Don’t forget to pack these.

Intentions – They will be your map.

Set your intentions to create and acquire, to give and to receive, and to enjoy and to be. If you’re only intent is to get a job or obtain a college degree, expect frustration when that intention comes to fruition.

Values = They will be your compass.

We all need a North Star….A song to know and claim in the midst of the noise…Mantras to engage when the headwinds hit us. Align these values with the grain of love. This won’t fail you.

Wisdom = She will be your companion.

Never walk away from Wisdom—she guards your life;
    love her—she keeps her eye on you.
Above all and before all, do this: Get Wisdom!
    Write this at the top of your list: Get Understanding!
Throw your arms around her—believe me, you won’t regret it;
    never let her go—she’ll make your life glorious.
She’ll garland your life with grace,
    she’ll festoon your days with beauty. Proverbs 4:6-9

A Beginner’s Mind

Remember when you first came to know and experience something, some place, or someone new?

It was all about learning their borders, nuances, and idiosyncrasies.

Learning was enough.

And while your questions here may have led you to some answers, you were always led to another series of questions to open you up into the unique and vast beauty of this person, place, or thing.

Together you became something. Something that had never been before prior to this relationship of experience, awareness, and connection.

The end was never “in mind”.

The thrill was at hand and in the now.

Oh how we need our cup to overflow with never-ending beginnings.

A few words about few words

If you don’t know a lot about something, it’s probably easy to say a lot of words about it.

It’s funny how our self proclaimed expert minds are sometimes externally louder than what our humble hands have internally graced and experienced.

On the other hand, if you truly know the ins and outs and beauty of something, you hardly know what to say…And when you do, your heart breaks as you try to paint its form and give a description.

What is the silence that shines out of your broken heart?

What do you know by name, by essence, by soul, by heart?

Tell us a little about that.

Your little insight here is going to take us a long way.

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….
