“Lighthouses don’t go running all over an island looking for boats to save; they just stand there shining.”
– Anne Lamott
Spent an amazing day exploring and hiking at Duke Farms in New Jersey. Also channeled my inner goddess along the way.
The universe keeps speaking on my little journey, and I keep listening.
“I hope some day to meet God, because I want to thank Him for the flowers.”

It almost looks as if the flowers are leaning in for the selfie… #SpringInNYC
Another piece of me died the other day. I realized that many of the “spiritual” things I have chosen to believe existed have never really been proven. Not by science, but more importantly, not even by myself. Psychic abilities, spirit guides, reincarnation, extraterrestrial communication, soul contracts, multi-dimensional realities, etc, etc – I spent my entire life believing in these things and defending them to others without ever really having any of my own proof or personal experience.
Ever since I was a kid this world was never enough for me. Always needing more, always searching for more. And now, TROLOLOL, the joke was on me because apparently my real life mission was to accept that this is all there is and to find the beauty and magic in it. It took me half my life to discover my real mission, and I suppose the rest of my life to implement it. Who knows, maybe once I surrender to what already is and find my peace with it, the other things I’ve been searching for will just open themselves naturally to me. Or maybe it wont even matter anymore whether or not they are true.
“I’m convinced that I come from a place where there is no concept of ‘earning a living’. All beings just exist and ‘be’ in peace. Earth is the only planet where we have to ‘pay’ to survive. I have a hard time fitting in.
People say ‘do what you like’, I like to just be and not do.”

More interesting than ordering Chinese take-out and watching Netflix in my pajamas? I’m intrigued…
This melody kind of just came out while I was meditating so i decided to record it.
Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
“If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine; it is lethal.”
– Paulo Coelho
I don’t know why they call it ‘common sense.’ It doesn’t seem to be common at all.
“You live like this, sheltered, in a delicate world, and you believe you are living. Then you read a book… or you take a trip… and you discover that you are not living, that you are hibernating. The symptoms of hibernating are easily detectable: first, restlessness. The second symptom (when hibernating becomes dangerous and might degenerate into death): absence of pleasure. That is all. It appears like an innocuous illness. Monotony, boredom, death. Millions live like this (or die like this) without knowing it. They work in offices. They drive a car. They picnic with their families. They raise children. And then some shock treatment takes place, a person, a book, a song, and it awakens them and saves them from death. Some never awaken.”
