“Someday after mastering winds, waves, tides and gravity,
we shall harness the energies of love. And then, for the second time in the history of the world, Man will discover fire.”
~ Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
Dagote shi gotah diyi ~ Welcome my family of Spirit . .
As always, I pray you are well and thriving!
What an amazing time to be alive! Intense change is jolting us out of our comfort zone, and beckoning us to stretch, grow and go where Love calls us!
On our home front, we are preparing to move from WA to AZ. We’re excited to be reunited with family and friends there, and are always delighted to connect with new ones, too.
Maybe that includes you or someone you have ties to? As so, drop us a line and say ‘Hello!’
With sweet sorrow, we also are preparing to say our goodbyes to our family, friends and community circles here! We love the NW and will always carry its Spirit in our Hearts!
This move is a quick shift for us, requiring us to be present, sure-footed and have faith in our selves, our vision and Source. We are returning home, in many ways, after leaving for the NW just over six years ago.
It feels much aligned with the energy of the times.
Collectively, we are beginning to awaken!, to follow our bliss while trusting the still small voice of Love within. We are quickly ditching a dulling dream of lack and separation,to find we are World citizens, dreaming awake a One Heart Nation!
With these massive shifts in our world reality, we are finding it necessary - yes, vital! - to turn within to find our Truth.
No longer can we rely on a crumbling, old-paradigm matrix to nourish and sustain us, to guide and inspire us. Rather, it is our time to cleanse and purify our hearts and minds that we may see clearly the path before us. To let go and flow with the swift waters of change that are carrying us to new shores, new communities, and new world realities.
One thing I love about the ever-evolving Portland area, our current home, is the forward-thinking, cultural creative Spirit that weaves together the land and the people. Fittingly, a common bumper-sticker here is, “Keep Portland Weird!”
In this *weird* city, we recently attended the NW film festival, to see ‘Fierce Light’, an engaging, inspiring and heart-breaking movie about spirited-activism by Velcrow Ripper. If you have the chance to see it - go!
For now, let me share this:
I walked away with a renewed passion and commitment to living an authentic life.
Beloveds, it became piercingly clear that nothing less at this time with suffice. Nothing greater will ever be asked of us, nor a more priceless gift can we offer the world.
Who are we to deny our greatness, or to hide in the shadows and play ’small’?
‘Fierce Light’ is a radiant guide, beckoning us make the journey through shadow of separation — to merge Spirit with Action, Purpose with passion and step forward to shine our authentic light. And live it!
Scene by scene, Ripper reveals acts of compassion in the face of
hatred, Love in the face of fear, and joy in light of miseries darkness.
Ultimately, this film mirrors the beauty of Choice: one moment, one person, one heart at a time - choosing to harness the energy of Love and bravely stand for it!
Beloveds - This is why we co-created the Go Gratitude
experiment, and World Gratitude, with you:
To awaken this fierce light within and deliver us home to the heart of Love.
To help us recognize the feeling, and presence, of the Divine -
in all things, in all places, in all people.
To empower and fortify our ability to choose wisely no
matter what obstacles, ignorance or fear we are faced with.
To BE-Member we are One Heart United, in Love with Life, daily choosing to Go Gratitude!
With Gratitude as our guide, we can let go of all that no longer serves. We can grow and stretch into beyond illusory limitations and separation, to find what connects us, inspires us, and what truly supports the continuance of Life!
Thankfully, each and every one of us have a built-in guidance system - the feeling and experience of Gratitude — that lights our inner path and guides our way home to the heart of what matters, home to the heart of Love.
It is the choice and courage to go within — to find our truth and then go with Gratitude — that IS and WILL BE our saving grace! We will remember how to live peacefully and thrive by gratefully embracing, embodying and shining our own fierce light!
As we flow into the holy-day season, and prepare to complete this turn around the Sun, we want to take a moment to thank you for all that you are in our lives.
Thank you for the opportunity to be of service, and for helping us - myself and the ground crew of Go Gratitude - to refine our program, build our community and daily evolve into a deeper experience of Love.
Thank you for the connections you share and the insights you offer that guide, inspire and enhance our lives. Thank you for following your bliss, for living your Truth and for coming together, as One Heart united, to witness the Great Shift of the Ages and embrace the Great*Full*Ness of Life.
Thank you for supporting Go Gratitude - by word of mouth, through thought, prayer, offers of assistance and generous donations that make possible our outreach in the world.
We are blessed beyond measure to come together with you, reflecting what happens when a world wakes to the power of Love and Gratitude:
We have discovered fire for the second time. It lives and breathes in our *hearts*!
We look forward to sharing the unfolding journey as we witness the Great Shift, unwrap our fierce light, and make changes as we grow!
Thank you for joining us for this experiment in Gratitude. Thank you for being in our lives. Thank you for being YOU!
With deep love and Gratitude,
and the ground crew of Go Gratitude
