Desire brewing. My big announcement with Hiro Boga.

The details behind the launch of my brand new program “Desire,” finding flow in the creative process and a promise made that you will want to hear. Find it all in conversation with Hiro Boga– writer, teacher and creator of Become Your Own Business Adviser.

A highlight:

HB: Since you are working on this program on desire, would you tell me something about how that began? What calls to you, how do you respond to that call, how do you choose this project as opposed to all the other things that might be calling to you?

DL: Well, “Desire,” in particular, has been sitting there for about five years and I was actually writing this book before I was writing THE FIRE STARTER SESSIONS. What I’m noticing now, far enough into my creative career, is that it almost feels like there’s a queue. There’s a line-up of projects. They have a line-up of babies waiting to come in.

I have learned to pay attention to the one who’s talking the most and the loudest.

Then another pattern of mine… I don’t think it works this way for everybody but once I’m a YES, I’m an immediate YES. Like when I got the idea for Fire Starter I walked downstairs into the kitchen and said to my husband, I’m launching something called the Fire Starter Sessions. It’s going to be an online program. I’m going to do it in three months. I’m done. And then I emailed my assistant at that time saying, so this is what we’re doing. This is all within an hour. The next morning, I announced it on all my social media and my website. I picked the Wednesday. There’s no turning back after that.

HB:
So you make a really public commitment to that.

DL:
Always. I’m about to– I mean today, actually. Here we go. Another surprise, something sacred with Hiro.

This is my most official, official announcement that we will be launching the “Desire” program. The current subtitle of the program is the Map to What You Truly Want and it will launch either late November or the first week in December of 2012. It will be unlike anything out there. It’s going to be gorgeous.

HB: Wow.

DL:
I just decided this yesterday. It’s been brewing.

HB: So for you, setting that intention in a really public way actually activates all the skills and resources and both internal energy and external energy to make it happen. Is that right?

DL: Yes, two things happen. One, I can’t wait to give it. I would say that to everybody. You’ve got to feel like this kind of urgency. It has got to have that- you know that feeling where you find just the right gift for somebody. It’s like that Christmas or Hanukkah or whatever you’re feeling and you can’t wait for them to open it. Oh my god, I can’t wait. Open it! I know we haven’t had dinner yet but open your gift!

I want to feel that way with every project. I really want to tell everybody. And magic things happen when you put a stake in the material world. This is my land and this is the date and watch what happens.

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.

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?
