Autumnal portal

I got some news today that my dear father was in an accident. He got pretty banged up and needs some surgery. He says he'll be OK.

I felt all shook up inside, the kind of shakiness that happens when you feel out of control. It was good to experience that feeling again, and to feel the invitation to lose control.

Coming into the new season there is a softening. The heart wants to explore its own tender Self. And if it wants to come in the form of shakiness, it can. As long as I feel connected, that is all that matters. Connected and Real. Returning to a place of extra-ordinariness. And every part of my experience is a way into the most alive and conscious existence that is possible, right now.
