September’s equinox marks the dawn of our most haunted season, and so begins our subtle longing for hearth fires and cooler winds. Marking the transition from summer to autumn with simple ceremony awakens our ancestral kinship with nature’s rhythms, with that sacred and holy wild to which we belong. Such rituals need not be elaborate events that overburden an already cluttered schedule; quite conversely, our rituals should allow for the quiet, the ethereal, and the spacious to seep into our busy, screen-driven days. Our rituals should enliven our innate wildness by giving it room to move, to dance, and to alchemize all that is stagnant and stuck within those forward-thinking and past-dwelling psyches of ours. Our rituals should be simple, and the wild within us craves practical magick and accessible ceremony.

Many fantasize about dramatically changing their lives — living in accordance with their ideals rather than the exigencies of job, bills, and possessions. William Powers actually does it. In his book Twelve by Twelve, Powers lived in an off-grid tiny house in rural North Carolina. In New Slow City, he and his wife, Melissa, inhabited a Manhattan micro-apartment in search of slow in the fastest city in the world. In Dispatches from the Sweet Life: One Family, Five Acres, and a Community’s Quest to Reinvent the World, the couple, with baby in tow, search for balance, community, and happiness in a small town in Bolivia. They build an adobe house, plant a prolific orchard and organic garden, and weave their life into a community of permaculturists, bio-builders, artists, and creative businesspeople. Can this Transition Town succeed in the face of encroaching North American capitalism, and can Powers and the other settlers find the balance they’re seeking?

Fresh on the #NWLBlog, we share an excerpt from the introduction to the #AlanWatts classic, THE MEANING OF #HAPPINESS. It's amazing how relevant his words are despite being written 78 years ago! He was truly a man ahead of his time. https://bit.ly/2BBZvYU

A key element of Dan Millman’s The Life You Were Born to Live — Revised 25th Anniversary Edition, as in the earlier edition, is a major section on the universal spiritual laws that can guide us to live wisely and well. Presented in Part Four of the book, the laws are especially useful in helping us overcome the hurdles on each of the forty-five individual life paths described in the book.

We hope you’ll enjoy this excerpt, in which Dan shares some background on these laws of Spirit.

I love Donald Trump, but I don’t like him.

I think he’s racist, greedy, narcissistic, devoid of empathy and compassion, and the unapologetic perpetrator of sexual assault on numerous women. I find him to be a profoundly dangerous and despicable human being. But I do love him.

I love him when I remember his humanity, when I remember he was once an innocent, curious, loving child like all of us. I love him when I imagine how miserable he must be to act with such insecurity and hatred, and when I consider how unloved he must feel to show such lack of love for others. I love him when I remind myself that I am dedicated to love, and that real love has no conditions, not even with Donald Trump. Not with anyone.

Don’t get me wrong. I’ve imagined him choking on a Big Mac, and a KFC drumstick, and a Taco Bell burrito. I’ve envisioned him falling down the stairs of Air Force One, and off the stage at one of his rallies, only to be trampled by adoring fans vying for a selfie. I’ve dreamt of Violet, Judy, and Doralee (from 9 to 5) having their way with him like they did with Mr. Hart, chanting “sexist egotistical lying hypocritical bigot” as they hog-tie him to a roasting spit. I’ve thought of him having a heart attack, and a stroke — not enough to kill him, but only because I’ve wanted him to suffer.

Whether we realize it or not, we are always telling stories. On a first date or job interview, at a sales presentation or therapy appointment, with family or friends, we are constantly narrating events and interpreting emotions and actions. In his compelling new book, Storyworthy: Engage, Teach, Persuade, and Change Your Life through the Power of Storytelling, storyteller extraordinaire Matthew Dicks presents wonderfully straightforward and engaging tips and techniques for constructing, telling, and polishing stories that will hold the attention of your audience (no matter how big or small). He shows that anyone can learn to be an appealing storyteller, that everyone has something “storyworthy” to express, and, perhaps most important, that the act of creating and telling a tale is a powerful way of understanding and enhancing your own life.

Together with her fiancé, Dr. John Waddell, Susan Ariel Rainbow Kennedy, a.k.a. SARK, coauthored Succulent Wild Love about relationship liberation, offering guidance and wisdom from the wonderful and playful life they lived together as a couple. Dr. Waddell died shortly after their book was published, and this week on the New World Now podcast, SARK sits down with host Kim Corbin to share how her practice of deeply grieving while also wildly living — which work together, just like a bird’s wings — has allowed her to feel more love more often while navigating the loss of her fiancé.
