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.

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…” :

This is what healing looks like—from cancer to politics, and our bleeding, blazing hearts.

Healing is as ugly as “healed” is gorgeous. If we don’t judge the mess of it, we’re more likely to get to the other side of it sooner—and more deeply healed and stronger than we ever imagined possible. Scars and all. Healed.

How you listen is how you live. (A poem for being of service.)

You may hear this as an order, an invitation, or as the opportunity of lifetimes.

How you listen is how you live.
Can you hear the women crying?
Can you hear the soil gasping for clean air?
And did you hear that? That’s the sound of a good man asking, How can I serve?

How do you serve?

Danielle-Laporte-Gift-Transaction

So, is this a gift, or a transaction? Because…your entire life is not a business deal.

I’ve been thinking a lot about transactional giving these days. I’ll tweet about you if you tweet about me. They owe me a favour. You listen for five minutes to them so they’ll listen when it’s your turn to talk. Even Stevens. Transactional giving can be a beautiful commerce of support, and there’s nothing inherently wrong with that interplay. But if all of our giving is to secure our getting…then, well, it’s gross.

Danielle-Laporte-Love-the-egg-you're in

Love the egg you’re in. (This is not a sermon on patience. But…)

Savour the simplicity of your pre-dreams-come-true time. Love the egg you’re in. Because not too long from now–and right on time, you’ll be spreading your wings and life will never be the same again.

Rock your emptiness

Rock your emptiness

But what if we rocked our emptiness? Felt the perimeter of ourselves. Relished the silence. Made friends with the peace that’s always waiting for us. What if we got off on the discomfort of our emptiness and let it be creative tension?

Whats-Underneath-Wishful-thinking

What’s underneath wishful thinking?

Wishful thinking is tangled up with craving. We want what we want. So we ignore the evidence that we’re very likely not going to get what we want out of a situation. Craving… wishing. Craving… denial. Craving… tolerating. It’s a wishous cycle.

danielle-laporte-manifesto-for-creativity

Don’t worry about being invited back. My Manifesto for Creativity.

Meaningfulness. Reveal myself. Be compassionate. Don’t worry about being invited back. Go there. xo. I jotted this down when I began writing my book. I wanted a manifesto and it had to happen quickly because…I had a book to write.

Life is what happens on the way to the finish line.

If you’re not loving what it feels like between your various life destinations, then get off the ride. Burn the itinerary. Fuck “motivation” and be still long enough to find your inspiration.
