The purpose of this blog is to provide a holding, attuned, and provocative space for the mysteries of your heart to unfold. All of you is welcome here, in all of your glory - the painful, the joyous, the heartbroken, and the weary. The invitation is to see your entire life as an expression of high-voltage, creative guidance, and for you to offer yourself to the endless and infinite dimension of love that is emerging within and around you right now.

You are endless
It is possible to discover that the purpose of the journey
is not to solve our problems or make us happy. And by insisting that our
inquiry, our practices, and even our intimate relationships function primarily
in this way we vastly limit what they are truly offering.
As emissaries of wholeness and depth, they have seeded an
invitation within you. To proclaim once and for all with the earth, the sun,
the moon, and the stars as your witness. With the roar of a lion or lioness,
shouting from the rooftop that you will no longer abandon your surging
immediate experience, pathologize your sensitivity, or turn from your raw achy
heart. But only honor and bow to the altar of your tender not-knowing.
As you continue along the way, yes, sometimes your problems
will be solved, sometimes the symptoms will go away, sometimes the feelings you
like will replace the ones you’d prefer be banished into the dark wood. But
your inquiry is no longer oriented around replacement. It is far too wild,
unprecedented, and creative for all that. As a pure expression of your love of
the truth, it is full-spectrum. For your longing will never be satisfied by
that which is partial.
Love has brought you to this very place that you are now,
as it continues its journey to know itself, through you and as you – by way of
your perception, emotions, feelings, and imagination; and by the signs and
symbols that it places along your path. Not so that you can fix something that
is broken, or even “heal” in any conventional sense, but so that you can connect
more deeply with your longing, to more clearly hear the call of the beloved
within you, and become more and more transparent the feast of the offering that
has been laid out before you: To be fully alive to and to fully participate in
the mystery as it makes its way into the world of time and space.
No longer oriented in how to get from “here to there,” but
endlessly fascinated with how it is that love wishes to infuse “here” with its
qualities. The path is endless. You are endless. Your heart is endless. And
love will continue to reveal this endlessness to you, in ways that are at times
peaceful, sweet, and soaked in pure joy. At other times, as wrathful,
disturbing, and awash with the transmutation of the dark.
Both equally grace and appearing now as vehicles of love,
and as infinite doorways into who and what you are. And what is to come.
