When I turned on the program, the voice of the speaker was familiar but I couldn't place it. Then Krista introduced her and I remembered, from a tape I use in the car, "Road Sage." The most beautiful moments for me were the saying "Sweetheart, you are in pain," as a mantra for worry and anxiety, and the Neruda poem at the end. But Sylvia's nature is such that even her voice carries such metta, such kindness. She is so soothing, so reassuring. She teaches very simply, as in that quote from the Dalai Lama, "my religion is kindness." Infinite worlds lie beyond that statement, but it's simple enough anyone of any tradition or none can follow it. Thank you for this - why Detroit? But then, why not?
