“When you dream of a wild animal, you are touching the part of yourself that can never be domesticated. The animal heart lives according to an ancient set of laws. She doesn’t care about politics and politeness and never takes more than she should. She reminds you of your nobility, your physical magnificence, and the unselfconscious power of instinct. The animal heart sees clearly what the intellect cannot because it follows the innate knowing of the earth itself. . The animal heart lives behind logic, below reason, underneath the armour of objectivity. She has lived longer than any of us can remember because it was from her belly that we were born. Half-sighted as we are, we forget and deny her, building our platforms on what we think is her grave. But she is far from dead. She stays hidden not because she is timid, but because she is wise. And if she comes out to greet you, know that you are trustworthy of her approach.” . Excerpt From Belonging: Remembering Ourselves Home by Toko-pa Turner (belongingbook.com) .

adenamarieatkins. When me and my sister-cousin @megan.paris.142 scattered Grandma’s ashe

When me and my sister-cousin @megan.paris.142 scattered Grandma’s ashes in Gualala in May, 2017 it was the first time I’d been back in half my life. // // It helps to go back. // During that trip I sensed into things I cannot yet articulate. I went to the river to scatter the rest of her ashes alone. While there, I felt a sense of that I’ve never felt before or since. The belonging was not good or bad. It did not mean anything I could make sense of (should I move here, I wondered. No). // // Looking back, the best I can describe it is a bodily sense that my bones do not belong to me. And that, when I’m done with them, they go back to the river. // I put a stone in my pocket before I left that place. // During that same trip, I visited a park I went to every summer to take classes with @gualalaarts. The last summer I did that, there was a teacher mixup and I kind of took over the drama class. It was the first and only drama class I took. I was 13 years old. Because I’m a slow learner, I had not yet figured out that I was supposed to be detached and pretty and entirely focused on my appearance. I took charge and decided to mount a musical. I starred in it too, no one else was willing. // It was PROFOUNDLY terrible. I am proud of how terrible it was and want to tell you all about it. // Instead, I will tell you that it took place on a stage that redwoods grew through. And that on my trip back to this stage I felt the companionship of these redwoods like enormous creative collaborators. I knew this was how I was meant to feel in community. // // So I put some needles in my pocket. And I tinctured them. With the river stone. // I’m not yet ready for this medicine. But at least now it is ready for me.

We all have a gifts to offer the world. Those feelings or ideas that live in our souls, in our intuitions. We need to allow ourselves the opportunity to share them with the world. To create the miracles and #adaywelllived.

@thecommonplacepdx Being a follower of Jesus does not mean that you have everything together. It actually means that you are able to say that you don’t have everything together and that you need help and that we are needing saving from our self! It’s not about being a title or known by others.. it’s about following Jesus and understanding that the struggle is real. Struggle together and love through the hardships! #jesusatthecenter #worship #youareloved

I love this place. Where the iridescent sea and rapidly transforming clouds are in constant flux. Where the veil between the worlds feels thin and where at any moment I could suddenly evaporate from this illusion and into the rapture of the elysium. 💫🦋🌬 : : #elysium #rapture #thegreatturning #southhams #sealight #sea #light #irridescant #ephemeral #illusion #betweentheveils #theveils #thegreatrevealing #seaspirit #clouds #cloudscapes #beyond #wildsoul #transforming #blissful #ancientland #walkingtheland #southwestcoast #devoncliffs #dreamingoutloud #dreaming #anenchantedlife #enchantedlands #belonging #place

ALIVE — Baptism doesn’t symbolize bad people becoming good, but dead people becoming alive in Christ. — This morning, Robert and his fiancée Savanna both publicly declared finding Life in Christ. He said, “I want to express how He’s changed me.” Praise God! 🙌🏻

“Belonging so fully to yourself that you're willing to stand alone is a wilderness -- an untamed, unpredictable place of solitude and searching. It is a place as dangerous as it is breathtaking, a place as sought after as it is feared. The wilderness can often feel unholy because we can't control it, or what people think about our choice of whether to venture into that vastness or not. But it turns out to be the place of true belonging, and it's the bravest and most sacred place you will ever stand.” Braving the Wilderness, Brené Brown 👈🏻This woman. 👆🏻That book.

DISAPPOINTMENT — When was the last time you prayed for something and the answer was no? — Even when God says no, it’s important we don’t get stuck. He sees the bigger picture and has better for us!

To, My adolescent self I was driving past my school the other day and I couldn’t help but stop the car on a side and look at the building for a while, before getting back on the road. The vibe I got was a weird mix of feelings of comfort, stability, loss, fun, and anxiety. Those 5 minutes brought back enough memories that I wanted to go back in time, wake up as a kid, wear that stupid white uniform and board the school bus, all over again. Life was definitely much stable back then. Easier even. But, it wasn’t long before reality hit me again and I was back in the driver seat of my car, looking at the building. The shades of the walls were dimmer than I remember, the paint wearing off year after year. There were 2 new blocks, a much better ground, and a canteen as well. So much had changed, yet everything was the same. Sitting there recalling the good old days, I wondered whether I am actually living the life I had dreamt of when I was day-dreaming in one of those boring lectures, picturing how things would be 10 years down the line. I realized I wasn’t there yet, but I certainly was well on the way. Still, I miss being a kid. Despite a permanent job, life isn’t adventurous anymore. Unstable even. It lacks the willingness to experiment.

Mark 12:41-44 . . He sat down opposite the treasury, and watched the crowd putting money into the treasury. Many rich people put in large sums. A poor widow cane and put in two small cooper coins, which are worth a penny. The he called his disciples and said to them, ‘Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the treasury. For all of them have contributed out of their abundance; but she out of her poverty had put in everything she had, all she had to live on.’ . . {BELONGing} to the church through gifts. . . #collegestation #aggieumc #belonging #umc #tithe #renewing #thisishome
