Keith's Rolling Meditation

I've decided to take a somewhat long rolling meditation. This will be a solo bike ride of about 1700 miles, meandering from northern Wisconsin to NYC. Why? I believe it's important to hold the space of peaceful solitude with nature. The world is filled with so much destructive energy and action. We can counterbalance this by using our bodies for good and for peace. Your donations will help provide me with supplies such as a bike, a tent, tools, food and travel time.
The bicycle uses no fossil fuels! It runs on phsyical strength, desire and human will power. This is channeled into a love for life and a desire to commune with it. The Rolling Meditation creates the space for experiencing a bigger picture and sensing beauty in life. It's like when you take a stroll, how good you feel while doing it, your mind opens up and you can really fill your lungs.
We can be in nature, in our lives, fully, without destroying each other or the environment. A wall of trees, an open field, a grey sky, the sunshine, the bike. If there's a cause in this ride it's this: Nature is us and we are it. So let's be in it fully!
INCENTIVES ARE GREAT!
You can feel free to just give and know that your donation will help hold the space of peace and meditation while the pedals turn. A donation can be a reminder that you can tune into yourself in the same way, no matter where you are, at anytime.
