How to be truly wise? Rock your paradoxes.

Wisdom is paradoxical danielle laporte

True wisdom usually holds and transcends opposing points of view. Wisdom knows that there is always an exception to the rule, that there is a time and place, and that a case-by-case approach is divine protocol.

If you can comfortably hold your paradoxes, you’re going to be just fine.

Because I’m suggesting that you:

  1. Love yourself first and foremost and… Include the world in your loving (and then get off your ass and be more selflessly engaged).
  2. Raise your standards and… Be more flexible and accommodating.
  3. Forgive and… Don’t forget.
  4. Honour spiritual traditions and… Be your own guru.
  5. Be open-hearted and… Have clear, strong boundaries.
  6. Be understanding and… Don’t take any shit.
  7. Have a vision and… Go with the flow.
  8. Trust and… Do the work.
  9. Get real and… Be idealistic.
  10. Be steadfast in your Truth and… Make all kinds of exceptions.
  11. Have strong preferences and… Be easy to please.
  12. Lead with your heart and… Your head.
  13. Own your extraordinariness and… Your ordinariness.

Because it’s up to you and… we’re all in this together.

And hey, we have all the time in the world, but… this is urgent.

This is a peek-a-boo from my new book love, White Hot Truth, Chapter 3: TRUTHFULLY SEEKING. You can read or listen to the entire chapter free by clicking HERE.

Embrace Meditation with Danielle LaPorte

The doors to EMBRACE close today—get in soon

Only a few hours left to join Embrace: The Divine Feminine (the live meditation class), and ease into the weekend feeling more… LUMINOUS.

Fiercely-loving + ALL-embracing. Meet my newest meditation…

When I talk about The Divine Feminine as a principle it’s not (necessarily) about being in a goddess circle, or being ultra orgasmic (tho, that’s great), or even about being in a female body. The Divine Feminine exists in every being, in all life forms. The Feminine is fluid, generative, creative, spacious, receptive… the embrace that perpetually heals and nourishes.

Morality Danielle LaPorte

Morality, deep beauty and Faith: How you coping these days?

I am examining where in my life I can be more impeccable in linking desire to deed. CARE-FULL. I am making space to breathe more deliberately. These times call for deep breathing so you can hitch your passion to mindful action. So breathe.
