The war that rages within each of us might be from betrayals, family baggage, trauma or something such as ego. If our identity is fractured or not clearly defined or understood, we continually fight ourselves. The need for known security will fight all new experiences and acts of faith. Anger, perfectionism and addictions can all be expressions of the war within, as we rage against feelings of invisibility, inadequacy, powerlessness and self disgust. Sometimes the raging within is easier than actually trying to understand our pain or feel intense emotions such as shame or deep sadness.
Jesus was called the prince of peace.
What does this mean? For me it means Jesus aka God, is the originator of peace, and it is given freely and unconditionally to all who risk connection to him. Connection to a higher power will always be a risk because it requires us giving up ourselves to another. It feels like we walk into the unknown. The only way for supernatural encounters to feel secure is knowing the one who you are surrendering to. God is known by knowing his character which was exquisitely expressed in the walking, talking life of Jesus while he was on earth.
The Gospel of Luke show Jesus' love for the poor and downtrodden. He does an excellent job conveying the hope everyone can find in God's mercy but he also demonstrates how radical Jesus Christ and his Gospel message are. Being Catholic means that we are called to the same radical love. Do not be surprised if it leads to carrying your own cross.
Often it seems fear and insecurity can keep us stuck from taking risks and going to places of dependence on God. What is God asking you trust Him in today? What new depth is He calling you to today? Don’t be afraid. Trust Him and follow the peace, even into the unknowns. #safeplacehome#radicallove#newdepths#thankyoujesus#redemptivestory
A beautiful sentiment about radical love
Today at Prevention point we had a safer injection practices workshop for staff and people who use drugs. We learned about better practices to use while injecting drugs to prevent infections, to let veins rest, and to get into a better headspace to be successful. Did you know that HIV and HepC can be spread through cookers and water used for injecting, not just needles? I didn’t.
for we are all
deeply in need
of a little empathy.
love above everything else.
Morning to you all out there in IG &FB land. I just wanted to let yall know that I will be facilitating a workshop tom. If you ever had any questions about my process, what inspires me and who I am in person, come through and create with me. Space is limited so RSVP ASAP. 12:30 - 4:30pm See you then.
On Sat 10/19 I will be holding space in the healing room for @ppnycaction I'll also be leading a workshop on the cultural practice of #DiaDeLosMuertos#DayOfTheDead and how holding space for ancestral knowledge is #radicallove for the culture. This event is being held in Harlem- hit me up if you have any questions. .
Also taking some time today to share with you a special altar I made this yr for Dia de Los Muertos/Angelitos. I'll be sharing more on the process and answering those questions I got a week or so a go (it's been a little hectic on my end).
"Are you available?" This is a question the LORD is asking you, When will be the day you surrendered your heart completely to HIM?
Many answers are LORD, are you kidding me?
We struggled at first, but in the end, we need to surrendered our heart completely to the LORD.
Yes, I am available, LORD. Use me." Now, I finally understood what the LORD meant when HE asked this question, "Are you available?" But that HE was asking about my willingness to be used by HIM.
My wonderful coach @skoestner and I talked today about “burning bridges,” and how one reframe is that it’s actually about boundaries and justice.
When he really wanted to hurt and invalidate me, my emotionally abusive ex would tell me I was a bridge-burner who was looking for a fight, citing as evidence my efforts to report abusers. The truth was, he was often evading accountability for bad behavior. While I may have had intense PTSD triggers at times, I wasn’t wrong to try to file those reports and name abusers in my family, former workplaces, and even a yoga studio to keep other vulnerable people safe from harm.
I wasn’t wrong to tell a former boss and US Senator that he should be ashamed of confirming Kavanaugh. I wasn’t wrong to approach Mayor Hogsett more than once at City Market and ask for his help in filing a formal complaint against his chief of staff (he was very uncomfortable and shut both conversations down). All of this mattered so much more than keeping certain professional doors open or trying to seem spiritually enlightened or staying comfortable.
Some bridges need to be torched, y’all - whether for preserving ourselves, protecting others, or seeking justice. That is #RadicalLove. I have a lot of grace for people who take accountability and do whatever they can to repair. As a human who fucks up, I do this too. But there are some situations where a cancellation is appropriate - namely, when someone uses their power and influence to continue behaving badly.
And forgiveness is different from reconciliation. We can forgive someone and still enforce boundaries. Does that make sense?
