Rough Transition to Transformation

My life is so incredibly blessed right now because I am recognizing that more deeply everyday!
In the most ordinary of ways, I am having one transforming experience after the other. It is hard to articulate much more than that tonight as this past week has been one of major accomplishment through hard physical work_ in the most ordinary of ways. I am tired, well deservingly.

What is different is that I am showing up with no preconceptions, or rules, or conditions in my head for how things have to be ahead of time. In my experiences with circumstances as they are occurring, I am not chewing on reactions in my mind, until I have chewed them flat.

I am solidly skilled and I am negotiating with life with success in small, significant ways!

This is my path as I am building it now, moving away from the interior life to a life transitioning back out into the material world and the world of relationships with other adults. This is what I bring to the table of the world after many years of family history healing, working with personal insight and cultivating a conscious relationship to silence; to the eternal stillness that dwells within. I bring that mountain solid sense of self that Thich Naht Hahn teaches on so much in the work of Loving Kindness.

Life! I came back to express my eternal love for life, in all of her inexorable ecstasy! I dedicate the remainder of my life in humble ways at the beginning, moving into guiding and teaching others, what I know and understand in order to empower the voices of impact. Those female lives marked by addiction, abandonment and the violence in those whose job it was to protect us a long time ago. Through self-expression, yoga-centered somatic psychology and alternative nutrition, I dedicate my life to guiding and teaching others to heal themselves, standing up to violence and saying, "NO. This must end now."

It is a humble statement of intention. Fuzzy in the beginning, yet in time and experience, my students will also be my teachers
