Not me. My time is focused on awakening practices. That’s what I do with my time. I’m reading and watching and sitting and moving toward awakening-oriented everything. How lucky am I? I feel pretty lucky. And all thanks to the incredibly safe and loving container Tucker created for me. Huge. And he supports this stuff. And he’s patient and kind and crazy talented. So, yes, waking up more to life with him in It? Sign me up.
I always thought, being spiritually-oriented, I would find myself with a guru. But one never came. And, I mean everything is our guru, but I thought a really cool old person being around whom lifted the knowing. I felt a little cheated.
Right now, I feel like I’ve got a dozen of them. All internet and impersonal, but expansive and beautiful. Those folks are:
Paul Selig and the I AM WORD books
Claire Zammit and Feminine Power
Craig Hamilton and Direct Awakening
Barbara Marx Hubbard and Awakening the New Species
OK, so 4 feels like a dozen. Or 5.
Thomas Hübl and Awakening in the Collective Space
This is what I love. This is who I am and want to align to and integrate humanity’s shift to love. Full-time.
It’s so much fun.
Granted, I don’t think of fun like your average bear. Parties, concerts, bars… these can be fun but are often work for me. I like to sit around and talk about consciousness. Always have. Sat in a lot of kitchens talking in high school. Those were my good times.
Other great programs have inspired me and set the rails for this direction, not the least of which is
Eric Klein and Wisdom Heart
Eric’s got some seriously beautiful programs. Seriously beautiful.
I know there are more. I know I’ve filled a page in my journal. Holy Shit.
Gene Golden and Tai Chi.
He is a Holy Shit kind of living master. Live and in Person. We feel incredibly lucky – huge boon – to be studying under him. Like, crazy-so. I need to practice so. much. more. Good thing I’m in this ‘slowing down’ parade. Other notable practices/people I’m lucky enough to be basking in:
Tracey Stewart and Bodytalk
So, I’m going to “Becoming Who I Truly Am”and “Living in Harmony with Earth and her Evolution” school and these are my teachers and this is my process. I want to be the best version of myself. And I trust the Divine Mother/Life Itself is the source of that version, not my mental idea of myself. I want to contribute to a world with reverence for all life, equality and curiosity, equitable, sustainable living, teaching kids the best of ourselves (how to use their bodies, and at the very least, not undermine the natural strength and flow of the body with sitting for hours and heavy bookbags, but I digress).
I don’t know if writing about this stuff/talking about this stuff could ever be helpful to anyone. I don’t know. That’s not my business. My business is the expressing of these wonderful ideas I’m learning about and experiencing and developing. Ideas that talk about the most loving expression as individuals and as a species. How to go deep, not be afraid of discomfort but be ever-evolving. Yeah. That’s my defacto job of the last many years. But, I’m feeling traction. I’m feeling closer to who I truly am than I ever have. This was a far potentiality when I first signed up for “what’s calling you” with Wisdom Heart five years ago. And even then I’d been working on this stuff for a decade. So, yeah. It’s my job and I’m getting pretty good at it.
Do what makes your heart sing because that is her song. her play. her lila.
