From the Introduction of the book

“We live in challenging times. In extraordinary times — and during an evolutionary time in which we are being requested to step forward with Expanded Love and Generous Hearts. This world — that we believe in — asks us to participate in designing our future. To design our life with a desire to lift each other up in hope and in possibility.

Citizens around the globe, we’re invited to express Divine Love, to bring to light our deepest secret — “we’re all really butterflies, waiting to emerge from our transformational chrysalis.”

All our charge has ever been — is to Love.”

The Grace of Redefining Loveis a book about expanding life to include everything. I believe there are four truths everyone is born with:

You are loved, you are safe, you are enough, and YOU MATTER! Are we ready for the conversation?

Ms. Angelou would often say “you’ve been paid for.”

“Dr. Maya Angelou (April 4, 1928-May 28, 2014) led a prolific life. As a singer, dancer, activist, poet and writer, she inspired generations with lyrical modern African-American thought that pushed boundaries. Best known for her autobiography I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings(Random House), she gave people the freedom to think about their history in a way they never had before.”

Consciously Losing Control of Your Life

What are we truly capable of?

What would happen if we consciously chose to let go — to stop trying to control people, places, and things? I propose, ownership of our lives.

What if our perspective of business dealings and the modeling of our personal lives shifted from controlling to releasing? Focused on what we have to share with each other instead of taking from each other — imagine what we could accomplish. I bet, pretty big things.

Taught to go out and grab life by the horns, we have learned to be aggressive. Aggression, given the state of affairs in our world according to news headlines, health concerns, and continued exclusivity have served us, in my opinion — not so well.

Would taking charge of our thoughts and emotions offer a higher ROI? I would rather spend my effort and my time finding out that answer by working on opening my heart instead of controlling situations and other unforeseen forces.

For me, taking charge, it’s truest sense — is showing up. Showing up in our collective space with our personal space —both vulnerable and authentic. Vulnerability and authenticity does not imply weakness. It is inclusive of all our strength and dedicated attention on our own well-being, with genuine concern and care for the business at hand —the task — and of each other’s well-being.

It takes courage to show up as ourselves. Stephen Hawking, world renowned theoretical physicist has said that aggression would be the downfall of civilization. I certainly concur — but advocate, that we can change it by encouraging each other’s possibility while cultivating our own self worth.

In my book The Grace of Redefining Love, I suggest that we are each other’s motivation for possibility.

“Aggression insists on oppressive limitation so we can feel safe. None of it is real, none of it is true, and none of it is lasting. Authentic motivation comes from and through each others heart center. One of the most empowering realizations we can make is this. By encouraging each other’s possibility, we encourage our own.”

—excerpt from The Grace of Redefining Love.

Consciously choosing to lose control of our life means stepping into a situation that, could be one of crisis, yes, but more often than not, means stepping into our authentic selves. It means consistently returning, over and over again, to our heart center. Returning to a state of calm —now scientifically proven to lower blood pressure and expand our thinking —therefore, allowing us to be more effective.

Developing a personal practice for showing up can give us a fluid form to live by — to recode our lives so-to-speak. Mine calms me. It grounds me in the morning with an integrity of creating good.

My personal practice begins in the first 30 minutes upon waking. This is what really keeps me living on point for the day.

My practice consists of getting up and stretching. Then I may read a page or two of poetry or a verse from A Course in Miracles, or something else that promotes peace and well-being. Ready to enter the world I recite this mantra: Let me send love outward for miles — let me leave love wherever I place my feet. 

That’s how I like to roll.

We have so much to gain by learning to dance through life instead of controlling it. Feeling safe enough to include others in our creations engages empathy and compassion. Asking what it is they wish to build can only expedite our best possible probabilities. There really is enough to go around.

Namaste.

Service

HumanityWe think of surrender as weak and release as defeating, but this is powerful work. An experienced singer knows to hit the high note they must release the muscles in their throat. Forgiving releases our judgment muscles.

 

Forgiving becomes a practice that trains our mind to support our spirit. The ultimate goal and vision of our spirit is always to serve humanity.
