Today, we dig into the invitation to embrace the TREASURE HUNT of life … in the easy and hard, mysterious and known seasons. Let’s begin by taking a moment to pause, to breathe, to be still.


BE Still. Surrender.

The world is big.
The needs are great.
The treasure hunt is riveting.
But, here and now,
let it all go.
If a burden or worry comes to mind,
imagine exhaling it out.
Just for now.
One by one, exhale each and every thing that comes to mind.
Cultivate silence.

From my story in today’s Soulfully Ablaze reading:

I see how my passion was being sparked and stoked years earlier, in my first memory of an accent with Aunt Deby … as I ripped out magazine pages and wallpapered my room with people and life from all over the world … when I got on a plane bound for India as a teenager. Such simple, EVERYday, and important clues for the treasure hunt of my life.
Step by step,
year by year,
the sparks would BE set more ablaze, the distance would lessen,
and these faraway people and I would connect


Ponder. Go deeper.

My friend, what have you loved for a long time? What beckoned your attention as a kid that might be part of the treasure hunt of your life as you know it now … a piece of what has always been a part of you? Imagine. Go back. What did you love to play, what did you love to do, what images, movies, and books captured your imagination? Be curious about those early years and explore what comes up.


Engage. Commit.

Research a bit today and put in your calendar a time to go to a lecture, watch a movie, listen to a podcast, or start reading a book that will stoke the fire that is sparking in you. Have fun, explore, and go for it!

Given the state of our world – the Corona virus pandemic, school and work closures, challenges to global markets and personal paychecks – we must take a few moments to BE still and to pause. These days, more than ever, there has been much clamoring for our attention 24-7 with LOUD, FEAR-based, PANIC-inducing messages – but let’s practice peace, together, amidst these stormy days. I share these PoPs so you can FILL UP with peace and navigate this wild and crazy season with strength and courage.

You are loved.
You belong.
We belong to each other.
Let’s standTALL together and light up the world!

My love is with and for you, my friend. Have a most blessed and beautyFULL day!
