Make no mistake - you belong here.
You are a part of life’s tapestry
you are a thread, you are a color
you are vibrating
you are pulsating
and when you are struck by resonance
make no mistake
you are enhancing the strength of the collective dream
you are giving your attention to the world we are birthing
you are expressing the love from the universal mother
crying out to all her children
telling them — there is enough breastmilk and tit for them
we can suck the cosmic waters of creation all we want
they can never go dry
only our connection once was parched
only our connection
the celestial womb from which we emerged
is as juicy as ever
for you to claim yourself
and dive deep into connection
Notice what resonates with you.
Notice the artists, the painters, the musicians, the song carriers, the bridge builders and world weavers that call to your heart. Notice the people and the places that magnetize your attention like a bee to a flower.
These are your people. Make no mistake — you belong with them. You are part of that tribe. The tribe you long to be included in; you too belong to them. Where would the musician be if it weren’t for her fans who dance at every show? Would the painter paint if not for the patron of his art?
Your ability to witness gives magic.
Your ability to receive beauty sends it to the world from your eyes. People need to be seen, to be heard, and to be known in the hearts and minds of their peers.
So play your part. Sing your song. Dance your dance. And respond to the call that you hear. Respond to the voice in your channel, the one that tells you to create, to play, to be magic.
Allow your impulses to unfurl into your active reality.
And if, upon unfurling, you find the wind too harsh, the ground too rocky, that living life itself is too exposing to your soul: then good. You’re on to something. Keep growing the loving edge, expanding your sensory awareness with each breath.
Don’t be afraid if you feel everything. Let the ocean in, let the waves of emotion tear you down, tear by salty tear. Be seen in your crumbling majesty of rocky coastline. The edge—where you fall apart and become something you weren’t before—the edge contains all possibility for your personal evolution.
The edge is your place of power.
So when something strikes you — when you feel the beauty of the earth calling your name — release your response. Share how it makes you feel. Sing a song of praise and joy. This is how your tribe knows you, this is how you allow yourself to be seen, how you allow yourself to become a pulsing green dot on the radar of life.
You must to find out who you are inside first.
Let your insides come out, continuously, over and over, every day, every breath, keeping the energy current through recursive action, maintaining your connection to your soul and your source as you grow brighter and brighter with all the electrifying energy you’re generating.
To be seen, to be known, to be connected to another: this is to belong.
Allow yourself to feel the context of love from which you emerged as your baseline of existence, connecting you to everything which strikes your soul.
And if you still find yourself questioning if you belong here, questioning if you are worthy of the people you surround yourself with: drop it already! You are enough.
You belong here, you belong here, you belong here. Make no mistake.
