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…” :

Comparison is a killer. Cut it out.

Bless the people you feel envious of. The rich, skinny, in-love, confident, powerful people. Quicker than you can say “I wish I had that…,” say to yourself, or even better, to them, “Way to go…you look great…I admire you.” With envy out of the way, you’ll have more space for your own greatness to step forward.

You are worthy of your desires

To say no.

To say yes.

To have your deepest needs met.

To be seen.

To be loved for what is seen.

Pressed against a star (a poem for longing to be home.)

You are worth waiting for,

And I will open the door for you like our lives depend on it.

Feminism is consciousness. Lessons for my imaginary daughter & women — including Kim Kardashian.

All communication begins with intention. A loving word, or flipping someone the bird. A treatise on feminism, or an ageist tweet out to your peers.

Use your wings

You’re cosmic. You are winged with light. And that means you have the power to get where you want to go, to see what’s really going on in a situation, to make excellent decisions.

Recovering from self-help exhaustion? Join the club.

My friend Jess Ortner and I had a great conversation about the downer of always trying to be up. Perfect for her podcast called Adventures in Happiness. This is one of my favourite, truly useful conversations for being on the so-called “Path”.

Self help + helpful cynicism. A very real conversation about modern spirituality between girlfriends.

Emelia and I go about things from different ends and get close to the same bright center — real, no bullshit compassion. Put on the kettle and listen in.

Just don’t expect crazy people to be sane (cause that’s crazy).

There’s so much sanity to just flowing with someone’s predictability— their norm, their nature. Accept it. Forgive it. Just tolerate it; or peace out if you don’t want it in your life. But don’t waste too much time trying to change it.
