truth becomes louder and clearer than all the other voices.
moment everything becomes simple. Clarity emanates from center like a bright
light that finally illuminates the path. You may still not know what’s coming
up ahead but what you do know is that you’ll be able to respond perfectly and
with clarity when you get there. At long last, you are tapped in.
your inner voice, your own connection to truth, is the loudest voice it will
likely catalyze a process of elimination. Clarity let’s us know what is ‘yes’,
what resonates with our core, but just as fiercely she let’s us know what is ‘no’,
what doesn’t fit.
age of bombardment, inner clarity helps us sift through all the influences in
our lives that inform our days and offer input and advice.
takes only a moment to realize that you will always know what is best for you.
You may need external reminders but ultimately the more you trust yourself the
more you know that you can trust yourself. The path becomes clear when the
connection to self is clear.

is just so little time devoted to listening and to holding space for clarity to
emerge. Knowing and connection to soul have one thing in common: they rarely
emerge when we are busy and since busyness is the new norm people seem
increasingly confused, disconnected, and simply going through the motions of a
life that is not authentically their own.
address your confusion, you may seek out books, subscribe to email lists that
promise to help you find your purpose, and spend time soliciting advice from
friends and family. The only problem with this is that it simply adds to the
busyness and sustains this over-filled state of activity. It leaves so little
room for your inherent truth to surface.
said in my last post, clarity is inside you at all times, regardless of how
inaccessible it may feel, how disconnected you feel from it, or how confused
you currently are.
truth is actually inevitable—so much so that we run from it through our
distractions, our seeking, and our busyness. We fear that heeding the call that
wants to surface inside us will ultimately turn our entire life upside down. So
we stuff it down with food, try to shop it away, or stay glued to the Facebook
feed where we know we’re safe.
truth inside you is your soul—your essence—and it connects you to the fabric of
existence, to truth itself. Your soul is the thread that only you can bring to
the tapestry of the whole. You are encoded with a blueprint the same way the
oak tree is encoded in the acorn.

mirror and admit to yourself what you’ve been afraid to admit. It might be this
summer as you dance under the expansive star-lit sky at a music festival and
you remember with every cell of your being that you are that. It may be when
you lose your health and no longer have the energy to run—you’re brought
face-to-face with it. With the truth of who you are.

fulfillment that you seek. It’s right here. You are the treasure.
while we share in this divine essence, I believe that we’re all encoded with
nuanced particulars of the divine. The same way the beaver expresses a builder
ethos and the cat is an independent queen—you and I have our own place in the
ecosystem of life. It’s a place that we were born to fill just by being
ourselves. We don’t have to try to do anything special, buy the latest clothes,
or travel to the far reaches of the earth to find it. You are right here and so
