strong principle -- when you change within, the world changes
