… French press. American woman. White. Privileged. Peaceful. Studio. Kiln. Sewing. Working today. NOT thinking about politics for awhile. Thinking about peace. Nature. Breeze. Ironing the towels I made. The handkerchiefs also. Gift shop at the Benedictine Monastery wants my wares. Putting things together. When you clear space, open to God, doors open. God is the original Divine Creator. God makes great coffee.
Curiosity is key! Elizabeth Gilbert, you’re feeding artists’ souls. Thank you for the permission slips. GRATITUDE
“as architect of choosing…
choose. to. live.
awakened. entirely. wholly.
this is not a hoped-for possible self.
[reminder: this is an immutable Law of your being]
needing not to learn the skill of being whole,
the antidote is to unlearn the habit of living incompletely
here’s the practice:
‘know thyself‘—its about spirit
righteousness is underrated
elevate connection with the changeless essence
seek similitude with the will of Source and will of self
‘choose thyself’—its about substance
sacred. sagacious. spacious.
in thought, word and deed—
intend to: honor virtue. innovate enthusiastically. master integrity.
‘become who you are’—its about style
a human, being an entrepreneur of life experiences
a human, being a purveyor of preferences
being-well with the known experience of soul, in service
your relationship with insecurities, contradictions, & failures?
obstacles or…invitations to grow?
[mindset forms manifestation]
emotions are messengers are gifts
data for discernment: dare to deconstruct them your fears
a belief renovation: fear.less.
& aspire towards ascendance, anyway
support your shine
lean into the Light
as architect of choosing, I choose…
to disrupt the energy of the status quo,
to eclipse the realms of ordinary,
& to live–a life-well lived.
w/ spirit, substance & style.”
