Inspiration hunters, Circle of Fire launch, and blaming your parents (don’t do it anymore): The July Roundup

In July we wiped out threats to creativity, faced the fear driven questions and decided to stop blaming our parents.

The biggest threat to your creativity…is the fear that it’s already been done, said, created. 
(So why bother?)…

Do you need to suffer to grow? My Great Work Interview with Michael Bungay Stanier Creativity is all about “this worked” and “this didn’t.” You are constantly choosing. And really, if I am on a pulpit for anything, it is this: make more choices…

Are you hanging by a thread? People have been through what you’re going through right now. Thousands of them. Really and truly. Your picture of heartbreak, your strain of pain is part of the human fabric, and that tapestry is holding you like an Eskimo blanket…

The fear-driven questions of human interaction… Is this moving me forward? 
Do I feel more like myself? 
Does this feel expansive or contracting? 
How can I be generous here?…

Want proof that you can’t please everyone? Here’s some… Criticism and counter opinions are part of dynamic expression and creativity. If you’re not generating some resistance, you’re probably not fully stepping out…

Calling All Inspiration Hunters. When you consciously look for inspiration your senses will lean forward to do the work for you. And by “consciously look for,” I mean that we approach being alive as a creative opportunity…

Eventually, you have to stop blaming your parents. You don’t need to chop down your family tree — tho’ sometimes liberation needs to be that sweeping, and you must claim your soul over blood to come fully into your life.

The Sonic Fire Playlist: Music for making stuff. The following music was listened to obsessively while creating THE FIRE STARTER SESSIONS.

What do you suck at? Mostly, when you approve of your weaknesses, you give yourself permission to pursue your genius.

What to ask your mentor. If you want to get to what your advisor is really thinking — behind being polite, trusting, and politically correct, just ask them this, a tad emphatically…

Help a girl stay in school — and change the world In Malawi, empowerment is as simple as THIS: provide girls with menstrual supplies so they can attend class 5 days a week. It’s THAT easy to foster major social change. $10 bucks will keep a girl in school…

Listen. It’s time. This is it. 2017. New. Year. Now. I for one am going deeper and higher. I’m reaching inward for my strength, facing my Soul, and I’m going to pour my devotion to the Light all over every word I speak, and every human I encounter and adore and hold, and every cause I’m working for.

How to wish someone well — in a way that will blow your life wide open.

We’ve all been hurt. Screwed over. Taken for granted. Unseen. And once we untangle our hearts and egos from those painful interactions, sometimes we can still manage to send someone positive vibes.Harm done, but okay. Everyone did their best. Onward. I wish them well. And even though you’d never commune or collaborate with that person ever again, you really mean it…

The “royal practice” of overcoming distraction.

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?
