Here I am.
For those of us who believe in the intelligence of Love, and those who are open to considering it. For those of us in pain––from the deeply personal, to the planetary sorrow we can taste. For those of us who have Joy to offer because we are removing obstacles to it––we know that Joy is our original state, that our pleasure empowers us. For those of us interested in a True Reality… where spirituality is way more rock n’ roll than religious, where the heart calls the shots, where we believe it to see it.
For so many of us.
Everything here is meant to lead back to your own heart’s wisdom.
I’m interested in the True Reality of Love. The Love that clarifies, includes, and redeems. The Love that as A Course In Miracles puts it, "wants to join out of mutual abundance.” The Love that rushes into scarcity and division with generosity. I aspire to Love more than I am loved—it only recently occurred to me to give that a shot. It’s difficult. And amazing.
Freewill is a brilliant cosmological design. You’re your own guru. I’m aiming at your own wisdom.
I don’t have ten steps or a quick fix. Just some very personal learnings that you may resonate with.
The Prayer of St. Francis
Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace;
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is error, the truth;
Where there is doubt, the faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master,
Grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled, as to console;
To be understood, as to understand;
To be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
What you can’t control:
The weather. Mean people. How people interpret history. How people interpret you.
What people think about anything and everything. What people say to you. What people say to anyone else. Who or what anyone loves. How anyone feels about anything.
What you can control:
How you feel, the thoughts you think, what you do about what you feel and think.
