To the woman who has lost her spark.To the woman whose get up and go, has well and truly gone.This is for you.This is to remind you whose daughter you are.This is to remind you, that you don’t have to be everything to everyone, every day.You didn’t sign up for that.Remember when you used to laugh? Sing? Throw caution to the wind?Remember when you used to forgive yourself more quickly for not always being perfect.You can get that back again.You really can.And that doesn’t have to mean letting people down or walking away.It just means being kinder to you, feeling brave enough to say no sometimes.Being brave enough to stop sometimes.And rest.It starts the moment you realise that you’re not...

Take Off Your Spiritual Mask

I am in love with this blessed mess of our humanity, more than ever. I see the Divine shining through the stink and the shit, the Absolute penetrating into every pore and crevice of relative existence. I see nonduality in the hot, sticky, burning mess of duality itself, unspeakable courage and hope at the pit of our despair.I see the sad old patriarchal spirituality, the toxic masculine cosmology that shamed and devalued the body, its desires and its vulnerability, its passion and its sweat and its tears, its needs and its gloriously awkward and often highly contradictory feelings, slowly dying and being reborn as something more tangible, and honest, and grounded, and integrated, and real.We are beginning to understand that...

Indecision

Friend, please, Do not try to decide now.Do not shut any possibility out of your heart. Honour this place of not-knowing.Bow before this bubbling mess of creativity.Slow down. Breathe.Sink into wonderment.Befriend the very place where you stand.Any decision will make itself, in time.Any choice will happen when your defences are down. Answers will appear only when they are ready.When the questions have been fully honoured, and loved.Do not label this place 'indecision'. It is more alive than that.It is a place where possibilities grow.It is a place where uncertainty is sacred.There is courage in staying close. There is strength in not knowing. Friend, please know,There is simply no choice now.Except to breathe, and breathe again, And trust this Intelligence beyond...

Not everyone will heal in this lifetime. It’s important that we accept and understand this. The perpetual emphasis on acknowledging and healing trauma is a beautiful thing, but its not for everyone. Because some of us don’t have the capacity to heal. Some can’t even get out of bed, because of the weight of their pain and the complexity of their trauma. Too much has happened, and there is no possibility of transformation. This is very hard to accept in our toxic positivity culture, one where trauma is the new buzz word and where people forget that they are not walking in someone’s else’s shoes. Just because you were able to heal parts of your past, doesn’t mean everyone can...
