Alleluia, What A F*cking Year (a holiday or anytime prayer)

Grace before meals is a beautiful thing. And… I thought some of us might like to shake it up at our gatherings this year.

I’ve written two prayers for special occasions (I’ll send out the second one soon.) This blessing is not suitable for all ages or dispositions. But if you want to keep it real and aim high, I dare you to pull this out when you gather ’round. Because… what a fucking year.

Bless our togetherness, our causes, our callings.

Bless this mess and all its divine perfection,
Danielle

.  .  .  .  .

For the love of God,
what.a.f*cking.year.
The truth crusading! The justice making!
The fires, the floods, the impact.
And the undeniable RISING of… us.
For the pain we turned into power,
the bullshit we composted into progress,
for the grace we found in the grit…
give us an ALLELUIA!

ALLELUIA!

 

For being idealistic, bravely broken hearted, and keeping it Real.
For the times we chose to expand instead of contract;
and for that one time we knew better but we did it anyway—
and we managed to forgive ourselves and clean up the mess…

give us an ALLELUIA!

ALLELUIA!

 

Sweet Creator, in your reflection we see that
we are so very beautiful and so profoundly good.
We’re amazing.
We’re kind of crazy, not always clear, and a bit desperate some days,
but we keep showing up, hearts on sleeves and hopes in hand.

give us an ALLELUIA!

ALLELUIA!

 

For the nourishment we give,
and the nourishment we receive
we give thanks!

Bless our togetherness, our causes, our callings.
Bless this mess and all its divine perfection.
For hope, for the deep joy,
for everything and absolutely all of it…

give us an ALLELUIA!

ALLELUIA!

The Principles of Active Waiting vs. feeling-like-a-loser, losing-your-mind kind of waiting…

I was at a friend’s cluttered apartment and he was saying how much he wanted to have a live-in girlfriend. And I was like, “Dude, where would she put her stuff?” He got his tidy on to make space for the live-in love he was waiting to find. That’s active waiting — happily preparing for what you trust is on its way to you.

this video has been getting a LOT of attention

What are you willing to do for your creative dream? Are you willing to transform? To give it up; be the fool; re-write your story; not recognize yourself; believe differently; be something, someone, you have not yet known? It does take a “miracle mindset”. And…

Some marketing know-how. Cosmic meets pragmatism.

You were born for this. See what I mean…

We believe in something bigger than ourselves. We understand that the cultural obsession with productivity is killing our joy & harming the planet. We KNOW the world needs leaders who uphold a triple bottom line—economic, social, environmental. So. This message is for you. (Especially if you’re a Creative, a teacher, a leader, an entrepreneur—or want to be.)

Naked Prayer

Naked prayer.

I’ve always prayed. To heal. To have. I pray for people I love and people I have a hard time liking. I’ve sat in prayer circles petitioning rain and for someone’s cancer to dissolve. I know dozens of prayers from various faiths. I’ve published prayers. Danced them. Sang them. Sweat them. In reverence, in shock, in exquisite thanks.

I pray differently now.
