Deep & Simple: A Spiritual Path for Modern Times
Bo Lozoff’s book Deep & Simple was one of Mr. Rogers’ favorite books and is featured in the documentary titled “Mr. Rogers & Me: A Deep & Simple Documentary.” The book is a practical, down-to-earth guide for every reader who sincerely wants to make changes in his or her life. It’s grouped into three sections: 1. Spiritual practice 2. Simple living 3. Dedication to service In a deep, simple, and clear voice, Bo reminds us all that no matter where we are as human beings, whether in suburbia or on death row, there is a goodness inherent in the human spirit. We all matter, we all count, and we are all able to make a difference. All proceeds support the Prison-Ashram Project, which sends these books free to prisoners for 40 years now.

Feb 13, 2015Sacred Bagels: "During our meeting with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, I put all my attention into being present, open and receptive in the presence of such a great spiritual elder. I tried to look practically - 'He's got two legs, two arms, a head, a nose. We both wake up in the morning, both go to sleep at night. What is the real functional difference between his experience and mine?' One of the things I noticed is simply that he's 'full-time.' You and I may go to a church service or spiritual retreat, and with enough mutual support and encouragement, we may let down our guard, and be willing to feel the Living Spirit with each other. We'll be open and trusting, experiencing the preciousness of being together and practicing together. Then the service ends, and on the way home we stop for gas, or a bagel or something. And here is the difference: You and I are then willing to pretend with the gas station attendant, or with the cashier, that life isn't so sacred. We pretend that... More > this is just buying a bagel, this is just getting gas. We won't look in their eyes. We won't be intimate. It's like an unspoken agreement to avoid feeling how precious we are to each other. The Dalai Lama and other saints like Mother Teresa and Gandhi simply don't turn it off! They go into the station and see a Precious Child of God taking their Divine Credit Card for the Sacred Gas, and they don't hide it from that person taking the credit card. Their whole presence says, 'It's all equally sacred.' Getting gas, praying in church, buying a bagel, are all the same Mysterious Miracle. They live in Love, so of course they are in Love with the gas station attendant. And at the bagel shop, they'll be in Love with the bagel boy." -Bo Lozoff, Deep and Simple / Human Kindness Foundation I love that Bo uses the word "pretending" to describe it, because that's exactly what it feels like. Often when I interact with strangers, I pretend that I don't love them down to the core because I don't want to freak them out. Truth is, though, I'm tired of using a dimmer switch on my Light. I want to just go on and Love 'em out loud and arms wide.< Less
