Those who have avoided love in life from fear of its pain have lost more than the lover, who by losing himself gains all. The loveless first lose all, until at last their self is also snatched away from their hands. The warmth of the lover's atmosphere, the piercing effect of his voice, the appeal of his words, all come from the pain of his heart. The heart is not living until it has experienced pain. Man has not lived if he has lived and worked with his body and mind without heart. The soul is all light, but all darkness is caused by the death of the heart. Pain makes it alive. The same heart that was once full of bitterness, when purified by love becomes the source of all goodness. All deeds of kindness spring from it.

🌳Underground Forest🌳
Coming up in December, I have the pleasure of leading a deep dive into story and song craft with my amazing sister muse @yoniversemonologues. .
We will be guiding a two day immersion for women in the art of storytelling, vocal medicine, and song, as guiding tools for navigating the underground forest of our intimate selves. .
Sirena Andrea is one of my favorite inspired leaders in her field of creativity as medicine, and has been a major influence on me and my art over the past 4 years. I am so honored to create and play with her in this magical way.
Registration link is in my bio. Looking forward to creating and musing with you for this special live event.

You are a gorgeous creature
of the mystery.
Billions of stars
Have burned for light years
To bring you here
to this moment.
You are forged of the flame
Who chases the eternal kiss
A poetic expression
of perfected longing
which has already collapsed
into fits of uncontrollable laughter
at the paradox of life.
You are the unexplainable nuance
In the epoch of this moment
The thing that makes
any great work of art
a true masterpiece
You are all of this and more
By simply existing
And for that
I adore you
And pray daily
for your great epiphany of love

4 years ago, ‘Unstoppable Joy’ was released. Prepping for a rerelease of this tune next spring, with a music video project we’ve been working on since the beginning. Looking forward to this ;)

Feeling ready to see what is wanting to travel through this pen

Seeing through the veils
Of past pain
of our well crafted stories
Into the heart of truth
And presence
Revealing the song of our soul
Discovered there
In the underground forest
of our being.
It is an honor to present this work with the incredible Sirena Andrea of @yoniversemonologues.
Join us for a special weekend as we dive into voice, song and story to guide us through these times.

‘Where do I go to find
Images of woman
Woman made
Our wisdom cannot be lost
Our spirit cannot be broken
Awaken to your power’
-Sheila Chandra
From ‘Lineage’ .

She said
‘Lay your body down
At the bottom of the hill
Come drink from the well child
Until you’ve had your fill
Then walk along the silver path
Moon beneath her feet
Can you hear it now
Beloved one
Rising from the deep
Drink your fill from the well’

Calling in the healing waters
The Wisdom in letting go
Nothing to hold onto
Surrendering to the preciousness
of life in all its magic
Even the crumbling of worlds
And the washing away
Of what once was

Recently I had the pleasure of seeing @estastonne live in Santa Cruz. I highly recommend catching him while he’s on tour! His performance was mesmerizing and transported us all. So much magic. Hazzah to great art and dedicated craft. I’m inspired.

The Time Before Death

hope for the Guest while you are alive.
Jump into experience while you are alive!
Think... and think... while you are alive.
What you call "salvation" belongs to the time before death.

If you don't break your ropes
while you're alive,
do you think ghosts will do it after?

The idea
that the soul will join with the ecstatic
just because the body is rotten -- that is all fantasy.
What is found now is found then.
If you find nothing now,
you will simply end up with an apartment in the City of Death.
If you make love with the divine now,
in the next life
you will have the face
of satisfied desire.

So plunge into the truth,
find out who the Teacher is,
Believe in the Great Sound!

Kabir says this:
When the Guest is being searched for,
it is the intensity of the longing
for the Guest
that does all the work.

Look at me,
and you will see
a slave of that intensity.

flags at half staff
now every day
who’s got the gun
who’s got the killer
for the pain
who’s got a memory frame
of a time when the winds
blowed of sweeter changes
on the faces of my kin
we’ve fallen on hard times
over sand drawn lines
where these walls of fire
keep us burning on the pyre
but there's wise words
I feel them speaking through the light
yet my sad dark eyes
are still wondering why
if a mothers deepest fear
is losing her babe
did i lose myself
somewhere along the way
did i forget the song
of the ancient winds prayed
Blowin flags at half staff
now every day
we’ve fallen on hard times
over sand drawn lines
where these walls of fire
keep us burning on the pyre
but there's wise words
I feel them speaking through the light
yet my sad dark eyes
are still wondering why
(New song this morning, integrating the news of yet another shooting)
