Embracing change, with chutzpah. Gratitudes March 6

I am so grateful today.

There’s so much healing going on. Healing and growth.

I am so grateful for my tribe, my community, of passionately spiritual and witchy priestesses.

When big changes are going on, as they are now, I am so grateful for the women and men who have gone before me who inspire me with their words and teachings.

I love this: The verse, attributed to Buddha, helps us keep moving forward even when we have loving attachment to what no longer serves us. This helps me/us see when it’s time to move on. It’s always important to examine and re-examine structures, to make sure there’s still alignment.

Do not accept any of my words on faith,
Believing them just because I said them.
Be like an analyst buying gold, who cuts, burns,
And critically examines his product for authenticity.
Only accept what passes the test
By proving useful and beneficial in your life.

And this beautiful verse, attributed to Kwan Yin.

Let the magic happen. It’s always there. Abundance and love are always there. Believe in the highest good. There is a higher essence to everything. The realm you’re in has a heaviness that mutes energy. You can penetrate through it, no matter how dark and heavy. Sometimes it has nothing to do with karma. Just don’t forget to keep it open. Don’t get too bogged down, don’t limit the brightness. Reach through the dark energy and grab it. You might see the smoke coming out of the chimney and you’ll even see the smoky sky. You need to reach through the smoke and bring the light to you. Remember the possibilities of something greater then are right here. Be willing to go to the lightness. Don’t feed off what is not right in the world.

Think about it. There is no contradiction. We are all one.

Everything contains the seed of its apparent opposite. — Oscar Ichazo

I also am inspired by this, which helps me remember I am not alone, I am guided, and spirit—the goddess—is always with me.

Anything you want to ask a teacher, ask yourself, and wait for the answer in silence. — Byron Katie.

And as I, and my sisters, contemplate and implement audacious change, I am reminded that what we do is for more than just ourselves. We set a powerful example.

As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. — Marianne Williamson.

So. Gratitude is in da house.

I am grateful for my tribe. For the willingness of my sisters and myself to do the hard stuff.

I am grateful for letting go of what no longer serves my highest good and moving on head up, tits out, even and especially when it’s challenging.

I’m a barely tamed hippie, sage, seasoned, sarcastic (not all the time any more, but still). I’m a mom, a daughter, sister, a neighbor, and a friend. I’ve been on this meandering journey — like you, probably — seeking a better connection to and experience of peace, harmony, and fun in every bit of life. I’m single, quite good at it, and mostly love it. I’m here for the conversations I get to have with you, which these days center on exploring the mystery and beauty of life, work, health, aging, and creative expression.
