Lounging Can Change Your Mood

i'm more gentle these days
towards myself
if i'm sad (which is quite often)
i'll play Rob Thomas in the background
i'll lounge around in the mornings
and enjoy my coffee with a scone
delight in yoga and the clarity it brings
i may be ruined, damaged, broken
but you would never know it
my happiness still comes through my wounds
who's going to love me?
i use to wonder
now i answer "I Will"

Intimate Relationships: The Power of Transformation

No matter how spiritually “woke” we may think we are, we still have deeper issues which can only be worked out within the context of relationship.
Left alone, we settle into comfortable patterns that limit the range of our emotional awareness and personal expression.
However, once we step out of our comfort zone and open up to others, previously unnoticed/denied aspects of ourselves begin to emerge.
At first, they make waves in the calm waters of our hearts, evoking passion and excitement. But when we let them in deeply enough, it’s like stirring up a pool of still water - all the heavy and messy things which settled at the bottom of our awareness are forced to emerge to the surface.
When our otherwise hard-to-reach issues get stirred up for us to look at, we have an opportunity to embrace these fragmented parts of ourselves, to become more integrated and whole. This is a blessing in disguise, albeit a challenging one.
Intimate relationships demand a depth of intensity and vulnerability which is the fuel for both transcendent passion and crippling conflict. This is why many esoteric teachings point to the “polar couple/ twin flame” archetype as the most powerful of alchemical unions. Intimate relationships have the potential for astoundingly accelerated transformation.
Whether that transformation leads to conscious evolution or unconscious sabotage depends entirely on each person’s individual state of Being.
If you and your partner aren’t engaged in sincere, deep, holistic self-work, there can only be 2 outcomes for this kind of relationship.
Either you and your partner will settle into a relatively comfortable but very limited relationship of matrix-based pleasures and pursuits where your dysfunctions harmonize, but leave little room for expansion of the soul…
OR… the relationship will dissolve to make way for something greater in your life.
This is the case with the vast majority of relationships in the world, which is why people are often so dissatisfied in relationships.
However, if you and your partner are committed to nurture the healing alchemical fire within each other, the richness of this kind of relationship is extraordinary.

Ruined City

there's a ruined city in me
where friends and family
from our history
have passed away
where the good and bad memories of us
are cemented secrets
and the life we built
brick by brick
now is buried under layers of dirt
there are beautiful skies
that grace my city
time has seen to it
that it's well preserved
in case i ever decide to visit
to dig up our memories
and cast a prayer
so the gods
will safeguard
what our love built
and what was swallowed up
by your sins

Self Love: A Lifetime Practice

Self love is NOT a destination, it is a daily practice. It is a way of life.

To love yourself is to show up for yourself every day.

Sometimes that’s easy.

Sometimes it’s ugly and difficult.

Sometimes its walking in sunshine with deep gratitude and a huge blissful smile on your face.

Sometimes it’s having really awkward and tough conversations.

Sometimes it’s stretching WAY out of your comfort zone, being scared as hell and nailing it.

Sometimes it’s letting others down because to honor yourself meant saying no.

Sometimes it’s patting yourself on the back and saying “you’re doing a great job at this new thing, I know it’s scary but you’re doing great!”

What I do know, is if you’re expecting to arrive at self love, you’ll never get there. It’s not some pit stop on a road trip to excellence and approval.

It is a CHOICE that you make every single day, over and over for the rest of your life. It’s also absolutely necessary if you want a life you don’t need to escape from.
