“We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.”- Paulo Coelho
I talk endlessly about the importance of changing consciousness. In my books. Here on the blog.
The mission of the foundation I started to honor my freedom-loving Taz is the same. We want to amend how the world thinks, what we humans believe ourselves to be.
The chief belief (hey, that rhymes) upon which our foundations rest is that we are separate.
But how do you divide infinity?
We so often feel lonely when, at every moment, we are surrounded by friends—the moon, the sun, the trees, the fauna. Yesterday, a wonderful Native American elder told the story of being in Toronto, feeling out of sorts. She walked out onto the balcony of the high rise where she was staying and one of her brothers swooped in to rest upon a nearby chair. Brother Hawk stared into her eyes and listened intently as she shared her burdens before finally flying off. Another guy told the story of a black phoebe coming to sit with him while he sat with his dying dog.
I’m telling you, guys, we are not separate. And we can never be alone…except in our erroneous thinking which we are unraveling, right?
And speaking of not being alone, I’m throwing a Pop-up Possibility Posse next week with East West Bookshop of Seattle. It’s on Zoom and proceeds go to the Taz Grout 222 Foundation. You can join the party by clicking here:
And lastly, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this video. #222 Forever
