Today’s BEST. THING. EVER!!! I post a lot about homelessness in my GOOD NEWS! and BEST. THING. EVER!!! articles. It’s an issue that hits close to home because I spent a year homeless in New York City. But it wasn’t until today when I was searching for an article for today’s post that I realized how big of a need hygiene materials are needed and necessary for homeless people. Specifically sanitary napkins, tampons, pads and other such things women specifically need. It never even occurred to me these things would be in short supply at homeless shelters. Maybe it’s because I’m a man and having to experience a period without the aid of sanitary napkins has never really crossed my mind. Again that is, until today. Well here’s an article about one woman’s crusade to make sure every homeless woman has tampons, pads and whatever else she needs during that time of the month. And her crusade has turned into a world-wide phenomenon. Inside the article is also how you can help. So if you feel moved to help, I encourage you to do so. Take a look:
This isn’t a GOOD NEWS! or a BEST. THING. EVER!!! But it’s good to be reminded of the people of Flint, Michigan who are still suffering even though national and international news have moved on to the next hot news story. Here’s a look at Flint, one year later. Check it out:
Good Morning Meditators! We handle a bit of business to kick off the show – mondaymorningmeditation.com is up and running, I’ll be at the December Spirit Mind and Body Expo presented by OPERA on December 10th and 11th, and I want to travel the world doing meditation classes and psychic readings (have passport will travel) – and then we get into the gravy of the episode. Today we talk about my most recent surgery (2016 – the year of surgeries!) to put a tube in my left ear. We talk about the metaphysical properties of physical ailments and how there may be a connection between the two (research and come to your own conclusions). And we talk about how this most recent surgery inspired a new series of meditations on the senses. I have NO CLUE how I’ll incorporate smell and taste into the conversation, so I’m asking you to help me out with ideas for those meditations. We’ll start out this week with hearing, next week will be sight followed by touch, smell and taste in the last three weeks. Then we get into the meditation itself.

Today’s BEST. THING. EVER!!! This barbershop gives two dollars back to kids who read while they’re getting their hair cut. I love it! Plus it gives the love of reading to kids when they need it most. And to boot the books these kids are reading are FILLED with POSITIVE images of African-American men and women. People they can aspire to be like when they grow up. Kudos all around to this barbershop! Check ’em out:
GOOD NEWS!!! Miracles happen everyday. You never know how the Universe will move on your behalf. Here’s another story that drives home that point in a million-to-one kind of a way. Thank heaven for miracles! Take a look:
Today’s BEST. THING. EVER!!! So on Monday’s podcast I talked about wanting to find a boyfriend. And how I have had to have the patience of a saint to find a boyfriend. And a bookcase. (I still haven’t found either btw, which only adds fuel to my impatient fire.) Well this video proves I’ve been going about it all wrong! What I need to do is have surgery, (a little nip and tuck never hurt anybody) get high on the good shit (anesthesia) and hit on hot nurses! That’s the key to my eternal happiness! Thank you Luke! And HELLOOOOOO NURSE!!! YOWSA!!!

Today’s BEST. THING. EVER!!! I love this clip because it’s pure unadulterated joy.

And this clip is proof positive of it. Take a look:
Good Morning Meditators! We take care of some business at the beginning and then we jump right into today’s juicy goodness. In today’s episode we talk about bookcases, boyfriends and wishes that may or may not come true. We also talk about how patience is a virtue and how it’s wise to wait for the good stuff. All in all it’s about patience. And emotionally unavailable lovers. And bookcases. But mostly about patience.

Homework assignment: Watch “Bruce Almighty” starring Jim Carrey, Jennifer Aniston and Morgan Freeman as God. Also, watch these two classic Bugs Bunny cartoons about patience:
GOOD NEWS!!! Sexual assault has been in the news a LOT lately, thanks to high profile news items like the Brock Turner rape case and the remarks a United States presidential candidate has made. Unfortunately, especially in the latter case, there seems to be a lot of finger pointing and bickering and yelling without any sort of satisfactory resolution to the matter. Thankfully, in a RARE vote of bipartisanship, both houses of Congress have come together to pass a bit of legislation that will make it easier for rape victims to have free access to rape kits and for those rape kits to not be destroyed until the statute of limitations has run out. And that’s why it’s today’s GOOD NEWS!!! Check it out:
