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.

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….

Humanity…

…is tuning up…

…and it’s tuning into the key of ‘see’.

This a wonderful waltz towards transfiguration as we, as a body, start to embody being a body.

The media and your lizard brain will convince you that it’s moving towards something that is unraveling and that the arc is bending towards chaos. And you will continue to see it that way if that’s what you want to see.

But if we truly want to understand this and see with the eyes of possibility, we’re going to need to invoke our imagination.

Think of what we have in common..hope, heart, blood, beauty, sorrow, and soul. And the list stretches endlessly longer than what is different about us.

Won’t you be my neighbor?
