It’s a fine time, with a change of season opening — that “in-between seasons” season — to check in with the Divine Spark, the inner flame, the vision-seeds germinating under the surface, wanting to be showered with nourishment and attention.
It’s always a fine time to stir heart and creativity with those transformative questions, affirmative inquiry … “loving the questions themselves” as the wise poet, Rilke, wrote in his letters to a young poet.
Good questions make a big difference in what gets stirred alive, what embers get fanned into flame (fear, or love and creativity and inspiration?).
What has heart, joy and meaning? What really stirs your heart — mine and yours? As the U.S. actor, producer, and comedian Will Smith asks in his video message, “Who feeds your flame?” … and what feeds your (our) flame?
With days and weeks that seem to speed by, filled with the usual to-do’s, an occasional (or regular) check in helps to ensure that what really and truly matters to us, what we really and truly value, doesn’t get sidelined in favor of the proverbial Squeakiest Wheel or habitual to-do’s or other peoples’ priorities and urgency (those M-Field “tractor beams”).
What feeds the flame, and how might it best be tended amidst the busyness?

Thank you, Sue. Yes, a slow transition from Winter to Spring, so say the more reliable weather forecasters, and that’s okay with me (though likely more of a challenge for the orchard folks). Hope you’re well, too, Sue. 🙂 xoxo

A few lessons I’ve learned: to surround myself with those who feed my flame, be sure and feed my own flame, do the things that feed my flame, AND also, be someone who feeds the flames of others. Thanks, Jamie for feeding the flames! 💜

Yes! 🙂 Reciprocity and flow keep the flame-tending fires lit and moving in, through, and between us. Beautiful. Many thanks, Cheryl.💜
