Is that true? Practicing DISCERNMENT…

The ability to discern isn’t a purely intellectual faculty—it’s the benefit of being more identified with your soul nature​.​ And it isn’t a narrowing of focus. It’s actually a wider, more inclusive point of view—as if our hearts were open apertures. When we see more of our whole selves—shadow/light, pain/power, then we can see more of the whole truth around us.

Unmet longings and the Bride of Fire

Unmet longings and the Bride of Fire

I used to believe that my unmet longings were a punishment. The longings pushed downward to a small loneliness.

I healed some. I learned how to grieve career paths, friendships, partnerships, and children I wouldn’t be having. And, amazingly, grief brought me so much closer to being alive. Grieving for my faded dreams woke me up.

The Stone-Hearted. The Half-Hearted. And the Full-Hearted.

The Stone-Hearted. The Half-Hearted. And the Full-Hearted.

The Full-Hearteds will be called crazy, idealistic, rebellious, too soft, too New Age, irrational, impractical, so angry, disloyal, righteous, moralistic, idealistic, unrealistic, unreasonable… and (gasp!)… utopian. It won’t be the first time, it will not be the last. That’s more than alright. This moment was made for the Full-Hearteds to let love rule. We see the beautiful ideal and we know that we’re all a part of its unfolding.

The Initiated Woman

The Initiated Woman

The Initiated Woman has bled. She’s bled from blind decisions that sliced her esteem; she’s bled from unguarded boundaries being obliterated; and she’s bled willingly, with love, because that’s what you do when people you adore are anemic or they’ve been punctured by life—you give them some of your blood. Here, I have lots, it’s fresh and warm. I’ll make more.

“You know what’s going to come of this moment in history?” asked Lauryn Hill. What?! Injustice, division, collusion?

“Beautiful art,” she said. “It’s happened before, and it will happen again. People’re going to make things. Artists make art from struggle.”

Her gift to everyone that night was firm Faith.

She alchemized fear into a higher vision. Like artists do.

Pay What You Wish… always and forever?

Pay What You Wish… always and forever?

It’s a wild time to be alive. Bold choices are in order.

My birthday week is complete. Usually, we’d be packing up the Pay What You Wish banners. But that was the old way. I’m daring myself to take this further. We’ll see what happens. So! I’m leaving the Pay What You Wish doors open through the summer. (And hopefully always.)
