Arousing Our Hearts to Life

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

I have been reading a lot of David Whyte’s poetry as I prepare for my upcoming retreat in Hawaii, The Wild Cosmic Heart. I have been reading about what arouses, awakens, opens, shifts, transforms, and lifts the heart. What would it take to listen to our wild, cosmic heart? As Whyte wrote, “Sometimes everything has to be inscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you.”

In his book, Crossing the Unknown Sea, there is a poem that speaks to becoming more visible, to risking everything to becoming alive.

There is a lovely root to the word humiliation – from the latin word humus, meaning soil or ground. When we are humiliated, we are in effect returning to the ground of our being.

Shedding the carapace we have been building so assiduously on the surface, we must by definition give up exactly what we thought was necessary to protect us from further harm. The outlaw is the radical, the one close to the roots of existence. The one who refuses to forget their humanity and in remembering, helps everyone else remember too.

To die inside, is to rob our outside life of any sense of arrival from that interior. Our work is to make ourselves visible in the world. This is the soul’s individual journey, and the soul would much rather fail at its own life than succeed at someone else’s.

 If you want to explore your untamed heart and risk becoming more alive, then join me in Hawaii November 4-10, 2012 where we will explore the vast sea of our hearts.

Another Growing Edge and Sacred Journey to Peru

Thursday, May 24th, 2012

On May 24 I fly to Peru to take part in a sacred journey. I will travel to the sacred sites of Cuzco, the Sacred Valley, Lake Titicaca, and the Crystal City of Machu Picchu. The journey is an opportunity to deepen my practices as a teacher and student of the Andean Master Path of the Inkan Cosmology. I have wanted to go for years.

My growing edge is calling me to South America. And my mind is turning up the voice of doubt. I hear my doubt voice as a constant question: “Are you sure you want to travel for 11 days on a trip that you don’t know anyone and in a country you don’t speak the native language?” Then, there is the travel within Peru itself. I will be traveling by plane, bus, and train with at least 15 strangers and staying in at least five hotels.

Maybe our growing edges are the places that call us to do more and be more. Maybe our growing edge is ready for us to reach out our arms and stretch father than we have before. Maybe our growing edge is beyond our limited mind (thinking) and calls us to listen to our unlimited heart (being).

Maybe our growing edge wakes us up to who we really are in the world. My growing edge is inviting me to be adventurous, curious, and courageous. Machu Picchu here I come!

What is your growing edge saying to you?

Just Like the Flowers, You Too Are Ready to Bloom!

Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

I have been noticing the amazing flowers and trees bursting all over the East Coast. As I began to look more at the flowers, I noticed varieties I have never seen before (or if I have, I had ignored their beauty). Looking deep into the colors, I wondered when the seeds were planted. I became curious about the depth of the roots. I noticed so many forms of life fully grown and came to realize that this is the ultimate trust in nature that exists. And just when you think you know when Spring is going to arrive, magnolias trees blossom in mid-March!

How am I like the flowers? Where do/did I plant seeds in the hope and trust that they will fully blossom? How far down are my roots and which ones will I allow to become unearthed in new and amazing ways?

Just like the flowers, I am ready to bloom. What is bursting through the earth in your world? Just like the flowers, you too are ready to bloom.

What If the Hokey Pokey Is Really What It’s All About

Thursday, March 8th, 2012

What if the whole world played the hokey pokey? Imagine the whole world putting its right foot in, its right foot out, its right foot in and shaking all about. We do the hokey pokey and turn ourselves around. That’s what it’s all about.

What if we played fun games, laughed at ourselves, and connected with one another in unique and outrageous ways? Maybe the hokey pokey is really what life is all about.

Time to shake it all about – Go play! Mary Anne

Experience the exquisite and ecstatic energy of your heart that connects you to your authentic self.

Failure That Matters

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

The author and entrepreneur Jonathan Fields recently posted a blog, Why Failure Must Be on the Table, which describes the experiences of failures as gateways to opportunities. He writes, “Entrepreneurship–or any process that seeks to evolve the status quo–requires you to regularly test commonly held limits and beliefs. The natural outcome of this is that sometimes you’re right, other times you’re wrong. Either way, you never know until you get out of your head and take action in the world.

The potential not just for failure, but failure that matters, failure you feel, must be on the table. If it’s not, then what you’re setting out to do is either so safe or so devoid of the potential for impact that success might allow you to check a box on a piece of paper, but beyond that, nobody’ll care. Including you.”

We must know that what we are embarking on has the capacity to fail and yet give us as entrepreneur’s incredible lessons to grow and stretch. It’s the learning process and taking the leap that distinguishes the success stories to the stories that never get told. At times, it may feel like ‘a leap of faith’ but it brings us closer to the edges of our dreams. We push ourselves and do it afraid, because not doing it is more painful – and we fail ourselves.

Fields adds in his blog, “So, yes, living, acting and deciding to move forward in the face of potential failure isn’t easy. Especially when it requires you to go all in. And especially later in your lifecycle when you’ve got more on the line. To risk success in art, in business, in love, in life is, indeed, a bit terrifying.

But really, what’s the alternative?”

What is the alternative? Take the risk – and be willing to leap into failure that matters.

Morning Sun Salutation

Tuesday, February 21st, 2012

Each day the light is expanding more and more. As the light greets me each morning and evening, I take notice of the colors in the sky. As I sit on my early morning express bus, I look out the window to watch the sun illuminate before my eyes – and it never disappoints.

Here is this morning’s sun salutation:

Labor of Love

Monday, September 5th, 2011

As many of us enjoy a day off to celebrate “Labor Day”, may we honor the history of this holiday. The first Labor Day in the United States was observed on September 5, 1882, by the Central Labor Union of New York. It became a federal holiday in 1894, when, following the deaths of a number of workers during the Pullman Strike, President Grover Cleveland wanted to reconcile with the labor movement. Fearing more conflict, he put through legislation making Labor Day a national holiday. It was rushed through Congress, where it was voted unanimously and signed into law a mere six days after the end of the strike.

As we remember all those that gave their life for workers rights, let us dedicate this day as a “Labor of Love.” What is one Labor of Love you are willing to give yourself, another, and the world today?

How will you share in the Labor Love?

Atlantic City — Haiku

Monday, August 8th, 2011

Atlantic City
Boardwalks full of slot machines
With visions of gold

Beach stores and much more
Carts pushing people through crowds
Fried foods fill the air

Atlantic seashore
High tide ocean waves crashing
People look for shade

Local bands play on
Nightlife of casino bets
Atlantic City

{I wrote this while coming home from Atlantic City. I had fun writing Haiku poems while taking some time off to read and write and play. Give it a try: 5 syllables, 7 syllables, and 5 syllables. Go!}
