Quotes, karma, and the Q’s to ask before dropping the big bucks: The August Roundup

August was all about getting clear on the fear, accounting for karma, and creating the positive feelings you want when it comes to money.

Do you account for karma? Because hard work isn’t all its cracked up to be. We bring an energetic blueprint into this life. It can trump our sweat-pouring diligence, as well as against-all-odds circumstances. It influences our reality.

I’m loving…Spark Seekers, The Good Life Project, and bliss.
Spark seekers, magazine covers you want to lick, and a love letter revolution.

78 inspirational quotes to start your fire. I get a lot of compliments on the inspirational quotes in THE FIRE STARTER SESSIONS. (Thank you!) Here they are, all in one place.

Questions to ask yourself before you drop the big bucks. There’s an emotion attached to every dollar you spend. Get clear on the emotional driver, and you get clear on your relationship to prosperity.

Passion over perfection. Love over politics. The Story of Mrs. Mulvey. Mrs. Mulvey, my English teacher, was on the outside of my teen drama (and there was a lot of drama back then—I left home when I was sixteen), and we rarely spoke out of class. But how she treated me quietly influenced my entire creative career.

The first thing to say to a friend in need. And for the love of God, do not tell them that there’s a gift in the lesson.

3 questions for easier living. Out of what needs to be done in your life—work, household, creativity—what do you do best?

How to deconstruct your fear: an exercise. Getting clear on what you’re scared of can instantly defuse ticking anxiety bombs and release your creative power.

Creating a positive relationship with your money: a Q&A. There are unlimited ways to create the positive feelings you want in every interaction you have with money.

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.

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.

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.
