A collection of all of the random things I loved on the internet in the previous week, and why you might love them, too. Or at least crush on them.
- No more excuses for not writing! Okay, excuses are allowed to be voiced but writing will happen anyway, thanks to this great debut vlog from Jennifer Blanchard of Procrastinating Writers.
Because of the beautiful synchronicity of life and the power of the interwebs, I have been led to two expressions of Divine love and healing in as many days.
- One, a woman named Amma who is so connected to God and Eternity that she spends her days hugging it out with people as well as creating positive change with very powerful intention. It’s the kind of intention that moves smoothly from idea to action to result that we attribute to miracle workers and saints. She says:
A one word solution to all the problems the world is facing today is ‘compassion.’
- Another, Hiro Boga, beautifully expresses the struggle I have with living joyfully in a world of tragedy:
But each bead of blood in my heart knows wholeness too. I can no longer gather up the pain of the world and hold it inside my belly. It cannot be healed there—it can only damage that inner shoreline, bring death to that living sea. I am responsible for keeping my inner world healthy and whole. The quality of my presence–the peace or conflict in my heart–is what I bring to this gathering. How can I live outside the house of wholeness and join in the work of blessing?

Have a madly marvelous week!
