Streets of San Fransisco KnM 10/09

While having a delicious morning with some rad friends of mine, I was accused of falling in love, a lot, more than any other.  It was a shock to hear at first and after thinking about the accusation for 19 seconds i came clear. Out in the open. I admit it. I fall in love as much as I can, as often as possible. Seriously I do. 

The moment I see a nice leather bag, love. A smile from a stranger as I let them walk across the street, slowing down my car, making eye contact, a simple wave......oh yes, you guessed it, LOVE.  The brilliant conversations that makes it 'all' make sense, Love.  Watching the clouds form from an elephant to a T-Rex, Love. Singing in the shower, tunes made especially for my ears, Love. Talking to my papa and mom, Love. Meeting a random gent, laughing loudly in the streets, Love.

Why not? It is what I got. It is the absolute most delightful feeling and expression I have. It is boundless. Warm when I am cold. Savory and Sweet. The 'it' I speak of is my preference, and I have a choice.

Being it,

Happy Birthday John!

Imagine there's no Heaven 
It's easy if you try 
No hell below us 
Above us only sky 
Imagine all the people 
Living for today 

Imagine there's no countries 
It isn't hard to do 
Nothing to kill or die for 
And no religion too 
Imagine all the people 
Living life in peace 

You may say that I'm a dreamer 
But I'm not the only one 
I hope someday you'll join us 
And the world will be as one 

Imagine no possessions 
I wonder if you can 
No need for greed or hunger 
A brotherhood of man 
Imagine all the people 
Sharing all the world 

You may say that I'm a dreamer 
But I'm not the only one 
I hope someday you'll join us 
And the world will live as one

This door is to remain unlocked when building is occupied!

this sign is posted above or near most business doors around the world. It is a massive attempt to ensure the safety of all the consumers coming in and out of establishments.

i have seen this sign countless times in my life, countless times in a day even. what struck me today was this is a 'mantra' for our body, our life. Its a statement reminding us to keep the beingness of who we are open until we are official closed for business.

This door-     your body, mind

Is to remain unlocked-  open

When building is occupied- your still alive, awake and alert, yes?

I think the reason this sign means so much to me today is because of what is happening around us in the world today. The minds are caving in, and becoming closed! There are handfuls of cases in the past month of people choosing to close there business (their body) because of social embarrassment and feeling locked out from the world around them. 

I spent this last Sunday morning in dialogue with over 25 teenagers, discussing the reasoning's for 1) teenage bullying and 2) teenage suicide.  The conversation caused me to get Pissed, Angry, and then Inspired.

I was pissed for one main reason- these teens don't feel that there schools offer help, an outlet to talk, and a safe place to be themselves. I heard one young man "well there are resources for help, and hot line numbers, but this is something that the school's don't advertise."

That's when i became angry. Having a unsettling feeling that in some odd corner in a pile of other fliers and stuff, there might be a brochure that can save a life. Is this acceptable? Is this something that i want to fix? is this OK? good enough?

My deepest passion is youth! I have always been and always will be an advocate for teens and the lives they live. I am in constant awe of their brilliance, their strength, their struggles. And i choose to be a safe place for them to be themselves.  In some way I have become a hot line.

That thought created a deep sense of inspiration. These youth do not desire a day filled with bullying and being a victim to someones BS (belief system.) These youth desire a world that works for everyone. A world deeply rooted in compassion, inclusively, and authenticity.  A world and a life that remains unlocked .

Stand with me in knowing that we are for something and against nothing!

We have a grand chance to shift into a new gear as a human planet, by taking action for a healing! Let the safety of our children begin, do what you can, do what you will, knowing that the greatest gift in all of this is.........finally becoming more and more authentic as yourself!
