“Discipline, as understood by a warrior, is creative, open, and produces freedom. It is the ability to face the unknown, transforming the feeling of knowing into reverent astonishment; of considering things that exceed the scope of our habits, and daring to face the only war that is worthwhile: The battle for awareness.” ~Carlos Castaneda

“Turning to a guru or a spiritual teacher to tell us why we are here is a big mistake, and often, an expensive one. Others can provide us with tools that help us to clear the blockages to clarity, but they cannot tell us which path to walk. That’s because our sacred purpose is privately held- it is encoded within us, embodied and embedded, a karmic blueprint that can only be read by the one who carries it. That’s why not a single soul on earth can tell us why we are here. They can’t decipher a language that is unique to another soul, no matter what claims they make. It’s one of the most beautiful things about this human trip- the divine blessed each of us with our own secret language, a unique karmic code that will never be replicated again. We are the book of our life. Now all we have to do is figure out how to interpret it. One page at a time…” ~Jeff Brown

I dream of a family of stars. When one of us shines brightly, it inspires the rest of us to turn up our shine. There are no teachers in the STARFAMILY, only learner-sharers. While some of us are meant to lead, others clear the path and do the math, but we are all STARS, so comparison ceases to exist. RECIPROCITY is the only law, held up by the authority of love. We know that everything is VIBRATION, so we are radically responsible with what tunes we tell. Everyone in the starfamily is needed, even the CHAOS stirrers, who help us know dissonance which is the precursor to CHANGE. Every obstacle we surpass brings us closer to the TRUTH of our indispensability, which is also fleeting. We are disappearing COMETS, with but a blink of a life to make our streaks on the sky in an unselfconscious praising of the present, aching to return to the ONE LOVE which made us. ~ by Dreamwork with Toko-pa

Check out this inspiring video from the amazing young activist Ta’Kaiya Blaney. World Water Day is this coming Saturday, March 22 and there will be a globally synchronized ceremony to honor water. You are invited to participate wherever you are!

Issues like Fukushima, drought in California and elsewhere, flooding, toxic spills like West Virginia and Deep Horizon catastrophe in the gulf, the assault of fracking chemicals in aquifers, polar ice melt and others are more than enough to demand a swift and decisive response. If politicians are unable to lead, the people will. When water is threatened, all of life is threatened.

“Please dedicate Saturday March 22 to Love Water and Join Us at 3:00 pm in your Local Time Zone as we create a wave of intention moving across the planet. The Global Synchronized Moment for the World’s Waters will be at 3:00 pm PST (wherever you are in the world).

This launches a full year of action to deepen our relationship with water and get clean water to every human on the planet. Sign up to our email list to stay updated on movements you can plug into.

Together, we are a Global Synchronized Force of Nature.
Together, the World’s Waters will become Holy again.
Together, Love prevails on this Blue Planet.”

“You’re walking the labyrinth of life. Yes, you’re meant to move forward, but almost never in a straight line. Yes, there’s an element of achievement, of beginning and ending, but those are minor compared to the element of being here now. In the moments you stop trying to conquer the labyrinth of life and simply inhabit it, you’ll realize it was designed to hold you safe as you explore what feels dangerous. You’ll see that you’re exactly where you’re meant to be, meandering along a crooked path that is meant to lead you not onward, but inward.” ~Martha Beck
