"There is a type of fire that makes you wake up- it's called pain. Feeling good is rarely the thing that makes us grow. It's heartache, heartbreak and difficulty that make us grow. So pain is a kind of fire, cooking us. Nature is more willing to keep burning you until you get the message to wake up, to not wait forever to acknowledge that life is sacred, that the Source of life is sacred and that you yourself are part of the sacred. This is what we are re-learning. Are you learning or still insisting on being burned?"
Happy Tuesday beautiful hearts! Just loving the vibes of this song! Earth has no sorrow that heaven can't cure! I hope that this song speaks to you and offers you warmth in the seasons of your life! Isn't music amazing? It's vibrations trickle into our lives and offer us such a beautiful space to surrender!
Make your day amazing...and why not add a little music in the background?!

"At some point along the way, we may become aware of a call to set aside the practices, teachings, and techniques, for just a moment, and rest. Something else is emerging, a longing to fully participate in the miracle of life that is already here.
A longing to stop doing, to stop trying to become a better person, to understand, accept, transform or heal; to stop trying to be at peace, and open to the completeness of this moment as it is.
It is a bit groundless here and can feel disorienting as we are so used to doing, interpreting, getting somewhere, and resolving something. Attending to our projects. Fixing ourselves. Remedying some fundamental flaw in what we are.
In this new environment, we become more curious about the space in and around our thoughts and emotions, rather than their content. Our center of gravity shifts from the contents of awareness to awareness itself. Awareness becomes foreground and contents become background. The bottom drops out from underneath us, as well as the top and sides. We’ve arrived home, but it is not the home we thought.
Our orientation shifts from healing and transformation – from getting from “here” to “there” – to resting in our true nature, in a compassionate tending to reality as it is, oriented in curiosity and the love of being alive. In some strange way, we sense that we are already healed, already awake in the immediacy of this moment. But how could this be?
We become aware of a primordial sort of trust in ourselves and in life. Nothing need be cultivated or generated, shifted, or transformed. Not for right now.
To stay with this much openness requires a new level of friendliness, kindness, and compassion. Without it, we’re not going to be able to practice intimacy with the vulnerability, explore the unknown, and stay with the groundlessness of having no reference point other that awareness itself.
Inevitably we will notice that we have left the freshness of now and traveled into past or future, images, memories, daydreams, and fantasies; it can feel somewhat like falling down a rabbit hole. But like Alice in her journeys into Wonderland, things are not as they appear.
When you notice that you have fallen, you could get curious, become fascinated with what it is like to become distracted and the gloriousness of even that… to touch the mystery of lost and found, and very gently return into the spaciousness of now."
~Matt Licata, PhD.
"I dwell in possibility."
Happy Thursday beautiful hearts! Today my heart is spilling with joy as I find myself sitting in a field of possibilities! Handwork, persistence, and a fundamental belief that good is on it's way. An inner knowing that the Universe has my back...and it has your back as well!
Can you touch these possibilities in your life? Can you honor that every wrong turn, so called failed endeavor, or missed opportunity has held an even greater energy for you? One of my teachers always says, "What's meant for you will never miss you."
Every precious moment that has conspired for your highest and best good. Even those ones when we thought we knew best. The endings we had planned out. The beginnings we didn't see coming. Wow...talk about love! Best I can figure, our job is to keep saying YES! YES when our hearts feel fragile and vulnerable. YES when we can't see the path ahead. YES when we get a gut feeling. YES to the magic that is serenading us through our lives!
Keep saying YES my dear friends!! Trust that you are so divinely loved!! Stay turned as magic is happening at Cool Creative Press:)! This magic has me dizzy with gratitude!!!
Cheers to our individual and collective journey's!
