Beauty. Truth. Goodness.

[To Inspire. Empower. Enrich.]

“poetry is pure transport. pure alteration. pure theft of your being without asking. in a matter of seconds. it is attentive. gluttonous in its ability to peel you from yourself. starving for what is most hidden. in you. it enters. and does not leave. once it arrives. it is a part of your lifetime. absolute.”

I have literally had people in varying degrees of discomfort and awe tell me that I have entered them and wrested something from them without their permission after a performance.

“To pray is to learn to believe in a transformation of self and world, which seems, empirically, impossible—as in “moving mountains” (11:23). What is unbelief but the despair, dictated by the dominant powers, that nothing can really change, a despair that renders revolutionary vision and practice impotent. The disciples are instructed to battle this impotence, this temptation to resignation, through prayer… Is not prayer the intensely personal struggle within each disciple, and among us collectively, to resist the despair and distractions that cause us to practice unbelief, to abandon or avoid the way of Jesus? And has not this demon, so embedded in our imperial culture, not kept us impotent, docile subjects of the status quo “since childhood” (9:21)?”

“Poets are born to be witnesses, but sometimes we forget that that also means witnessing our own lives in a way that is unflinching and often painful. Our truths are harder than most truths, because we have the tools to find and deconstruct them.”

“Consider that you radiate. At all times. Consider that what you’re feeling right now is rippling outward into a field of is-ness that anyone can dip their oar into. You are felt. You are heard. You are seen. If you were not here, the world would be different. Because of your presence, the universe is expanding.”

“Food doesn’t taste better or worse when documented by Instagram. Laughter is as genuine over Skype as it would be sharing a sofa. Pay attention. Take in nature, hold someone’s hand, read a book. But don’t ever apologize for snapping a photo of a sunrise after a hike, or blogging about the excitement of having a crush, or updating your goodreads account. All of these things are good and should be celebrated. Smile at strangers on the sidewalk and like your friends’ selfies. It’s all good for the human spirit.”
