What I Believe
I believe that we're each born with a very particular genius - or, as Michael Meade puts it, “…the spirit that’s already there….the inner muse, the divine twin, the resident spirit of the Soul present in each person, that involves our own unique way of seeing life...” - and that our real work in life is to find, embody, and inhabit that genius as fully as possible while we’re here.
Furthermore, I believe that our planet actually wants (needs) us to take our true place in the world in order for the entire ecosystem to truly thrive. To quote Angeles Arrien in The Second Half of Life,
“Where we don’t bring our gifts and talents to the world is where the Earth becomes sicker. It’s important for us to bring our medicine to the sweet face of Mother Nature, to bring our gifts and talents into the world, and to begin to drop our shrouds of insufficiency.”
I believe that when we are feeling confused or unclear about our direction in life that we have actually come to a very potent place: we have come to the end of a known road and to the beginning of a path filled with possibility. At such a juncture, we have the potential to experience life, and ourselves, in a completely different way. As Wendell Berry said, “…when we no longer know what to do we have come to our real work….”
I believe that having guides, mentors, teachers, coaches, true adults and true elders in our lives is essential for our becoming. Having people who have gone before us and who are willing to share is such a gift.
I believe that we are here to use our imaginations in service of Life.
I believe that our dreams are exactly what the world needs now.
I believe that WE are the ones that can and will change the world with our dreams, and that it's up to each of us to do so now.
I believe that there is no time to waste. NOW is the time to listen to that still, small voice within and make real that which you feel in your heart and see in your soul.
