Loving the Distance Practice


Here’s a practice I came up with this morning…

If there is someone you love, but you are not physically with them, one can use that seeming “physical distance” to bless everything in it’s path.

It’s super simple.

Instead of being sad not to be with that person, (although, you can be sad if you want/need to be), I find I can tune into their energy and experience the connection. From there, it’s a 2-way lovefest that can be imagined to travel whatever distance there is between the two of you. Whether that’s down the block or from here to Mexico.

Try it! So good at these times. Tell me about your experience in the comments. I wanna hear. I love doing energy experiments. 😉

Coffee Filters, Overwhelm, and The Real Truth


This morning, it took me quite a few tries to extricate a coffee filter. For an incredibly long cinematic nanosecond, the fact that I kept trying with no progress began to make the situation feel impossible. How is it I cannot accomplish such a simple task? Have I not done this thousands of times? Obviously, I should be able to accomplish this.

Of course, in the end, I was victorious (Yay, me!). However, before that grand moment, I experienced situational angst that spread to the rest of my life. If I can’t accomplish this, how am I supposed to do the other bajillion things which are currently making me feel overwhelmed? Little things, like take care of a child, a house, a yard, and a business all on my own.

I spent a lot of time when I was younger spiraling down rabbit holes such as these. It can be quite the slippery slope. Since I have more experience and understanding now, I am generally able to nip it in the bud.

I don’t actually know where this is going next. I was just inspired to write about the experience because it felt somehow universal. I felt maybe someone out there might say, “Oh thank god, it’s not just me.” I could go on to write a tidy little list of what to do in these situations, but somehow that doesn’t feel totally authentic. I like to be authentic. So, I guess I will simply share what I did. I like to be simple, too.

I stopped it. First, I had to realize I was spiraling down. So, once I realized it, I stopped it. I took a breath. I witnessed my own thoughts. I asked myself if they were even true.

Am I really all alone? (No, even though it often feels that way.)

Do I REALLY need to accomplish the long list of things I wrote down on TODAY in my calendar? (No, indeed, I set those tasks and I can rearrange them. I can give myself a break.)

Do I have everything I need in this moment? (Yes)

Can everything work out? (Yes)

Am I doing so much better than I ever have before? (Yes, even though it doesn’t always seem that way to my critical mind.)

Am I really ok? (Yes.)

I “solved” the “problem” of the coffee filter by changing my normal tactic. It took a bit more time than usual (seriously, like 30 seconds). And another thing came up like that just a short while later, further underscoring this same analogy of life in microcosm.

Nothing is impossible. Stopping and regrouping can help. Changing tactics can help. Questioning our assumptions and thoughts can help. Some things take more time than we think they should. It’s ok. Time is irrelevant in the long run. Life has twists and turns. Things don’t always go as planned. It’s still ok to make a plan. It’s ok for Life to deviate. It’s often beautiful for Life to deviate. It’s all ok.

The Real Truth is always soothing. Allow That.

Apples That Taste Like Flowers

Apples that taste like flowers
Coffee that tastes like flowers

New friends show up
Old lovers don’t

It’s all brighter, deeper
more intense
more beautiful.

Or maybe I am.

Old ladies in parks
accidentally insulting.

I find out later.
It means nothing.

It’s beautiful.

It’s all richer
more vulnerable
more painful


This is Life.
It’s becoming


There is the consistency of being the same, which does not serve. But there is a consistency of listening to the moment, following your heart, and communicating truth with kindness and integrity. This kind of consistency is extremely important. Although it doesn’t LOOK like consistency to the outer world because it is not SAMENESS.

Sameness can be control and very, very boring. People may think they want it, but it rarely serves in the end. It becomes boring, unfresh, untrue.

All masters are unpredictable because they follow the consistency of the heart and serving the moment. This is ever fresh and yet still infinitely trustworthy.
