Words for walking back to the strong house:
You can put your hand over your heart, or sit with your palms up
Or just rest or relax.
May you practice being yourself.
May you put into practice each day, being your true self.
How? Yeah I’m really glad you ask.
Do not betray yourself by acting radically different in every different person’s presence.
Be the same person. With all people.
Handsome person comes in the room, you don’t suddenly brighten up and start talking in a barbie doll voice
Just be regular. Be the soulful self that you are.
Notice beauty everywhere but do not change in response to it when you are centered in the soulful self.
May you practice humor in order to bypass invitations to doom.
Practice exiting quickly.
Leave only your laughter in the air.
Pleasant. Respectful. Continue on. Hold onto your own shape.
May you practice being yourself alone.
Being alone alone can clarify many things for us.
Take time to question your self.
Self examination is how we become conscious.
May you hold onto your shape during high winds,
During pressure to perform something.
May you only be yourself. May you hold onto your shape especially under flattery.
In the midst of threats. Ridicule. Shaming. Hold fast.
Because right conduct is stronger than ridicule.
May you practice putting a space of time in between requests.
If necessary, say no. And if I change my mind, I’ll let you know.
May you refuse to strive towards phony, malignant, competitive or foolish standards.
May you remain in full sight of your soul place.
Choose your own. Make your own. Build your own.
Nourish yourself from your own soul.
May you strive daily and practice for the place in your life where you are not afraid to ask what the soul wants and how it wants it build.
And don’t be afraid that your skills aren’t equal to the soul’s vision.
May you resist being colonized, utterly, by those who do not have your soul’s interests at heart.
Keep your shape.
It is the best shape to survive weathers and strong winds.
May you choose advisors who care about what you care about from the soul on up.
Don’t mistake cruelty for critique. It is not necessary.
Do not think tagging along to those who are shiny as a way to receive shine. it isn’t.
Go find your own star.
May you beware a hallow vessel those who need to be filled not by their own essence but by yours. Stay away.
They need to fill from their own bowl. And you from yours. And then, you can exchange with one another.
May you perfect non-seductability and instead wobble forward with the rest of us, some times on all fours.
Heeding the call instead of the ego.
May it be so for thee and may it be so for me. And may it be so for all of us. Amen amen amen. And a little woman.
