Wild & Wise!

May 9, 2017

How to be wise and wild. That can seem like a puzzle.

 

How can you be wise in the eyes of the world, and yet be wild? Shouldn’t you be well-prepared, careful, frugal, organized, steady, putting yourself last if you are wise?

 

No! You can be wildly curious, and brave and discover new worlds and think strange thoughts and celebrate how free you are and yet show your wisdom clearly!

 

It is that holy poetry and singing we are after. … It is the wild singing we are after, our chance to use the wild language we are learning by heart under the sea. When a woman speaks her truth, fires up her intention and feeling, staying tight with the instinctive nature, she is singing, she is living in the wild breath-stream of the soul. To live this way is a cycle in itself, one meant to go on, go on, go on. ~ Clarissa Pinkola Estes

 

 

To be deeply aware of one’s own wisdom is immensely empowering. In the process, you have to be curious, you definitely discover new worlds within and without. Thinking unfamiliar thoughts is par for the course when you are living from your own wisdom. It’s a heady feeling, knowing what the right decision is for you.

 

Don’t miss out on this. Like Thornton Wilder said: “We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.”

What non-physical thing can you not do without?

 

Freedom. Grace. Unconditional love. Joy. Excitement. Boundaries. Respect. Softness. Belief. Compassion.

 

The answers are as varied as humankind. And there are no wrong ones. Each answer is beautiful.

 

Becoming aware of what it is that you will not compromise on, what is so important to you, is a great realization. Sometimes just the awareness of what this is for you, can be huge in your life.

 

Here is an advanced step:

 

Once you know what your answer is (and I invite you to feel into that before you carry on reading, if you have not done so yet), call your answer X and then ask: How much of X am I offering to myself?

 

The answer to that little question has the power to change your whole life. In most cases, no matter how highly we value X, we often do not fully gift ourselves the sovereignty of X.

 

Very interesting, right? Why would you not embody this quality that you value so highly?

 

The answers to that question will lead you on a path of discovery that will most certainly include personal growth.

 

Dare to try it.

 

freedom is my highest value

How Donald Trump is helping you

January 30, 2017

This past weekend I was struck by the spontaneous and immediate reaction of people in the  USA in the aftermath of their new president’s order on Friday.   This order, banning even long-time residents of the USA, took immediate effect, and severely impacted  those already in the air at the time of signing the order.

Random Meetings (a Celebration of the Being of Kimberly Davis, 43)

July 12, 2015

  Virtually skimming the swell in Surf Lessons (Nona Jordan‘s unforgettable online class which I had dropped into like a diver ready to plumb the depths, but with no idea what is waiting beneath the surface), the waves of the universe knocked me and Kimberly Davis and several others together last year. My breath was […]
