current love list: tenderlogic, green love, Chopin

Time for my as-the-spirit-moves-me, random, non-affiliate commission, pure adoration list o’ what I’m loving lately. Dip in.

Navjit (Nav-geet) Kandola just launched Nav is a soul sister. We’ve been on psychic speed dial for almost twenty years. Navjit is a spiritual technician. A guide. A star. I think her SOUL VIDEO CONSULTATIONS are going to rock the coaching scene. Go here to get some glow. This is so beautifully simple, and sweetly clever — I wished I’d thought of it. “You’ll see one word. You have sixty seconds to write about it. …”

Or…let someone else analyze and poetize for you…

GET A PERSONALIZED INSTA POEM. This is brill. Samantha Reynolds really launched her “poem a day” project: (And this, Love Is Not Fragile, makes my heart melty-achey-happy.) But, THIS INSTA POEM generator is genius. Answer some questions and they’ll craft an on-the-soul-target poem for you. My poem stopped me in my tracks. It’s like The I Ching, slam poetry style.

Chopin Nocturnes. Sublime. Makes me feel grand and speck-like all at once.

UliMana Organic Raw Chocolate Truffles. Kris Carr sent me a crate of these and now they’re hidden in every cupboard, and my favorite thank you and hostess gift. (Best consumed while listening to Chopin’s Nocturnes.) Speaking of the Green Goddess herself…

Kris Carr and her Crazy Sexy Community bundled the best smoothie + juice recipes together. Delicious. Get JUICED.

The current issue of Shambhala Sun Magazine is particularly good. Courtney Martin’s article on Good Failure has us “reclaiming failure as the mark of a dream worth having.” And this piece called, The Wanderer, by Andrea Miller about the famed monk, Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, who “left it all” to presumably become a wandering yogi, will have you see that there are many paths to enlightenment.

This quote from Pablo Neruda:

I want to do with you what spring does with the cherry trees I read everything she writes about writing.

Dr. Sara Gottfried. I read everything she writes about girly parts and hormones.

Chocolat. I re-watched this movie with my 7 year old boy. I remembered how sensual kindness is; how hot Johnny is without eyeliner; how incredible Carrie-Ann Moss’s bone structure is; how sweet community can be.

7 business truths I wish I’d been brave enough to believe, 732 days ago. By Alexandra Franzen. Read it.

Citrine crystals. I’ve recently become obsessed with them. Citrine is a great stone for manifesting and radiating your creativity. Ommmm.

Mason Jennings. Perfect for making soup and magic. Especially on a rainy day.

Do you think being called “Too emotional” is an act of oppression? Maybe you should think about it.

Stop thinking and start feeling — a lot more. And start talking about how you feel — a lot more. And you know what will happen? You will start to be more aware of how you feel, more of the time — the tenderness, the rage, the genius, the sorrow, the Love. You will feel your power, and you will direct it into the world.

How to not give a shit (even though you really do) and be kind about it all.

Love from the inside outward. Some people will take offense to your healthy priorities. Others will take your loving example and love themselves even more.

Perpetually cleansing? That’s about right. The 80/20 rule of living your life and cleaning it up.

Deep living is dirty, sweaty, gorgeous work. We will accumulate things. But your Soul wants to be mobile, unencumbered — in touch with all the parts of your life.

All the things that softly kill me.

The hate. All the hate. It makes me fume and spin. The light. Oh the light! The light that is powerful enough to transmute hate into Love. “T’was blind, but now I see.” That kind of light.


A slight twist on reviewing your year (or life) that could be very, very…illuminating

We’re cozied in the corner booth of the pub with tacos and no one else around. It’s been a doozer of a business week and I have some Very Big Decisions to make. Wait. In case you’re not the story-type, I’ll give you the quick take-away: A short how-to on doing a yearly retrospective.


a sentiment for blazing

close your calendars
of regret
smash clocks and barriers
with your better knowing
throw soft light on


Self Love and why we’re all effed up about it.

Celebrate yourself no matter what — even if they think you’re tacky, terrible, too much of this, too little of that. Make how you move through the world an homage to your beautiful, luminous, powerful, magnificent, righteous, sacred…self.

That same self who may fuck up tomorrow, but will still be made of LOVE. THAT Self. Love.


Thoroughness (a poem for devotion)

I have expressed from my longing and obstacles
the balm of thoroughness,
rare as rose oil,
nothing cures like devotion.
I stroke it on wounds and desires


Easing someone’s suffering…without suffering. Is it possible?

Do I have to feel your pain in order to help ease your pain?

And, if I guard myself against your suffering, am I less useful? If I want to detach from your pain, am I less loving? If I think, “I’m glad I’m not going through that”, am I cold hearted? If I’m grateful for my strength or good fortune in comparison to your so-called weakness or misfortune, does that make me…just secretly horrible?
