THE INVITATION by Oriah Mountain Dreamer
“I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own; if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, be realistic, remember the limitations of being human.”
Joy. Dance. Wildhearted. Caution. Realism. Limitations. Being human. And.
Laughing. Having fun. Getting over fears.
My homie Kyle Cease talks w his homie Lewis Howes about fears and about limiting beliefs. While making you laugh. And kickin’ it about loving your fear. Now that’s his jam. He believes that love can take away fear’s power. Boom. And laughing can, too. KC + LH’s talk and laugh about fear and inspiration on the podcast School of Greatness epi : Use Humor to Overcome Fear.
KC says he loves his fear. And he nudges you to do so too. Love whatever, whoever you are afraid of. And if you don’t love it/her/him/they. Then love that you don’t love it. Or her. Or him. Or they.
Or love that you don't love. And. You are beautiful.
So try that today, peeps. When (or if) you have a negative thought, belief, feeling come through your noggin’ (or your stomach or your heart). Love it. Not feelin’ it? Not feelin’ the love? Then love that you don’t love it. And feel that.
I’m giving it a shot, tater tot. Here we go, yo.
It’s still dark this morning in Austin so the sky is almost black. I don’t know how the sky will appear at dawn. Gray. Blue. Or grayish. Or blueish. If it’s gray I’ll love that I don’t love it. If it’s blue I’ll love it.
I don’t know what the late afternoon, early evening temperature will rise to. Will the sun blaze or will the air be steamy, heavy and thick? If I get to siesta through some of it, I’ll love it. If I push through exhaustion when I need rest, I’ll love that I don’t love it.
And in the early morning texted words from my soul sista Erica. "Faith and flow." Faith and flow. Intended for. And for getting over fear. And for having fun. And for laughing. And for cheers! Cheers to being human. And to loving limitations. Or to loving that you don’t love limitations. And to loving realism. And to loving being careful. Or to loving that you don’t love being careful. And to being wildhearted. And strong. And to dancing. And. To being joy.
Peace and xo and joy,
