I think the revelation was sparked by my friends who are in divorce conversations – what I hear the most is what they want the other person to say or do that they are not saying or doing. The love is not usually in question, but communication IS in question. So. In my love and suffering for my girlfriends, I contacted a deep longing for my husband.
what are the tools you are using to bless you right now?
what are the practices and commitments you are making to keep peace in your inner world?
what are the ways in which you choose to bountiful in the face of challenging times?
We may feel downright discouraged.
That is why we have to choose
to be bountiful no matter what.
To create and live a lifework, for me anyway, means there is a YOU. A being on the other side who is the inspiration for our offerings, our work, the expression of our hearts. The people we may not know, but in our hearts we long to bless and connect with.
I have heard that sometimes,
we do not want others to shine.
Don’t listen to those who are light dimmers.
Beware of those who think being small
is somehow being appropriate.
It is not always appropriate to be appropriate.
What comes first?
The dream or the wing?
Enter the income stream in your little golden boat and dream
and work and pray and play and do not stop. Keep going.
It will almost always seem impossible.
Jesus spoke of the peace that passes understanding, and loving our neighbors as ourselves, and even, loving our enemies. When my mountain top experience (which did happen on a mountain top) happened, I was so overcome with emotion! With tears. With anger. With passion. It was indeed like a third birthing.
And passion must be expressed.
Soul must be shared.
And dreams must be lived.
There are different forms of activism. And I think that those on the front lines of suffering, and those suffering, benefit in some metaphysical way from those us who dance for healing – who paint for transformation – who make chicken soup for family members – who garden to bring healing to the earthy – who do yoga bring world peace. Does it sound -oh-so-california?
