I just found out that my latest article went live on elephant journal . I started writing it six months ago--thought about ditching it all together. Funny how a piece on the power of words could give me such trouble. I'm still not sure it expresses what I have to express, but that's the thing about words....

I was in a car accident on Saturday--right before this article went live. Thankfully, i... Read more of this blog post »

Women Who Run With The Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estés
“Be wild; that is how to clear the river. The river does not flow in polluted, we manage that. The river does not dry up, we block it. If we want to allow it its freedom, we have to allow our ideational lives to be let loose, to stream, letting anything come, initially censoring nothing. That is creative life. It is made up of divine paradox. To create one must be willing to be stone stupid, to sit upon a throne on top of a jackass and spill rubies from one’s mouth. Then the river will flow, then we can stand in the stream of it raining down.”

“What is life truly like—once we strip away all of the story telling and anger and pain? Can we bring ourselves to say, “Thank you for everything; I have no complaint whatsoever”? This doesn’t mean that we should be grateful only because things could be worse (although they could). Nor does it mean that things couldn’t be better. It means, No matter what happens, PERFECT. No matter what happens, thank you!”
Stephanee Killen, Buddha Breaking Up: A Guide to Healing from Heartache & Liberating Your Awesomeness

“Our perception of reality is malleable. Everything is always shifting. We may not have the power to change an event, but we do have the power to change our perspective.”
Stephanee Killen, Buddha Breaking Up: A Guide to Healing from Heartache & Liberating Your Awesomeness

“When it comes to examining our relationships, and whether they are helping us to grow or keeping us stagnant, we may find ourselves suddenly terrified of the choices before us. In many cases, we begin to focus solely on the connections we have forged rather than the quality of those connections or what we may be transmitting via those connections.”

“Naturally, when things break down, as all things do, we get lost in the pieces—we get lost in trying to reshape them into something familiar. We want to put them back into a recognizable framework so that we can get to work again building that thing we’ve held so dearly in our minds. Wanting to create is not the problem. Wanting a framework for our lives is not the problem. It’s attachment to the pieces of that old frame that is the problem.”
Stephanee Killen, Buddha Breaking Up: A Guide to Healing from Heartache & Liberating Your Awesomeness

“You did not leave Crazytown for Boo-hooville. Boo-hooville is a layover. It is a temporary stop. It is the dismal Greyhound bus station in the first leg of your trip to Kauai. It is a place you must visit on your way to peace and calm. It is a rough stone that you will use to scrape away the old skin so that you can be made new again. And yes, that scraping hurts. And yes, you look terrible while it’s happening. Everything is dropping off, wrinkling, sagging, and flaking; it’s dull-colored. But underneath? On the other side of that? It’s beautiful.”
Stephanee Killen, Buddha Breaking Up: A Guide to Healing from Heartache & Liberating Your Awesomeness

“It’s probably long overdue for us to throw out what we think we know about love. Girls have grown up with too many fairy tale/date movies/romance bodice-rippers racing around in our heads—the warrior with his rippling muscles and the golden-maned damsel clinging to his breeches. The title is something like Savage Heat or Destiny’s Desire. This is the fairy tale world where men and women always orgasm at the same time or where the man wakes the sleeping princess with a kiss, or where the hero slays the dragon and rescues the damsel from a tower, or where, essentially, everyone lives happily ever after and no one writes what happens next.
What happens next is that reality sets in. The golden bubble bursts. There are bills to pay. Someone has to walk the dog and clean the cat litter box and go to the grocery store for milk.”

“But reality is erratic. Surprising. Elegant. We will never earn a respite from all of the things in our lives encouraging us to grow, pushing us to make difficult choices or to strengthen our resolve. There is always something demanding more of us—demanding more of our authentic selves. What is this authentic self? I believe it is the part of us that knows our true capabilities. It knows the desires of our heart, and the strength of our spirit—and life is going to keep offering us the opportunity to get it right (even if it just so happens to kill us in the meantime).”
