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

Incubation periods are not that glamourous.

The hope of what’s to come is sexy, but so much of that in-between, not-quite-yet time is frustrating.  

But let’s consider all of the benefits of being in your egg right now: Peace. Space. Privacy. When you finally hatch (and you will), it will be full force and no turning back. Your next career surge means you’ll have to cut a few holidays short and do your hair everyday. That lover you’re praying to have is going to arrive, sweep you off your feet, and then and take over half of your precious closet space. When you get what you’ve been working toward, there will be new stuff to deal with. And it will be part of your new incredibleness, but right now, in the egg, you have the sweetness of familiarity. So just enjoy it, because that easy pleasure helps soften any doubts you have about the future.

I know you’re probably doing all the right things to make your dreams come true. And I’m the last person on this side of the galaxy to tell you to be patient. I know nothing about it. When God was handing out patience I was already in the car, honking the horn. Let’s incarnate, already! But I do know that according to hens and science and most sages who actually waited in line for some patience, 

You can’t rush your hatching.
 It’s dangerous. The results can be disastrous and take a long time to overcome.

So 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.


 

And for all your friends waiting for the breakthrough to come…help them love their egg-ness. Press forward. xo

The 4 Noble Truths Of LOVE: A live conversation with Danielle LaPorte + Susan Piver

It’s medicine when love is driving you crazy, or you’re crazy in love.

Hopefully Devoted

[LIGHT WORK] Examining our devotion: If we don’t feel free… what’s the point?

I know that countless mystics throughout time agree that the reason for our spiritual endeavoring—our devotion—is liberation, and only liberation. The “work” in our light work creates a freedom from afflictive states: anxiety, selfishness, shallowness, insecurity, always comparing ourselves to other people, restlessness, fear… If the whole point of our devotion is liberation, then here’s the question…

Hopefully Devoted

[LIGHT WORK] Hopefully Devoted

This is the last episode of this podcast series. It’s devoted to one of my favourite topics: Devotion. We’re shining light on our prayers, our beliefs, our teachers… and whether they’re actually getting us closer to what we really want—liberation. We’re talking about the real work of light work.

Sacred Activism

[LIGHT WORK] On Sacred Activism

I’m interested in how we work as individuals and how we come together as a society—to create justice. To be in right action. To balance the scales. To transmute darkness into light. How do we hold people accountable? How do we speak out with fire and clarity about our ideals? How do we call people on their destructive shit without creating harm or incurring karma?

This episode is about our personal activism. I’m talking about how we can get justice, without incurring too much karma. I’m talking about how to be a revolutionary for just love.

Sweet like honey, and sledgehammer-hard: lessons from my year.

After one more trip around the sun, here are a few of my learnings (some of which came down like honey, others, like a sledgehammer. #reallife ):

Everyone on #TeamD takes these personality tests

Everyone on #TeamD takes these personality tests

One of our best investments of time is in understanding each other: what our strengths and talents are, how we show love + appreciation, and how we respond to stress. We’re working to be even more thoughtful and diligent around these practices in our culture, but we’ve got some great tools in hand.

Beliefs, Movies & Man Crushes1

[LIGHT WORK] An intimate Q&A episode. It’s deep, it’s lite, I hope it’s alllll right.

If God is in the details, then the Soul is in a good Q&A. And that’s the substance of Podcast #4: Beliefs, Movies & Man Crushes. Your questions make it so easy for me to rant and offer some (hopefully) useful how-to’s and tricks of the trade. The “trade” being discernment and devotion. It’s deep, it’s lite, I hope it’s alllll right.

In a nutshell: I’m hot for hot man feminists who work (in their own way) to make the world a better place. Service is a huge turn on for me.
