“We come spinning out of nothingness, scattering stars like dust.” -Rumi ✨💃🏼
@deepakchopra spoke last night in Santa Cruz, and reminded us of the incredible journeys that each of us has been on, in order to arrive here and now. Just to pause and contemplate the journey of DNA and cells... our relationship to the microbiome... the overwhelming amount of non-human that we are... the ineffable iterations of evolution and growth... and yet, we have arrived! In the whole cosmos, it is now. That last now is gone. Nothing is coming, and nothing is gone. This is present awareness. Let this be an inward expansion. .
So much gratitude to @the_moonleo and @karissa_cates 🙌🏼 you are stardust beings sharing presence and awareness! I’m so happy to have had that experience with both of you! And @octoberjen31 you were there in spirit! ✨✨✨
And dad (@michaelbirnbaumart), I’m tagging you too. Thank you for being there for me in a completely compassionate and confident way, whenever I need it. Thank you for my first introduction to @deepakchopra as a child, learning the Seven Laws of Spiritual Success through your example of a humble, strong, and kind growth mindset. You are a gift. ❤️
Happy NOW, stardust beings. ✨
#happyweekend , friends! ✨It’s been so beautiful out, so I’ve gotten my butt outside every day this week! Here’s to a weekend of even more. ☀️👙🥂 .
Thank you @meghansmolkaphotography for all the things!!! 💌🌟
Post-EcoFarm closing circle on the beach. Playing a giant kelp didgeridoo (which was so strange and I am not remotely good at it so I couldn’t stop laughing). 🤣 Listening to @santacruzbeeco ukin’ away like a pro. 🎼Whale spouts in the distance. 🐳Waxing moon rising above my head. 🌔 No other place I’m supposed to be. #happyplace#ecofarm2018#whitesand#shitcalifornianssay .
Some days you work 15 hours straight, eat pizza AND friend chicken in the same sitting, and play the kazoo to loud techno music. Other days, you slow down just to marvel at what the waves and the tide are doing. 🍕🌊
@luqazo it was an absolutely silly wonderful time with you here these past couple weeks! You are a gem of a human and I am so grateful to have you as a friend. Thank you (and darn you!!) for getting #swedishfika stuck in my head. Probably for forever. 💖🍪
2018 resolution #2 : structure.
Not boxes. Not rigidity. But focusing on cultivating the helpful habits and structures to keep my creative space free and wild.🛸🗺🌿
As @heatherintheforest has taught me, “only when the infinite has edges can we create.” ⚖️🗄💜
