“The sacred is discovered in what moves and touches us, in what makes us tremble.”― Sam Keen
“Life leads us into its spaces slowly. We’re not sure what awaits us next. We set out to explore it, moving circumspectly, with a sense of anticipation then suddenly it opens up and teases us with its transparency.”― Bhuwan Thapaliya
Slowly then suddenly.
Then back to slow, steady, delay, detour.
Leave room for surprises.
Sacred sky opening up.
Holy ground we walk.
Explore and tremble.
“Soul grows in communion. Word by word, story by story, for better or worse, we build our world. From true conversation – speaking and listening – communication deepens into compassion and creates community.”― Sam Keen, Hymns to an Unknown God: Awakening The Spirit In Everyday Life
“Most of us today were parented and socialized in such a way that, by the time we reach adulthood, our Genius is so covered over with shoulds and shouldn’ts that we often don’t know where to look for our Juno, our Genius, our authentic self. In fact, the whole notion seems questionable. Is there really such a thing as an “authentic self,” a “real self”? I say yes. Perhaps it is suppressed or scuffed up, but it can be liberated; it can be polished. I have personally experienced this. after years of trying and failing, and then trying more and succeeding by fits and starts, I know now that when I get my small ego and my frightened reactivity out of the way, my authenticity, my soulfulness, will rush in and fill the confines of my being. It will guide my steps and gratify even the toughest times with a sense of meaning. Your Juno or Genius must be courted. Although it is strong and luminous, your guardian spirit is unassuming and even shy. It responds to persistent yet kindly biddings. Once awakened, it outshines everything false within you and in your life. But it needs room and time to stretch as it stirs. Your Juno, your Genius, they know who you are—they know you suffer from a case of mistaken identity.”— Marrow: A Love Story by Elizabeth Lesser
Beyond our emotions, circumstances and ego, abundance, energy and light wait patiently for our return. Suspend and release limiting beliefs, momentary moods and move into the expanse and depth of your Juno – your Genius.
Mindset is important, but “soul-set” is the path. Tend to your soul garden daily through meditation, reflection and exploration. Allow thoughts and feelings that bind, limit and tether to come, go and pass on by, making space for equanimity, ease and light.
