Say this prayer, until all beings are free.

Active Hearts,

These times are calling us to serve in every way that we possibly can. As feelers and healers, the collective pain is what spurs us to generate more consciousness. And, we’ve got to keep the pain moving through us to keep from getting stuck, so that our faith and resolve are stronger than our grief.

One of my favourite prayers for these times is the Shantideva Prayer. It’s a sublime devotional to being of service and protecting all beings…

May I become at all times, both now and forever,
A protector for those without protection,
A guide for those who have lost their way,
A ship for those with oceans to cross,
A sanctuary for those in danger,
A lamp for those in the dark,
And a servant to all those in need.

I adore this prayer. I think it sums up relentless compassion—it covers all the bases of service and protection.

So, print out this mini poster (it’s free). Place it at your desk, on your nightstand, or fold it into your planner. And then… use it. Read it in the morning, say it out loud with your hands on your heart.

And if joining other awake hearts in meditation for change appeals, then join us in Earth Adoration from July 26-28. You can learn more about the live meditation class HERE.

We can face collective pain with unwavering trust and gratitude for being alive. Prayer and meditation… they’re how we stay lit up to keep going. And we need to keep going.

With unwavering Faith,

Holidaze, holy days, and lightening it all up.

Ah, the holidays. Togetherness, twinkly lights, and… mass overconsumption, obligation, and so many opportunities for distraction. Most of us approach distraction as a time management issue—how we wrangle our to-do lists and goals.

Burn your journals. Maybe. Danielle LaPorte

Burn your journals. Maybe. Either way, here’s some inspiration on letting go.

I burned about 20 years of journals. Pages and pages of gut-red poetry and angst; cosmic gorgeousness and tender prayers; lists of wants, boyfriends (a loose term), and favourite perfumes. With every page I fed into the fireplace, I smiled. Thank you. Goodbye. Hellohhh here & now…

Danielle LaPorte How our business gives back

How our business gives back

When I started my own business, I made a decision to be public about our charitable giving. It was a practice I learned from Anita Roddick and the Canadian-based leaders (all women) of The Body Shop. The Body Shop was my first job-job and it baked the concept of a triple bottom line into my happily bleeding heart. The idea of sharing this is to inspire giving through business. I think we’re all gifters at heart. The flow of allowing and aiding is our natural way of being.

Been burned? Betrayal, denial, and the bloody beauty of it all.

Been burned? Betrayal, denial, and the bloody beauty of it all.

I’ve been betrayed — severely. Thank God. Betrayal is such a defining experience — it lays your heart bare, and that’s a bloody, good thing. Bloody good.

Being betrayed by another person is often (not always,) a reflection of how you were betraying yourself. It’s a lie looking back at you.
