Dispatches from the Borough: Here’s a #shortvideo for YOU!


Bristol Borough 1/24/22 * Looking North

Hello, fellow travelers, it’s Scott, and welcome to this present moment!

Probably the most self-flagellating and destructive practice we engage in is the belief that when things are going well with us, that means our individual value is high…

And when things are not going well, our individual value is low and we’re terrible people, because…well…look at the hard times I mean, if times suck for me, right now, that must mean it’s because I suck, right??

We are not your thoughts, feelings, perceptions, or ideas. We have them and are 100 % responsible for what we do with them and their effect on the lives of others.

And yet, they change.

The essential nature of who you are… The breath within your breath… That is unchanging.

Rest in that for just this moment.

You are always the most precious of all the diamonds, no matter how much you might think your value fluctuates.

It never does.


Stay with us!
