Trippin Over your own Two Feet

»Posted by in Inspiration | 0 comments

You are walking down the street, strutting, thinking that you have finally got it all figured out.  Then BAM.  Now you are on your face in the middle of public space mortified.  But you get up and shake it off.  Then two steps later, BAM.  No matter how many times you get up, or how far you walk along, you inevitably trip on your own two feet again.  I think everyone has experienced this round and round again circumstance at some point in their life.   I have been in my own continual loop for awhile in my life.  There have been brief moments of respite, but then I fall into that same skipping groove on the record.  These blind spots, no matter where they originated, have the potential to keep us crawling on our journey.  But how do we see these blind spots?...

A Reflection on a Leap of Faith

»Posted by in Inspiration | 1 comment

Leaps of faith- it seems like my whole year has been riddled with them.  It’s probably been a big highlight in your lives too.  How incredibly terrifying and humbling to step out over the void and jump.  To look the universe and yourself in the eyes and trust that your team will not let you fall.  And how beautiful to know our guides breathe a sigh of relief when we do so… because hey, now we are getting somewhere. Besides my incredible leaps of faith with my love life, I had to trust that I knew best for myself.  Funny thing about that is that you kind of need to know who you are.  That question, “Who are you?” knocked me on my ass quite a few times this year.  I had this silly notion that other people could live true to themselves, but that it was an...

Rise with Me

“I am 100% against religion.”  I read this comment recently on Facebook. It seems strange to me that someone could be against something that has united people for thousands of year.  Religion has brought people together, inspired them to be great, and to reassure them that death is not the end.  Yes, it has brought war, death, and destruction of humanity; but I ask you did religion asked to be made?   Or did we birth it to better explain our lives that seem inconsequential while staring into the expanse of stars? I am not innocent of this theory.  Once upon a time, what seems an age ago, I renounced religion and deemed it a bad business.  I believed it wholly responsible for the destruction of culture and civilizations. But slowly and tentatively I have come back...

Transcending Time and Space

Interstellar has pushed it’s way into my top ten favorite films list (which let’s face it is more like 50 favorites).  I went into it expecting to like it, but I didn’t realize that I would finish the movie in tears, forcing back a hysteric sob while the credits rolled. It moved me completely.  I’ve been trying to figure out why. Maybe because it took me on a journey filled to the brink with imagination and gorgeous aesthetics.  Things that we will never see brought into a focus that to the rational mind feels beyond impossible, but to heart feels frighteningly real. I cried because of truths hid between the layer of this movie.  Underneath the grandiose graphics, incredible scenery, and impossible imagination were red lines of truth....

Pause

»Posted by in Inspiration | 0 comments

Patience is a virtue… and one that I lack.  I’ll admit it.  I was not/am not one of those children waiting for the birthday cake at the party.  Give it to me NOW, because I know what I need.  It could be a bi-product of society or the fact that I’m a Sagittarius, but the “I need it NOW” gene flows fiercely through my veins. So obviously when I moved, everything was supposed to work its self out right away.  Have a great job, move out, go back to school all within three months is achievable right?  …NOPE, at least not this time for me.  My last great “give me now” of the year came and went when I moved. Then the Universe pressed Pause. And of course, I chose not to listen. I’ve been rushing around all year, in...
