Words of Work in the World

On this page (see links below), you will find words all about the work of life, from vocation to dreaming the world into being . . .

Almost as long as I can remember, I’ve tried to figure out my vocational purpose. I remember as a young teenager declaring, “I want to speak for what I believe in! But I don’t know what that is!” Several decades, degrees, and careers later, I’m still discovering new layers of direction, purpose, and creativity—but now I’m clear what I believe in.

What I believe

I believe in the Earth, in cycles of inter-being and interconnectedness, in the wild awe of nature, in the cosmic cycles and space beyond time, the goodness of humanity at its best, and the oceans of compassion and far-reaching heart-wisdom that is the highest potential of (and deepest heart seed) in true nature of each of us. I believe that you are deeply loved (yes, you!) and that we all are. And I believe in kindness. And integrity. And bravery. And that it is only ignorance and a false belief in a solid, separate self that causes such fear and drives the deluded to harm themselves and others, and that fear is truly the loneliest emotion only looking for a friend. And I believe in the poetry of life lived and in the power of spoken words spoken soulfully! And I believe in the stars, and I believe in whales and in plankton and in mossy green trees, and in beauty, oh so much beauty. And I believe that we live in dire times, and yet it is truly still possible that humanity can get it together in time.

An Experiment and a Wish

This blog is an experiment in giving words to my heart. Words of Work. Words of nourishment, focus, purpose, direction, and upliftment.

A Wish: May these words inspire your words too!
