Helping Others Rise

Scroll down ↓

Step into life. Engage on a level that strips illusion.

See so clearly the possibility beyond the haze.

Breath it in. Live it out.

Long enough for its essence to bind your DNA.

It becomes you. A vein opens.

Then you transmit.

Pure. Unadulterated. Jazz.

You cannot create change in others.

Until you embody the truth you seek to inspire.

Transcendent. Tethers on the dock.

Even then, you don’t deem.

You feel. You live.

You channel.

You radiate light.

You hold the door open.

We fly. You and I.

    I love this idea. This is the real meaning of abundance. That if we work with one another we can create so much more. And that happens precisely because we are each fully ourselves.
    But don’t you mean ‘A vein opens’ rather than ‘A vain opens’? If I am wrong please tell me what vain means in this context.

      Hey Mags – Yep, caught that typo just after I hit publish. Ain’t that always the way it works, lol!

    A’yup. So lovely. Sharing…

    I find as I practice embodying the truth (gulp & oy) & move progressively along (can you say hiccupy?), I don’t work less to change the world and more to just open the door to truth in myself. And when I walk through that door (or let what’s on the other side flood me), change happens (& the more folks tend to walk thru that door with me). Change occurs. No more making change happen or changing myself. What really needs changing is my living so something already real & true & alive comes thru.

    A wild n woolly thing when your yoga matt’s your work/biz as it is for me, but aside from living this devotedly with my family, I can’t think of a better place to practice.

    Thanks Jonathan. A special kind of sweet.

  3. Wow. Exactly what I need to read at this moment. Thank you, thank you.

  4. Beautiful Jonathan.

    First you work to become whole, then you work to share your whole self with others. 🙂

    Thanks, Jonathan. “Pure. Unadulterated. Jazz.” leaves me thinking about helping others with what comes to me in the moment and not over thinking it.

    Love love love this. I’m printing it. The message is so important – especially “Breath it in. Live it out. Long enough for its essence to bind your DNA.” SO important to know the power we possess when we embody the change we wish to make, within and without! xx

  7. This was so unbelievably right on time and powerful… AWESOME.

    “You cannot create change in others.

    Until you embody the truth you seek to inspire.”

    Thanks. For reminding us how it’s done.

    Sounds like you’ve been channeling a bit of Danielle LaPorte’s poetry – and sounds wonderful!

    First become the change you want in others…I love this.

    Simple and neatly done.

    Radiate light, perfectly powerful and encompasses much more than on the surface. Love this Jonathan, on so many levels.
