If you could describe yourself in two words, what would they be? I was inspired by a story my daughter wrote when she was in the Peace Corps. She said that she was really risk-adverse and yet she sought risk out. She really loved to move slowly and sought out situations that made her move quickly (her internal rhythms were always lovely and slow) She referred to herself as a “daredevil slug.” I loved this. It was juicy and funny and revealing, and so much more.
I had before, words which were wildly velvet-fisted. Am I cheating with hyphens? Everything in my life has changed and so I realize I need new words to define myself, so here goes: “know-nothing light” or “blank vastness” or “revamped heart.” I have so many now, yet I am nothing, for nothing is about me anymore. I am truly a vessel to be used however the Divine sees fit. Share your words for your Self now. Try to get both parts—your amazingness and your darkness. Put them together and they will help you to see and feel your way through this next, very important phase of planet Earth. You are both; you are neither; you are more than the words and the words are more than you. Don’t let them define you but let them shed light on what is up for you now.
I love you all. Oh, maybe that is my new self title, “know-nothing lover.” Be the lover you seek my dear ones and laugh today and every day because you can.
