Now Is the Time. Love Is the Action.

Friday, June 28th, 2013

While I am still celebrating the recent Supreme Court rulings on DOMA and Prop 8, I know the work is not done. There are still many states that do not have marriage equality. There are injustices that need to be changed around voting rights. Our work continues.

Peace isn’t passive. Sometimes peace looks like loud voices, other times contemplation. There is a time to expand and a time to contract. There is a time to sit and a time to stand.

There is always a time to love. Love is action.

As Byron Katie says, “I’ve heard people say that they cling to their painful thoughts because they’re afraid that without them they wouldn’t be activists for peace. “If I feel peaceful,” they say, “why would I bother taking action at all?”
My answer is “Because that’s what love does.”  To think that we need sadness or outrage to motivate us to do what’s right is insane. As if the clearer and happier you get, the less kind you become. As if when someone finds freedom, she just sits around all day with drool running down her chin. 

My experience is the opposite. Love is action.”

Now is the time. Love is the action.

Poem: Hometown

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

I sit in my hometown
Stop to get a slice
Pizza, ice tea, and a magazine
The peace of a Sunday starts 

Small local town 
Someone knows someone
Who knows everyone
I still get lost here

Sports topics surround me
And shopping of clothes
Sizes of shirts
What stores take returns

When did I start listening?
When did I stop listening?

My hometown
I left long ago
I return over and over
The ghost of the teenager
I long ago abandoned

Your order is ready
Time to leave
On the road
Over the bridge
The place of my birth
The city that took me in
When I had nothing

Now, where is home?
Here—right here
Still growing up

Compassion, Courage, and Breath

Thursday, June 20th, 2013

Sitting with compassion for others and myself led me to a beautiful meditation:

Fill yourself up with compassion with each breath. 

What do you look like when you are living with compassion? 

Show yourself some compassion right now. 

Allow your hand to move and breathe compassion into your body. 

Notice your body and breathe compassion. 

Let compassion move your hand. 

How are you transmitting compassion? 

What is your message of compassion today? 

Listen to compassion. 

Take a deeper breath in and out. 

Breathe compassion. 

When you see the world with compassion, what’s possible? 

And take a nice big breath. 

Be compassionate to you, always. 

Beam compassion with every interaction. 

And so it is.

As Pema Chödrön writes, “Just as nurturing our ability to love is a way of awakening bodhichitta, so also is nurturing our ability to feel compassion. Compassion, however, is more emotionally challenging than loving-kindness because it involves the willingness to feel pain. It definitely requires the training of a warrior. 


When we practice generating compassion, we can expect to experience our fear of pain. Compassion practice is daring. It involves learning to relax and allow ourselves to move gently toward what scares us. The trick to doing this is to stay with emotional distress without tightening into aversion, to let fear soften us rather than harden into resistance.” 

Stay with your breath. Stay with yourself. Stay with compassion.

Share the Good Stuff Now

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013

“Throw the flowers while they are alive” my friend would say. This quote has stuck with me for more than twenty years. It means we ought to say the loving thoughts, compliments, and kind words to people while they are living. I do my best to live this way as I compliment people daily, sometimes even strangers on the street. I can be found sharing kindness with the coffee vendor that serves me daily or even high-five a young boy who just graduated kindergarten.

I personally had people “throw flowers to me” after I shared with students my decision to step away as co-teacher of the Path of the White Mesa. I knew it was time to make space for a new path and expand my wild cosmic heart. After sharing about my heart-centered journey, I invited students to listen to their heart and where they are called to more deeply lead, serve, and love.

After sharing my gratitude with the students I had taught for more than six years, I received many responses filled with overwhelming appreciation and love. I hadn’t realized the impact I had with the participants and how much my presence meant to them. As students began sending their reflections and gratitude to me, I felt like it was hearing my eulogy while I was still alive.  

I am sharing some responses as a way to spread light, joy, and the impact of sharing kindness.

We all matter. Every one of us matters. Make sure the people in your life know just how blessed you feel.

I thank you always for sharing you and your gifts with us. May this new journey surround you in only love and light. You are a beautiful shining light.

The light has formed you, the light has carried you, through light you witness darkness, through light you know love. It is time to spread your wings and fly so that all of us who remain earth bound can see where you lead us.

I have so deeply loved our circles in Goshen of which you were such an important part. Another part of me is so glad for you in making this bold change and creating a new space for your own expansion. I am grateful to have had you in my circle for these past six years.

I’m going to miss you at the White Mesa gatherings. I love your smile, fantastic sense of humour, and the way you spoke and taught during the white Mesa gatherings.

You are the light that shuts out the dark. You are the essence of love and the hope we all hold on to. Continue being who you are. Your journey is perfect. Just as planned. Beauty, in every aspect of the word. 

Thank you for all the work, play, stories, laughter, and energy that you shared with me and the White Mesa circle over the years. You were the one that always made space and took everyone in!  And thanks especially for your big smile and bright eyes.  I hope to see that smile again soon!

I admire your courage to go off on your new path and honor your knowing that this is the time.  One of the statements I will remember you saying is, “Do it afraid!”

I will miss your hugs and your affectionate welcomes every time I came for the White Mesa weekend.  I send you many blessings and may your new journey be splendid in beauty, more growth and great prosperity. I love you and you will be always in my heart as a sister and teacher. Thank you for all you have given me these past years. I will miss your laughter.   

I will miss your soothing yet steady presence.  You have added the feminine heart to the white Mesa teachings and grounded our work with love, patience ….. In the most sacred container.

I know that you will forge a light path that is very sacred and powerful by creating a space where each person will have their own unique experience of the Divine. I am looking forward to being a part of it.

Thank you for always holding space. I would look up and know how grounded and present you were with each of us. I am grateful I had the chance to be in circle with you — and I know we will be in circle again.

I wish you only love and light on your continued heart journey. Thank you for your amazing hugs, contagious laughter, and your smiles. I will miss hearing your meditations and channeled messages. Yet, I carry your wisdom with me. 

You will be missed. I know you are following your path and where it leads you. You have always led with your heart as our teacher and I am filled with immense gratitude. 

Keep drumming, divine one. The world needs to keep hearing your rhythm.

Poem: At Home with the Winged Ones

Friday, June 14th, 2013

Greeted by a Warbler
Lunch with an Eastern Bluebird
Storytelling with Grackles in the afternoon
Early evening with Turkey Vultures

Home at last with the winged-ones

A Cardinal flies across the field;
Lands on a branch and
Sings its rhythmic piercing song 

Loud cries above my head
As a Blue Jay claims its territory in the tree
A Red-winged Blackbird chases the crows away 

Evening arrives, softly—
As a Red-tailed Hawk
Greets me goodnight

Meditation: Aware, Awake, and Alive

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013

Tune into your body.

Notice anyplace tense and breathe there. 

Like a radio station that we adjust the knob to remove the static —
take a moment to adjust your body to remove any static.

Send your breath there.

Be aware of your body in this moment.

Your body is teaching you right now where it wants attention.

Just notice and breathe. Everything starts with awareness. 

Be mindful of your body.

With breath and clarity, sense the breath between the breaths.

Drop in a little bit more.

Beyond the physical body, breathe into the spiritual body. Notice. 

Tune in now to your heart center.

Breathe in and out of your heart center.

Deep within you, connect to the root center of You.

Notice anything drawing you deeper within.

Be in your heart center.


Be open.

Be alive.

Awaken to YOU.
