So, a couple of months ago I was on the telephone deeply immersed in a long and somewhat boring conversation about business, music, career, choices, options, and plans…. Yes, important things, but, ugh……. My heart was begging me to stop thinking and talking and just start singing and bust down the walls of fear and rigidity…. And I found myself doodling; first a heart, then a banner, and then the word ‘occupy’ and the initial ‘st’…..
Of course we all have been following and supporting the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ movement, but I found myself thinking how much courage is required to truly occupy our own hearts; to be really vulnerable and real in this crazy and sometimes scary world; to spread love and authenticity in the face of hate and, even worse, indifference. And I looked at the picture I had drawn and was reminded of the banner flying above Arjuna’s chariot, a flag of Lord Hanuman carrying the mountain of healing herbs back to Lanka to save Lakshman; the supreme power of love which can, literally, move mountains and revive the dead. Do you guys know who was Arjuna’s charioteer? Well, I’m sure some of you do… It was none other than Sri Krishna Himself, the divine Lord of Love!
Ok, so I liked my picture so much that I called our friends at Mantralogy and said “hey, do you guys want to make an ‘occupy love street’ tee shirt?” they said “sure, but who’s gonna design the image?” and I said “it’s already done!”
And that’s the story of these lovely blue 100% Organic Alternative Apparel Cotton Crews. They’re available in Men’s (S-XL) and Women’s (S-L scoop neck) for $29.98.
Occupy Our Own Hearts and let love wash away and heal the wounds of this dark age known as ‘Kali Yuga’.
