inner work flows outward in service

“is an alchemical journey wherein one’s own inner healing and service to the world join together”

I decided to try this offered assignment this evening, as it leapt out at me.

1. Take a quiet moment to read the Heart of Shakti – even if you’ve read it before, read it again with new ears and an open spirit!  2. Choose a phrase or sentence that speaks to your heart and spirit.  3. Tell us why you’re drawn to that line, and how it lives within you (or perhaps how you’re cultivating it to live in you more fully)  4. Email your response to me!  Optional step 5: Also include an image that either harnesses that line, or just a beautiful picture of nature that you love. We’ll be putting the line you chose on that image to post on Facebook.

2. phrase above.

3. i’m drawn to this line first off because of the word alchemy. i think of alchemy as a magical process merging disparate things in order to produce something in their synergy, something that before wasn’t there or even thought of. also because i see inner healing as alchemical – to take pain, discomfort, uncertainty, chaos and from that create beauty, understanding, love, joy, faith is an alchemical act of power. it takes strength, focus, determined attention to do this. in this stage of my life, this is what i feel i am called to: to join my inner work with the service that i offer the world.

5.

“Never make your home a place. Make a home for yourself inside your own head. You’ll find what you need to furnish it – memory, friends you can trust, love of learning, and other such things. That way it will go with you wherever you journey.” ~ Tad Williams
