Childlike Wonder

If you have a young child in your life, or are in touch with your inner child, this song I created is for you. It captures the awe and wonder of a little one looking at everything in the world and saying, “What’s that?”

(I might be hormonal because my own damn song made me tear up. I like to think of a child encountering heaven or the wonders of the universe, gleefully pointing at it all.)

Celebrate Yourself

Today, I am celebrating Me, my authentic being — my soul.

I am an artist. I sculpt in clay and wool, bringing what beauty I see in nature alive.

I bring my spirit to life in rattles for meditation: I create art to find the soul within.

I write poetry to express the beauty I see.

I create music that lifts my spirit and excites my soul.

I seek to share my philosophy of life and what truths seem evident to me, hoping to help others.

I connect with animals.

I believe in being a gentle goddess.

And so today, I celebrate myself.

Tell me about your soul, tell me the things you do, the things that make you so beautiful. Don’t be shy. Celebrate yourself with me here.

 

Imagination’s Wormholes

She shuffle-sways up and down
the train’s aisles, the lurch
a warp in space, a tug
on time. Waiting
for Mongolia, she leans
out a window, her thoughts streaming
loose from her skull, wind-swimming
behind her, each wish armed
before it tears away into air, into freedom, to change
the present, the past, and the future.
Spirit has wormholes too, she thinks,
getting down from the chair,
still imagining Mongolia and train-sway
in her own domestic kitchen.

Our Soul’s Purpose and the Higher Self

The higher self can be viewed as a fractal, of which you are one single iteration. I believe the higher self ultimately transcends space and time, containing every possible version of your soul in every possible circumstance, across all possible realities and parallel universes. The essence of your soul, the one thing that ties all these potential versions of you together, is thus revealed in the shape of the fractal and describes your soul’s purpose.

Yet if you’ve ever played with the scale of a fractal image, you can imagine how only an infinite being could perceive its ultimate complexity and shape. So how do we even begin to approach an understanding of the higher self and our soul’s purpose?

I think it is important to allow for evolution here: if you’ve come upon an inkling of your soul’s purpose, or even created a statement about it, don’t call it a day and stop. Your soul’s purpose looks different at different scales and the scales represent your levels of conscious awareness, your ability to see and know what your soul’s purpose is. So as you develop your awareness, your concept of your soul’s purpose will evolve, perhaps even completely change, like any living thing, so why not allow for this growth?

My point is that the higher self is infinite and your life can be a journey of exploring it, learning deeper and bigger truths. It never really ends. If today you think your purpose is to teach, allow this statement some room – or else be stuck forever at one level of seeing and knowing yourself.
