Naming it.

Once you can name it one of two things will happen:

  1. If it is negative and something that is not serving you, it will loosen its grip on you.
  2. If it is serving you for greater connection and wholeness, you will gain greater momentum towards it.

May the metaphors be with you.

Peace out…

…won’t be possible without allowing some peace in.

So we must choose how we will see and posture ourselves today.

For how we see is how we will be.

Yes, the eye is indeed the lamp of the body.

Every Sunday we hold a picture that was first stroked with the paint from Monday’s eyes.

Are you open or are you closed today?

This will affect your painting today and tomorrow.

For if we are closed, we will paint with the stumbling colors of cynicism, critique, and separation.

But if we are open, we will paint with the flowing colors of possibility, hope, and healing.

I’ve never seen the word pain hidden in the word paint until today.

What is mine to do?

Bad questions tend to give us bad answers.

When we wonder what we are supposed to be doing with our life, we almost always miss the electricity in the inch of dirt we are occupying.

Is there an interesting book spine on a shelf waiting for your grasp? Leave your phone and social polishing and sit with the words of this book for a while.

Is there an interesting conversation that needs to begin? Hit send, hit call.

Life tends to become interesting the more we become interested in it.

Once interested, begin doing something you enjoy with this interest only for the purposes of enjoying it.

And then do it again.

And then do it again.

And then take notes.

And then do it again.

And then do it for someone.

And then do it for a group.

Until you learn lead to yourself we’ll be waiting for you to lead us.

And it’s your curiosity that’s waiting to lead you….

Universal Suggestions

Listen to disruptions.

Celebrate small successes.

Exchange words in your vernacular like working, building, and producing with crafting, cooking, writing, gardening, or painting. The results will taste better.

Hold your truth with humility.

Embrace paradox.

Spy for beauty and then tell us when and where you found it.

Obey your body.

Center yourself often in gratitude.

Keep learning and sharing what you’re learning.

Enjoy.

Power and Force

The power we all possess is universal.

This power is gentle, wide, and unlike most things we’ve been schooled into thinking and knowing as powerful.

It isn’t so much about your work as it is about your awakening.

It is well learned in the roots and layers of things.

It knows that a lot of instruments, timing, and tuning must take place for the music to happen.

And then there’s force.

Force isn’t our friend, even though it will do everything it can to make us think so.

Force knows nothing of possibility.

Force can’t imagine a place of paradox to be true.

Force wins the match of the day but loses at the game of life.

Force is the opposite of flow.

But power…

Power loves the process of all things.

Power pursues compassion.

Power includes, transcends, enlarges, and enlivens everything it touches.

Power knows the possibility that is packed into the unity that comes with both individual the and the collective whole.

Power is married to patience.

Power is vulnerable.

And your practice with this power that you behold is the gateway to unlimited joy and open-handed ease with your days.

Smile.

You just flexed the most powerful muscle you have…your soul.