I hope this helps. Especially in light of the Ellen and W thing, this felt important to share. It’s true individually and collectively.
P.S. I feel really uncomfortable quoting myself because I’m worried my subconscious picked this up from someone who’s already said it. If I’ve unintentionally plagiarized, please lmk!
TORNARE ALL' AMORE INIZIALE ❤💏
Ovviamente, non essendo ancora sposata, non ho esperienza su questo argomento, 😅perciò questo post è aperto a eventuali commenti costruttivi 😊
Però, credo che il successo di un matrimonio stabile e felice sia il non dimenticare il motivo per il quale si è scelta proprio quella persona accanto.
Tornare a quell' amore iniziale, ricordare il significato che ha la persona che si è scelta come compagno/a di vita;
Capire perché fra tutte si è scelta proprio lui/lei;
Ed è lo stesso rapporto con Dio.. perché ho scelto di appartenere a DIO? Perché ho deciso di amarlo?
Perché Lui è il mio primo e grande amore.
Non esiste noia, non esiste routine con Dio e non deve esistere nemmeno con il coniuge. La routine non è una scusa.
Perché l'amore vero fa sentire le farfalle nello stomaco anche dopo anni.
Stare alla presenza di Dio fa sentire un fuoco🔥 dentro , che cresce di giorno in giorno.
Perché il vero amore non si spegne, l'amore che viene da Dio cresce.
Perciò, in un momento buio bisogna tornare all' amore iniziale, ricordare il dono che Dio ha fatto attraverso la persona che ha stabilito come la promessa ed esserGli grati 🙏💍💏 #motivation#marriagegoals💍 #couplegoals#love#fire#radical#radicallove#promise#noroutine#victory#godspresence#firstlove#wedding
😭 This is so beautiful! Singer Sade's son, Izaak, completed his transition and thanked his mom and family for their unconditional support.
Studies have shown that having just one supportive adult can be a life-saving factor for trans youth. Let the young people in your life know they are perfect and fully accepted exactly as they are! 💓

🎶oh she’s sweet but a psycho, a little bit psycho, at night she’s screamin ‘i’m ma ma ma out my mind’🎶 sorry T @tianabatt, i know this is your song but i gotta deem this my theme song #2. it’s so liberating. how expressive and energetic it is, it’s like it releases me to full acceptance of every part of me. regardless of how “good” or “bad” i think those parts of me are, or especially how others may see or take them as. love every part of you because it’s YOU. and it always means something. and i think everyone can agree—fuck what people think of you, yeah? #LoveYourselfCompletely#Authenticity#RadicalLove#RadicallyLoveYourself
Have you ever had a season of life where it all falls apart and you’re forced to look at those things you’ve been avoiding or overlooking? Me, too. In those dark seasons, when rejoicing seems impossible to do, I try to rejoice in the growth, in the opportunity to see in a new way, and the change that’s going to come from it. I try to reframe it as God’s grace on my life He is willing to help me look at what I would love to avoid. #rejoicealways#safeplacehome#radicallove#grace#jesus

Rebel queen from the Caribbean takes the throne at Barnard Hall: “I Am Queen Mary,” the collaborative monument created by U.S. Virgin Islands’ multidisciplinary artist @lavaughn_belle and Copenhagen-based performance artist @jeannetteehlers that was originally commissioned for our show #RadicalLove, has taken up residence @barnardcollege on long-term loan.
The sculpture commemorates Mary Thomas, aka Queen Mary, one of the four female leaders of the 1878 Fireburn labor revolt in Frederiksted, St. Croix, the largest labor revolt in Danish colonial history. Thomas and the other three “queens” were imprisoned in Copenhagen—where a larger version of her monument made its debut at the West Indian Warehouse last year, on the centennial of the sale and transfer of the former Danish West Indies to the U.S.
Regal in her seated stance of resistance, Queen Mary is poised over a base of coral, imported from St. Croix in the Virgin Islands, where the stones were originally cut by enslaved Africans. “With this sculpture, we wanted to pay tribute to the act of revolt against the oppressive colonial system, then as well as now,” Ehlers said.
Fear is scary. .
It is only scary if we give power to it. Fear is real, but it is as real as the courage that you have inside of you.
What is your biggest fear right now? Fear of being alone in the world. Fear of unable to speak comfortably in front of clients or people you meet. Fear of not knowing. Fear of losing someone. .
