I know the colour of your eyes (A poem for loving your life while you’re aware of eternity.)

I know this lifetime is only a wooden structure
— struts and beams of longing and achieving.
I know beyond samsara and economics
there are colours I have never seen
that would send me into euphoria.

And over there, time is something we laugh at.
Like when my son said,
Remember when I thought if I
swallowed watermelon seeds they’d grow in my stomach?
And we laugh.

Ya, time, it never existed to begin with.

I know I’m living on multiple plains,
as a violet light ray, as a mechanic in Tibet,
and a stellar amoeba cleaning doubt from the atmosphere.
I am the Supreme God generating the original and eternal space.

I know that before there was The Word there was (and always will be) Space.
It is the canvas of reality and Light is the ink of our story.

I understand how Venus weaves Love into a generous geometry.
I worship her, so I know.

I get it.

But I’m holding on to here —
to music, and linen, and the white berries that grow by the lake.
I love how gravity holds me when I dance.
And when I decide to burn down this house and all the agreements in it,
I’m going to take rhythm, and the fruit seeds,
and the colour of your eyes with me everywhere I go.

Embrace Meditation with Danielle LaPorte

The doors to EMBRACE close today—get in soon

Only a few hours left to join Embrace: The Divine Feminine (the live meditation class), and ease into the weekend feeling more… LUMINOUS.

Fiercely-loving + ALL-embracing. Meet my newest meditation…

When I talk about The Divine Feminine as a principle it’s not (necessarily) about being in a goddess circle, or being ultra orgasmic (tho, that’s great), or even about being in a female body. The Divine Feminine exists in every being, in all life forms. The Feminine is fluid, generative, creative, spacious, receptive… the embrace that perpetually heals and nourishes.

Morality Danielle LaPorte

Morality, deep beauty and Faith: How you coping these days?

I am examining where in my life I can be more impeccable in linking desire to deed. CARE-FULL. I am making space to breathe more deliberately. These times call for deep breathing so you can hitch your passion to mindful action. So breathe.
