The moment you stop running. The moment you stop running away from your greatest gifts. The moment you stop running away from everything you always knew you had to do. The moment you stop running away from your painted pictures of pain and misery. The moment you stop running away from joy, from talent, from purpose, from beauty, from yourself. The moment you stop running.
The moment where the moment itself is so significant you can only recognize it in hindsight, where all you get is still only a glimpse. All you know is the intense awareness filling your body, like when you can't shake the most vivid dream, as if your life suddenly got a new sound, an undertone or even a keynote, all you know is that everything is different and you can not and will not go back at any price.
Because you see. You look way behind the mirror and you see meaning, you see that life has meaning. Your life. You see the parts of you holding you down, claiming your worthlessness in a bigger picture, you see the longing for love in these desperate actions and you see, yes, you see how you can provide love and let loose and open up and start giving. Because you see. You see the moment you stopped running away from your greatest gifts was also the moment you could start sharing them with life. With your family. Your friends. Your world. The moment you stop running. The moment you start sharing.
This is a calling to slow down and listen. To take a deep breath and explore our personal connection with Mother Earth. The feminine and masculine, the beautiful and dirty, the real, the messy, the sacred. Once it was natural. Today it feels crucial.
For the next 100 Days I will write a book to the Earth. For the Earth. With the Earth. The book, and the journey, is also to you. For you. And with you. Together, we are everything.
Use #FortheEarth to share and, please, add your story.
