[LIGHT WORK] How to be a revolutionary for just love

How to be a revolutionary for just love1

 

Dear Revolutionaries,

Episode #5 of LIGHT WORK is about how we bring our ideals to bear on the world. I’m talking about how we can get justice, without incurring too much karma. About how to fight corruption without the anger burning us out. About the importance of being inclusive—to even the bad guys. I’m talking about how to be a revolutionary… for just love.

Here’s the trip:

  • Where do we even start? (When the world is so messed up, and we’re feeling messed up because of it.)
  • Why we have to resist going numb. Numbness leads to disconnection. Hopelessness is as common as violence. Think about that for a minute.
  • The difference between anger and rage, and why we shouldn’t dismiss or repress the latter.
  • My perspective on evil, and the value of having compassion for EVERYONE, like, on a Soul level but—still working for justice.

Oh, sweet fellow revolutionaries. This is a full episode. Thank you for being here. You are—we are—heartbreakingly beautiful. Go do right by Love. Keep doing the LIGHT WORK.

One Love,

Danielle LaPorte

Look for the Light Everywhere
An excerpt from LIGHT WORK, Episode #5

My friends—in the spirit of compassion and inclusivity: my known and unknown enemies—here’s to a revolution of consciousness, where we are all standing up for our ideals. Of what it means to be human(e)… Of making Love the priority—without apology—and backing Love up with action, with voice, with votes, with policy, with money. Love is always the right thing to do. In the spirit of faith, I offer this to you:

Look for Light with more intensity than ever.

In all the density and confusion that’s swirling on the planet, this is what it means to have Faith—Faith that you’ll keep finding the Light. But you have to keep looking.

Don’t waver in your gratitude for what is good right now and how many miracles happen—everyday. Refuse to go numb.

Use questions to build your strength. You will get angry. Some days you will be devastated. But even on the days when you might fail to be compassionate, please don’t let go of what you know to be true in your spirit bones: that compassion illuminates the darkness.

If you look with your Soul, you will keep finding the Light. Everywhere.

It’s medicine when love is driving you crazy, or you’re crazy in love.

Hopefully Devoted

[LIGHT WORK] Examining our devotion: If we don’t feel free… what’s the point?

I know that countless mystics throughout time agree that the reason for our spiritual endeavoring—our devotion—is liberation, and only liberation. The “work” in our light work creates a freedom from afflictive states: anxiety, selfishness, shallowness, insecurity, always comparing ourselves to other people, restlessness, fear… If the whole point of our devotion is liberation, then here’s the question…

Hopefully Devoted

[LIGHT WORK] Hopefully Devoted

This is the last episode of this podcast series. It’s devoted to one of my favourite topics: Devotion. We’re shining light on our prayers, our beliefs, our teachers… and whether they’re actually getting us closer to what we really want—liberation. We’re talking about the real work of light work.

Sacred Activism

[LIGHT WORK] On Sacred Activism

I’m interested in how we work as individuals and how we come together as a society—to create justice. To be in right action. To balance the scales. To transmute darkness into light. How do we hold people accountable? How do we speak out with fire and clarity about our ideals? How do we call people on their destructive shit without creating harm or incurring karma?

Sweet like honey, and sledgehammer-hard: lessons from my year.

After one more trip around the sun, here are a few of my learnings (some of which came down like honey, others, like a sledgehammer. #reallife ):

Everyone on #TeamD takes these personality tests

One of our best investments of time is in understanding each other: what our strengths and talents are, how we show love + appreciation, and how we respond to stress. We’re working to be even more thoughtful and diligent around these practices in our culture, but we’ve got some great tools in hand.

Beliefs, Movies & Man Crushes1

[LIGHT WORK] An intimate Q&A episode. It’s deep, it’s lite, I hope it’s alllll right.

If God is in the details, then the Soul is in a good Q&A. And that’s the substance of Podcast #4: Beliefs, Movies & Man Crushes. Your questions make it so easy for me to rant and offer some (hopefully) useful how-to’s and tricks of the trade. The “trade” being discernment and devotion. It’s deep, it’s lite, I hope it’s alllll right.

In a nutshell: I’m hot for hot man feminists who work (in their own way) to make the world a better place. Service is a huge turn on for me.

[LIGHT WORK] The service of joy, especially in these times

I’ve talked to rabbis, and priests, and monks, and people who I consider to be high esoteric practitioners. I’ve figured out a few things about joy… and I’ve woven them into this week’s episode of LIGHT WORK.
