Peeking out through the Instagram veil to WISH you WELL on this Autumn Equinox. (a personal favorite holiday & season) The day where DARK meets the LIGHT in EQUAL measure, a potent time to MAKE PEACE with the darkness within you and/or around you. (RITUAL RECIPE: light a candle, make 3 WISHES for yourself, for someone you love & a place in the world- say the below aloud three times) if you're feeling generous- tag someone that you wish well and I'll wish them well in my wishing ritual too xo ●Blessing●Come Home to Yourself by John O'Donahue

May all that is unforgiven in you be released

May your fears yield their deepest tranquilities

May all that is unlived in you blossom into a future

Graced with love●

I've always loved this quote by the great poet John O'Donohue. It struck me to hear someone with such a gift for language speak of music with such reverence. .

The Avett Brothers are what happens when music and poetry come together. Seeing them live has become one of my absolute favorite things. .

As someone who is moved deeply by music and poetry, their live shows are a transcendent experience. I simultaneously feel that I'm fully meeting myself in a private and solitary way, experiencing a deep connection with the band--these beautiful artists who are speaking directly to my soul, and sharing something magical and profound with strangers. .

Feeling immense gratitude for @theavettbrothers for a spectacular show last night, for their hearts, their passion, their creativity, their integrity, their vulnerability, their presence, and their joy. Feeling grateful for music and poetry and this beautiful place that I get to live. Feeling grateful for my sensitive nature that allows me to be transported by music--to another place, to all places, and to the center of my being. 🙏🎶💙✌️

I never thought I’d fall in love with a dead ex-priest. His incredible mind and spirit live on in his work. You can hear him on YouTube.

“I would #love to #live like a #river flows, carried by the #surprise of its own unfolding.” – #johnodonohue - 💙💙 #blue #water #riverflow #sunset #iphoneography #insta #instagood #instagram #instafit #instaquote #instapic #pakistan #punjab #

Bu sevgide siz maskesiz ve gösterişsiz bir şekilde anlaşılıyorsunuz. Yüzeysel ve işlevsel yalanlar ve sosyal tanışıklığın getirmiş olduğu yarı-gerçeklikler geri çekiliyor, kendiniz olabiliyorsunuz. Sevgi size derin bir anlayış veriyor ve bu anlayış da değerli bir şey. Anlaşıldığınız yer evinizdir. Anlayış, aitliği besler. Gerçekten anlaşıldığınızı hissettiğiniz zaman kendinizi, diğer ruhun güvenine ve sığınağına bırakmak konusunda özgür hissedersiniz…

Bu sevgi sanatı, diğer insanın özel ve kutsal kimliğini açığa çıkarır. Sevgi, diğer insanın bireyselliğinin ve ruhunun gizli imzasını gerçekten okuyabilecek tek ışıktır. Bu dünyada yalnızca sevginin okuma yazması vardır; kişiliğin ve kaderin şifresini çözebilir.


“One of the most interesting forms of complexity is contradiction. We need to rediscover contradiction as a creative force within the soul. Beginning with Aristotle, the Western thought tradition has outlawed contradiction as the presence of the impossible, and consequently, as an index of the false and the illogical. Hegel, alone, had the vision, subtly and hospitality of reflection to acknowledge contradiction as the complex force of growth which disavows mere linear progress in order to awaken all the aggregate energies of an experience. It is the turbulence and conflict of their inner conversation which brings an integrity of of transfiguration and not the mere replacement of one image, surface or system by another which so often passes for change. This perspective makes for a more complex notion of truth. It demands an ethic of authenticity which incorporates and goes beyond the simplistic intentions of mere sincerely.”

of its own unfolding.

So excited to meet our babe soon! Grateful to capture this moment along the journey. Huge thanks to the incredibly talented @enriquerobles_az for these shots! “Nothing could have prepared your heart to open like this.
From beyond the skies and the stars
This echo arrived inside you
And started to pulse with life,
Each beat a tiny act of growth,
Traversing all our ancient shapes
On its way home to itself.
Once it began, you were no longer your own.
A new, more courageous you, offering itself
In a new way to a presence you can sense
But you have not seen or known.
Like some primeval moon,
Your soul brightens
The tides of essence
That flow to your child.” -John O’Donohue

This morning my new grandson arrived.
Knowing he was about to join us all in this world, I thought it best to bless him and his life ahead. (This is an adaptation of a John O’Donohue blessing.) You have just joined your new family,
May they be delighted by you.
At how their love
Comes into blossom.

May this life you are born into
Be filled with days that will shape you
Days so incredible that you will wonder
And so frequent as to seem ordinary.

If your destiny is sheltered,
May the grace of this privilege
Reach and bless the other infants
Who are destined for torn places.

If your destiny is difficult
May you find you're never alone
Discovering beneath the turmoil
The very One who thought to make you.

May your eyes never lose sight
Of why you have come here.
And may your memories ever be filled
with those of us who are are glad you did.

“The world rests in the night. Trees, mountains, fields, and faces are released from the prison of shape and the burden of exposure. Each thing creeps back into its own nature within the shelter of the dark. Darkness is the ancient womb. Nighttime is womb- time. Our souls come out to play. The darkness absolves everything; the struggle for identity and impression falls away. We rest in the night.” - John O'Donohue

"If you send out goodness from yourself, or if you share that which is happy or good within you, it will all come back to you multiplied ten thousand times. In the kingdom of love there is no competition; there is no possessiveness or control. The more love you give away, the more love you will have."
-- John O'Donohue.

“When we love and allow ourselves to be loved, we begin more and more to inhabit the kingdom of the eternal. Fear changes into courage, emptiness becomes plenitude, and distance becomes intimacy”- John O’Donohue
Feeling awash with gratitude for the mysterious lineup of folks I’ve gotten to be with the past few days. 3/4 relatively spontaneous meet ups were with dear friends whom I haven’t gotten to sit and connect with for months or years, and each one was such a specific gift to me. It is good and necessary to be in the kind of community where reconnection feels like coming home to a part of yourself. Thankful for the way these ones remind me who I am and Who’s I am ❤️ @mattjennings17 @janeyjennings @rkarsuperstar @thats.a.jenny #jamesschoensiegel #hedoesnthaveinstaso🤷🏽‍♀️ @amyleighmick 📸: @lemurph #johnodonohue #celticwisdom #inspirationalquotes #inspire #friendship
