You Can Do This

  What makes your heart ache with longing, jealousy and/or dread? Go there. It’s your spirit recognizing a piece of itself that hasn’t yet found a home in your conscious awareness. It’s been locked out and wants to come home. What is it? Writing a book? (Or writing anything?) Making art? Travel? Paring down to … Continue reading You Can Do This

Sequel to Surrender

A friend suggested that the experience I wrote about in last week’s blog post amounted to a deep surrender, one of those moments of “I give up” that becomes “Here, take this” and transforms as I allows something greater to take over. And transform it did, as the next day a breakthrough arrived at my … Continue reading Sequel to Surrender

The Quickening

Yesterday I found myself yearning for a wordless place, a beautiful place where I could just be. I was tired of defining, concluding, reaching, yearning, improving, examining and, yes, growing.
