Welcome, you powerful being.
Even though I may not know you personally, I know you are worthy of love. I know you are a gift to humanity. And I know you probably need a dedicated cheerleader, a loving advocate. I know you are me, and I am you. We are healing, growing, loving, falling down, getting back up again. We are a force that can change the world. We are who we have been waiting for.
In my dream we use challenges and adversity to choose love over fear, and clear action over confusion. We hold hands across nations, across religions, across divisions. We weave a web of acceptance, respect, love, forgiveness. We show up as ourselves, fully.
It’s time to bring the real you forward. Not who you think you are supposed to be or who you wish you were. There is nothing like unexpected situations and times of transition to become who you were meant to be.
Sound good to you? Then join in an Inner Revolution.

Don't give up; surrender
The other day I was talking to a friend when he asked me a question. I answered what I felt was true, and we moved on with our conversation. But later I reviewed my response to him and I realized: I’ve given up.
Now, giving up is different than surrendering, though sometimes you have to first give up to get to surrender.
Here’s what I mean.
Giving up comes from a sense of hopelessness, powerlessness, and despair. We give up when we feel paralyzed, overwhelmed, or stuck. Giving up often leads to apathy, frustration, or bitterness.
Surrendering is different. Surrender is a choice. You admit you don’t know, and let go of forcing or figuring it out with your mind. Surrender comes from honestly evaluating your choices and recognizing that while you don’t know what’s next, what you are doing is not working.
