#TellThemNow. The intimacy of gratitude will blow your life wide open. (+ a Father’s Day video that will have you weeping)

Created by Echo Stories

One of my least favourite behaviours of mine is withholding love. I’m hugely proud to say that it rarely happens. (If you’re going to boast about anything, let it be your capacity for loving.) But it still happens. It’s a reservedness that creeps over my usually boundless heart. I tell myself that staying quiet will give me shelter (from what?*), but it isn’t shelter at all. It’s a moment back in prison. Because in my personal heaven-on-earth, my voice, my arms, my paragraphs, my body, my eyes match the size of my heart. My love scales.

*Intimacy changes everything. You can’t take the words back. You will be expanded and then you might default to shrinking back — and the shrink back is painful.
You might burn the other person with the light of your love. You might spur them to change and they might resent it.
You may be rejected.
More likely…
You may feel … home sweet home.
Small raptures that make your life sway.
The connection you crave filled up to the point of overflowing.
LOVE, lived.

#TellThemNow

And you KNOW why. You know you’re going to remember that time you wrote the letter AND you sent it. When you held on longer at the door and buried your faces into each other’s necks and you cried your goodbye. And remember the time you drove back to say Thank you? That was amazing. And when you changed your departing flight — because what’s more important than more time together?

Unmuffle. Run back. Say it.

We’re always going to have a reason to not #TellThemNow . Whether it’s your dad, your mom, your sister, brother. Or your ex, new, or longtime Lover. Because there are scars and cavernous imperfections, and buttons that will always be pushed. So many buttons. But there’s always the Love. (If you didn’t love them, the wounding wouldn’t have happened in the first place.)

There’s always the Love. So much Love. The Love. Love. #TellThemNow

The Principles of Active Waiting vs. feeling-like-a-loser, losing-your-mind kind of waiting…

I was at a friend’s cluttered apartment and he was saying how much he wanted to have a live-in girlfriend. And I was like, “Dude, where would she put her stuff?” He got his tidy on to make space for the live-in love he was waiting to find. That’s active waiting — happily preparing for what you trust is on its way to you.

this video has been getting a LOT of attention

What are you willing to do for your creative dream? Are you willing to transform? To give it up; be the fool; re-write your story; not recognize yourself; believe differently; be something, someone, you have not yet known? It does take a “miracle mindset”. And…

Some marketing know-how. Cosmic meets pragmatism.

You were born for this. See what I mean…

We believe in something bigger than ourselves. We understand that the cultural obsession with productivity is killing our joy & harming the planet. We KNOW the world needs leaders who uphold a triple bottom line—economic, social, environmental. So. This message is for you. (Especially if you’re a Creative, a teacher, a leader, an entrepreneur—or want to be.)

Naked Prayer

Naked prayer.

I’ve always prayed. To heal. To have. I pray for people I love and people I have a hard time liking. I’ve sat in prayer circles petitioning rain and for someone’s cancer to dissolve. I know dozens of prayers from various faiths. I’ve published prayers. Danced them. Sang them. Sweat them. In reverence, in shock, in exquisite thanks.

I pray differently now.
