I’m loving…Spark Seekers, The Good Life Project, and bliss.

Spark Seekers

The latest album from Matisyahu, Spark Seekers is high vibration groove-gasmic.

Matis recently took a turn from his Hasidic devotion and freed himself of his beard and forelocks, and black suit. He’s on the other side of his crossroads. I’m at the foot of some new choices for myself and this whole album is resonating in my bones.

Unleash it. Here’s the first release:

Magazine-files unite!

I just discovered CoverJunkie.com through Arem (the smokin’ hot Creative Director of The New York Times Magazine). “Coverjunkie is an addiction to magazine covers you wanna lick. A celebration of creative covers & their ace designers.” Lick ‘em here:

More Love Letters

The World Needs More Love Letters is a community of “love letter writers” who write and leave letters anywhere and everywhere… books, coffee shops, coat pockets, trains — in hopes that the right people will pick them up. Letter writers document the writing and dropping through photographs, blog posts, and social media. It’s started a movement. Love it HERE.

Hear the story from founder Hannah Brencher’s Talent Search TED talk HERE.

Swimming with wild dolphins.

Wow.

I heart dolphins. Like I never thought I would. This year I wrangled a group of old and new friends for a Dolphin experience in Kona, Hawaii, led by my favourite physicist-philosopher, Peter Russell.

We swam with pods of hundreds of wild spinner dolphins. It was the kind of magic that affects you on a cellular level. We meditated, cooked together, experienced awe together. If you want to plan your own group trip, Peter is offering private, very affordable excursions. Swim!

The Good Life Project

I’ll always love cruising for great TED Talks, but my new smart inspiration fix is Jonathan Field’s Good Life Project interviews — I’ve watched every one. He’s getting some fascinating people together, and he’s an excellent interviewer:

Katherine Preston On The Upside Stuttering, Charles Duhigg On The Power of Habit, Dan Ariely On Why We Lie And How We Decide, Coco and Breezy Light Up the Fashion World, Bart Potenza On Building the Vegan Candle Cafe …

Bliss. In a bite.

These chocolate macaroons from Vancouver’s Organic Lives are better for you than most vitamins. They are the “equivalent amount of antioxidants as two cups of blueberries.” Gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, vegan. Order online HERE.

Poetry from Heidi Rose Robbins

“What bounty is your whole body yearning to receive? Choose it.”

This poem by soulful astrologer, Heidi Rose Robbins, is breathtaking. It’s pure nourishment at the beginning of any project… every week. I close my eyes and just listen. “Water and listen…” :

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?

You girlfriend, YOU. The things women friends do.

I can be my most very very softest self with you. There isn’t a word in the English language that can convey my gratitude for that.

You have never once made me feel wrong, or wicked, or insane, or not hot — even when I felt all of those things. You always make me feel righteous, and loving, and strong, and totally hot.