Each time we fear, we give more power to someone or something else. That someone or something is feeding on your fear.
How do you overcome your fear? Here are some steps you can take right now to help yourself getting your power back.
1. Set up a boundary for yourself. What is ok for you to give away. What is your non-negotiable?
2. Become aware of our own behavior. noticed how you react and what comes through your mind when situation happen.
3. Name 3 characteristics you have that are unique to yourself and that feels true to yourself.
4. Recognize your current situation. Imagine having your best friend speaking to you right now. What would that best friend say about the situation you are in? Would your best friend react and feel the same way?
5. Stop beating yourself up for what you should have, could have and would have done. Instead focus on what can be done.
6. Make a bold move and let you fear be a source of guidance rather than your enemy.
Problems aren't a sign that something is wrong
Welcome to this beautiful day of changing.
Now we are held in the leathery and worn hands of autumn. Now the branches bare themselves. There is movement on the threshold as we harvest and discard. .
More than the call for gather and shed is the yearning for renewal. As grass, leaf land snake skins loosen and surrender to the ground, it's not the past that meets them in the underworld, but the vibration of regeneration itself.
The trouble that overwhelms the heart isn't the challenges we face, it's the internalized belief that problems mean we have something to fix, something is wrong and must be made right. To walk in medicine is to know that disharmony is simply harmony that's changing. It's not a harmony that seeks approval or permission, but simply wants to be heard and responded to.
Right now, place your feet on the earth until you feel your heart beating with hers. Let your breath wave in and our of you until you feel the hands of spirit at play.
From this place, call awareness to trouble - that thing you can't avoid, can't solve no matter what balm or poultice you apply. As you let it take up with you, notice what happens when you see it, understanding nothing is wrong, nothing is broken. Let yourself be awakened within the ache. Feel in your body that you don't have to warrior your way through this one. There's no answer to arrive at. .
Go deeper-however you can-right now. Go deeper into breath, deeper into sensation, deeper into what is happening, now.
Going deeper, possibility opens. Cellular and energetic renewal synthesize a more profound knowing. Shedding the anxious role of rescuer, you become Knower, the Cunning One. All of life shapeshifts with you into more complex patterns of love.
Today, the School of Wild officially opens for registration. This is a circle for those who seek to lead from wholeness and who wants to find out what magic they can weave when they don't leave essential parts on the shelf for fear of abandonment or rejection. There is an early bird rate for any woman who claims her space by Samhain, October 31.

One of my favorite pieces to replicate!
Seven Peaks for seven years of marriage for my soon to be cousin-in-law!
my girl, dancing with the light, in a space that is broken and derelict, but holds so much promise of hope. at last week’s @trigaventures conference i heard someone say, “radical communities make radical decisions seem normal.” and i’m so grateful that we are surrounded by people who are willing to take the path less travelled in order to bring hope to their communities. the ‘radical-ness’ looks different in each life - tackling tough work projects which they know will provide opportunities for others. moving themselves and their families across the world because God has called them. sticking it out in a space God has called them to, when even the ones closest start questioning the wisdom of it. choosing to feel pain so that a child does that have to carry their pain alone. loving, caring, praying, working, cooking, cleaning, playing, teaching... thankful for all the radical people in my life.
Everything that comes to you in life is your teacher. Pay attention, lean into the lessons, learn quickly and no matter what it is you believe in, keep looking forward in faith.
Remember you are a Divine Being. An all-powerful Creator. Within you dwells the infinite wisdom of the ages and the sacred creative force of All that is, will be and ever was. ❤️ #imcominghome#powerful#empowerment
What do you do when overwhelming sadness envelops you? When there's no one around? No one to call.
Maybe you pick up a pen? Maybe you sit with it in your hand as if it's a magic wand that unlocks the tears to flow?
Maybe you start to realize that the pain you feel is not arising to make you sad. You start remembering that to get to the place you belong, you need to leave behind the place where you don't.
Maybe you even begin to wonder if the sadness is just a worthless souvenir, and you realize that it's just time to throw it out.
To see reality the most clearly is not to have many beliefs about it. Beliefs are walls, not doors. If we open to the experience, we can catch glimpses of vast cosmic workings, even when you're counting cars in traffic.
Our curiosity and powers of observation will show us where to look in our own lives.
