Here are your fresh Love & Inspirations for the week ahead:
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has”. – Margaret Mead
2) Book I’m Reading
- Waking up: A guide to Spirituality without Religion – Sam Harris
This New York Times bestseller is an easy-to-read, insightful and engaging guide to meditation as a rational practice that is informed by neuroscience and psychology.
3) Practice I’m getting back into:
- Morning Pages, from the Artist’s Way – Jules Cameron
I’ve been a fairly consistent journal writer throughout my life, and often think of my relationship to pen on paper as my most trusted therapist. It feels really good, cathartic, insightful and space-making to get back into this as a daily practice. Join me!
Morning Pages, known as “the bedrock tool of a creative recovery” are three pages of longhand, stream of consciousness writing,
done first thing in the morning. *There is no wrong way to do Morning Pages*– they are not high art. They are not even “writing.”
They are about anything and everything that crosses your mind– and they are for your eyes only. Morning Pages provoke, clarify, comfort, cajole, prioritise and synchronise the day at hand. Do not over-think Morning Pages: just put three pages of anything on the page…and then do three more pages tomorrow.”
4) Music I adore:
- Fatoumata Diawara – Fatou – 2011
Grammy-nominated for best world music album. i LOVE this album and have listened hundreds of times at least. You’ll love it.
5) Movement that’s Inspiring me:
Global Climate Strike – Sept 20-27th – Greta Thunberg’s inspired #climatestrike,#fridaysforfuture
I am experiencing a full body “YES!!!!” to this movement, and so grateful to everyone who is taking a stand, and to all those people like you and I who are becoming more and more open and curious about our own carbon footprint and personal responsibility, and what actual life changes we can adopt to help #bethechange.
This is an incredible opportunity for collective evolution to support the common dream.
6 ideas we can consider to support climate action:
1) Eat less Meat
2) Walk rather than drive
3) Avoid single-use plastics
4) Plant more trees 🌱
5) Make a stand – Share how important this is with local businesses and change-makers
6) Spend more time in wonder, awe, curiosity, and gratitude, remembering that we as individuals and as a collective and completely interconnect and interdependent
