I saw a clip from this video and I learned quite a bit from it. Unfortunately I don’t see much of the video online but I would like to see the whole thing and recommend anyone interested check out this link and resources.
The fact of the matter is that we are all just living, breathing, thinking, feeling, experiencing beings. While we are alive we don’t seem to have a choice in this state of affairs, no matter how difficult it gets. So it follows for me, that its a good thing to be completely OK with whatever this life entails from moment to moment. After all, we have no ‘choice’ to change this exact moment. But, because of so many factors most of us have a pretty hard time feeling OK ALL of the time. For me, meditation, spiritual study, relaxation and remembering give my Self a chance to catch up to that Natural place of Truth in the present moment where being OK is the default and again I’m home; just a living, breathing, feeling, thinking, experiencing being. : ) Peace.

"Our deepest concern, however, lies in the fact that funding for this event appears to come from the American Family Association, an organization labeled a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. The American Family Association and its leadership have a long track record of anti-gay speech and have actively worked to discriminate against the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community. The American Family Association and its leadership have also been stridently anti-Muslim, going so far as to question the rights of Muslim Americans to freely organize and practice their faith. We believe it is inappropriate for our governor to organize a religious event funded by a group known for its discriminatory stances."
