On Your Humanity, The World You Desire, And The Best Kind Of Work
Plus, your soul’s task here on Earth.
I Want to Know How Human You Are
I don’t care how spiritual you are. How long you can melt in the sweat lodge and meet your ancestors. How many peyote journeys that have blown your mind, or how well you can hold Crow pose…
Ultimately, I want to know how human you are…
Can you sit at the feet of the dying, despite the discomfort that arises? Can you be with your grief, or mine, without trying to advise, change, or maintain it? Can you hold loving space for your beloved in the depths of your own healing without trying to be big?
Can you come down from the high and attend to the laundry? Clean the toilets? Create magic in the mundane?
I want to know that you can show up and do the hard and holy things on this gorgeously messy earth. I want to see that you can be sincere, grounded, and compassionate as equally as you are empowered, fiery, and magnetic.
At the end of the day, I don’t care how brave you are. How productive, how popular, how enlightened you are.
…I want to know that you were kind. That you were real. I want to know that you can step down from the pedestal from time to time to kiss the earth and let your hair get dirty and your feet get muddy and join the dance with us all.
The World You Desire Can Be Won
Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it’s yours.
