a cup of soul

Remember who you were when you pulled through the darkest night of the soul. Remember how you rallied, how you remained functional, even if barely. Remember how you changed, defied your genetics and kept on going. Remember how you held It all together as everything fell apart. Remember all the times you were stronger than you felt and wiser than you thought. Remember how you had a galaxy within you when you thought there was nothing left. So that the next time you know you’re going to need a wildfire instead of a match to get through the darkness, remember the survivor within.

how to pause? at the kitchen table- with a cup and a friend- on your mat- on your cushion- on the trail- in the bar- at the crossroads of wherever you show up next…..

inquiry for today~ you probably love very well…..how do you know how?

spirit here

Though we know one another’s names and recognize one another’s faces, we never know what destiny shapes each life. The script of individual destiny is secret; it is hidden behind and beneath the sequence of happenings that is continually unfolding for us. Each life is a mystery that is never finally available to the mind’s light or questions. That we are here is a huge affirmation; somehow life needed us and wanted us to be. To sense and trust this primeval acceptance can open a vast spring of trust within the heart. It can free us into a natural courage that casts out fear and opens up our lives to become voyages of discovery, creativity, and compassion. No threshold need be a threat, but rather an invitation and a promise. Whatever comes, the great sacrament of life will remain faithful to us, blessing us always with visible signs of invisible grace. We merely need to trust.
