Wherever you are headed, remember that it can only ever take you halfway. Come home. Return because you hear Love’s call and leave again when you no longer can. Because Wholeness is the quiet dance between both.
Whatever inspires your awakening is an orientation, not a destination.
And even if your practice reveals to you how vast and open you truly are, you were never meant to spend years adrift at sea, away from the earth of your body.
You are here to descend, to return home with salted skin, starlit eyes, and a deep gratitude for the dirt beneath your feet.
Because more than we need ascended people, we need embodied Beings, living their wisdom in the thick of daily life.
If anything, our spiritual practice will make us more human, or at least, less resistant to the fact we are one…
A New Offering
Over the past 6 years, I have followed many paths that promised to help me create a lifestyle, an income, and a meaningful career from my writing.
None of them worked. Especially because I am the kind of person I am; feelings-full, slow, inward, awkward, meanings-full, and in need of a lifetime of rest…
Nothing has given me a life of joy like stepping away from the modern hustler archetype and following my own quiet myth, which has ultimately unearthed the kind of well-being that has little to do with accolades and much more to do with poetry as being a way to simplify life.
This is what I’d love to offer you - poetic ways to follow your own unique and creative expression so that you can live from and through it.
Let’s share conversations that challenge economic models that use linear growth as the only gauge of progress and cultivate a stronghold for slow, simple, alternative practices that allow us all to live and work creatively.
I believe once you learn how to deeply listen to what works for you, your creativity will show you where to go, what to do next, and how best to share your message with this slowly shiting world.
Not interested? Don’t worry, I won’t be sending any more emails on this offering :)
READ THE 1st PATRON THREAD HERE
A ‘thread’ is just an easily accessible section of my Substack profile where only we can communicate with each other via the app. The format is short and precise, with no long-form text, so we can focus on the comments. A thread will be sent out on Thursday of each week, and you can read the first thread here.
Hope to see you in the discussion, inspiring the slow, simple, and creative journey in each other,
