I was meant to slow down and listen to my soul. I needed to give myself the permission to work in a way that was nurturing and in my strengths. 

My soul is innately curiosity. It has a thirst for mystery and adventure.  This longing led me to places outside of my comfort zone. It took me into my wilderness.

I exhausted myself writing, writing, writing until something that was mine started to emerge.

The first question that came through was this:

Do we really have to choose between practical & magical?

On this first day of fall I'm feeling the shift of seasons and the memories of this past summer are melting into a pool of gratitude. Love is extraordinary power which dissolves so many ideas we hold about ourselves and allows us to feel into the truth of our being. As I fall more deeply in love with my work and my life I understand this gorgeous pointer by Clarissa Pinkola Estés :

"Love in its fullest form is a series of deaths and rebirths. 

We let go of one phase, one aspect of love, and enter another.

Passion dies and is brought back.

Pain is chased away and surfaces another time.

To love means to embrace and at the same time to withstand many endings, and many many beginnings- all in the same relationship.”

Is it failure or just a deepening of experience? A look at Creative Visionary work and Weaving Beauty on a New Moon in Scorpio. 
“I don’t care how long it takes me, I’m going somewhere beautiful”I wrote those words in my journal and then on my whiteboard because …I wanted to be reminded everyday to let beauty guide me. The ups and downs of running a solo-business take a toll on our emotional and physical well being. The graveyard of products, collaborations that …

"If you demand in some subtle way to be loved, 
even if you get love, it is never enough. 
In the next moment, the demand reasserts itself, 
and you need to be loved again. 

But as soon as you let go, there is knowing
in that instant that there is love here already. 

The mind is afraid to let go of its demand 
because the mind thinks that if it lets go, it is not
going to get what it wants - as if demanding works. "

My truest desire is to let myself be revealed through relationship and to learn to dance with the beloved. In this dance, in this great dance of discovering, becoming, surrendering, and expressing... the mystery never stops.

It changes form.
It is alchemy. 
This is part 3 of a 3 part series on showing up for work when things are falling apart. Part 1 explores the importance of being sensitive to your heart; Part 2 is on how the obstacle becomes the path.In this final post we’ll look at the beauty and the gift of new beginnings. If you’ve followed …

“To be creative means to be in love with life. You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it.” –Osho

This Osho quote stirs my heart because it reminds me of the first desire I had to know something about being in love with life. 

My first inquiry was "do I enjoy myself?" I had heard the spiritual teacher Adyashanti end all of his messages with those two words: Enjoy Yourself. It dawned on me that I didn't know that experience directly. I enjoyed things, good experiences, food, dance, books, beauty, other people... yet I couldn't say with any kind of certainty that I enjoyed myself.

This simple question and wanting to know for myself started a quest. I had no idea of where it was going to take me and good thing I didn't because I would NOT have wanted to go. I've connected to love through the very act of releasing the one I wanted to share my life with. The doorway of pain opened a path of discovery. know what could only be known through curiosity and turning inward, over and over again to know a deeper truth.

Enjoy yourself means you have to know who you are. It turns into a love of life. It is infinitely creative.

"Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field.

 I'll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.

Ideas, language, even the phrase "each other"
 doesn't make any sense."
