Essential Wildness

elves lovers

Sometimes we have to allow our love to flow into forbidden territories. When we stay in the familiar and continue to play out our relatedness in standardized and ordinary ways, our love dries out. Wildness is essential to our passion. It brings forth the juiciness, the sensual quality of nectar in a fertile flower. When we hold onto old ways, we die a slow death.

Breathe refreshingly new ways into your ways of loving. Enjoy your nakedness, the sunset streaming through branches, a cool misty rain on your skin. Relinquish tightness, holding back, suffering. Open up allow in the exquisite beauty of your partners nakedness. Bathe in the juiciness of a plump passionate kiss. Be freer to feel this release. Not for sexuality as much as for the pure enjoyment of your senses. They will come alive and they will show you the pleasure of this life that is yours.

When we hold back too much, the fear begins to drive the body and it tightens the grip on life. Go find a private place and bask in the sun for a few minutes and let it warm your skin. Notice how sensual nature is. Endulge timeless moments and quiet, the serenity of an eternal silent moment. Let the drama pass through. All the repetitive stories holding you back from just being free to do as you please.

When we can live in these ways, we don’t need a vacation from life. Life itself is rich and rewarding. Dance in the rain. Be alone for an extended period. Ask yourself…what am I truly longing to experience now. Empty out all the attachments and the ways you mire yourself in tired, old stuck stories. Just breathe freely and feel this newness, this beginning of a new adventurous way to live.

Let new people in and explore a little bit of their world and their ways. Stay true to your values for these are your anchor. But, do try on new ways. Especially if they are sensually provocative. Let your body enjoy life more fully. Our bodies are not just our vehicles to navigate through. They are our safe haven and our source of earthly delight.

Notice how much you can participate and still feel aware, heartfelt and available to your sensitive inner connections. This is not an escape this is love for your human experience through your body. Your heart will respond favorably and you will feel the interconnectedness with the experience tangibly. Sensitively notice the flavors, textures, sounds, colors, the rhythms of life. Look at the colors of the leaves on the trees, notice the coolness or the humidity in the air.

Just noticing like this, quiets the mind and helps engage our bodies. We are human beings, divine in nature, yet, human in our desire to experience these subtle nuances. There can be great pleasure derived from this. But don’t hold on to tight. Let the winds of change free up old fears of grasping and just allow what you are enjoying to be present for you.

It’s great to create a joy list of things like this that bring you delight. These are the activities that are here to help awaken the soul to the body. This is another stage of our homecoming. Just breathe into these sensual experiences. Having gratitude for this blessing. When one is alive in these sensual ways, there is no need for big or expensive ways of life. It is usually through the simplest ways of being that we enjoy the most delightful connections.

Too much indulgence causes a hedonistic nature. We take for granted the foods we eat and we barely taste them. We become consumed with what we can buy and indulge in next. This type of experiencing is usually simple like noticing the double rainbow, or hearing the crickets song, or noticing the subtle aroma of a lilac bush.

When we free ourselves of the conventional ways of escaping, we can settle in more fully and notice these delightfully magical occurrences as if it were the first time. Ironically most of these sensually sensitive opportunities have been around forever. Like the mesmerizing flames of a camp fire, or the smell of wet grass, or the sweet white butterflies dancing in delight.

One of our main problems when we live outside of the magic of our hearts is that we take all this  amazing simplicity for granted. We then begin to need more and more and more. We eat all the animals up, we over pesticide the yards and the foods, we increase the noise volume every where we go, we need too many cars and planes and trains, so we can travel everywhere we haven’t been. Now we have destroyed the natural equilibrium that exists within the wildness. Soon it will be all but perceptible to the masses.

Always stay in full awareness of your values as you are experiencing this planet. At this point she so desperately calls for us to awaken these simple magic ways, before we destroy her essential nature. Together, let’s pause in momentary gratitude for all these wonderous ways that are here for us to care for, fiercely protect and have immense gratitude for. Let’s not take for granted the heaven on earth which resides in our hearts ability to love all this immense beauty. We must be brave and courageous in our right action. Stop using pesticides, contribute to the reprieve of global animal torture by becoming a vegetarian. Reuse the same plastic bags, rewash your baggies. Live in full respect and consideration as a guardian of the blessing of our wild planet…before it is too late. Without our awakening she will die.

Create Your Joy

Create, create, create…

Find your joy…what makes your heart sing? There is a newness in spring that comes to each and every one. Whether we choose to play with this depends. So often, we are stuck in our old stories and we miss the beauty and the wonder of new life.

Babies were recently born on my porch. Every year a mother bird lays her eggs in a hanging candle holder on my porch. They hatch and I listen to them develop the beginning of their joy song. I hear them chirping and singing loudly, for a few days and then they fly off.

I notice the buds on my apple trees, the bugs crawling and flying and the spiders weaving their intricate webs. So much life is awakening. Yet, many of us miss this. Busy, busy…lots of mind chatter…we miss this life. Running here and there, sharing victim stories, complaining and perpetuating suffering…we miss this beauty.

We don’t even notice that we are in the midst of so much creation that is just begging us to stop and play along. The birds are saying…find your joy song, the spiders are saying…weave your web,
the butterflies are saying…bring in color. Find your sounds, laugh, giggle, move, dance, ride your bike, cook, play music…and share, share your joy everywhere.

Many are becoming aware of the earth changes and are scared. What if we all take what we have and just create together. My roommate and I are creating a veggie garden. First time, I have lots of herbs, flowers, lilac bushes, but, this is my first food garden. I am so delighted to imagine cooking or eating raw garden veggies that are my own creations. Really this is such an amazing co-creation between seed, water, sun, my hands, my roommates hands and our caring everyday for this new life.

Yesterday, I made a new friend. We walked and talked in the sun, walking along the Boulder Creek for five and a half hours. Our feet got soar because we were walking part of the time on the sidewalk barefoot. The rest of the time we walked in the soothing fresh green grass. Feeling the grass between our toes was delicious. We even stopped to do yoga poses in the water, balancing on rocks and doing dancer pose on a sand bed. He said it was one of his most enjoyable times.

Let life take you. Just play, stop the mental chatter. Really feel into presence. Immerse yourself in creating your own joyful rainbow web. Get all tangled up in it and laugh…’til tears run down your warm cheeks. Let that old stagnant energy go now. This is your wild and free life…live it now.

You ask what can you do to help your planet?

Live your greatest joy now…
