How to Live

by Mark Chmiel

Jesus had his devotees
Dipa Ma had her devotees
Pat Geier has her devotees

Jesus sat with people
Dipa Ma sat with people
Pat Geier sits with people

Jesus placed his hands on someone in torment
Dipa Ma placed her hands on someone in torment
Pat Geier places her hands on someone in torment

Jesus embodied the heart and its treasure
Dipa Ma embodied meditation and its treasure
Pat Geier embodies accompaniment and its treasure

–Pat Geier is a therapist and activist who lives in Louisville, Kentucky. We’ve been friends for 34 years.
