    a lot of people inspire me but the one that inspires me the most is Billie Eilish, she came from nothing and went through a whole lot of trauma while she was up and becoming and she got through it. she was in an abusive relationship while having to deal with being a teenager and just happened to also be famous amongst all the other shit, and has remained humble and caring and thats something i aspire to be

    A self-proclaimed Bible Nerd, Dr Tim Mackie. His dedication to studying this inspired literature and communicating his findings in his own delightful style speaks directly to my very core.

    So many people.

    My partner, for creating her first event, facing her fears and trying to build her dreams. My uncle for leaving behind “the matrix” (his words) and living on the edge of a cliff in Mexico to surf all day. A VP at Nvidia who’s decade long pursuit is paying off and positioning him perfectly for an uncertain future. A friend that is finding joy in dating after a messy divorce. Another friend that is actively experimenting in his life to get rid of tension. All of you, for showing up here every day and finding ways to choose the life you want.

    Yesterday, and completely unexpected, my dear friend and me, we passed by a tiny little shop filled with Japanese goods in the middle of a crowded street in a big city in Germany. When we entered the shop, we entered a world of beauty, kindness and truth. Not more than may be 25 square meters. Colored bowls of porcelain, tiny sets of tea cups each designed differently; tiny light-sounding bells built like a classical temple bell; a calendar print, designed like a scroll picture of 12 different Calligraphies given by 12 different Roshi leading a Temple in Japan; but what was most amazing: in the backyard, there was a tiny little garden, which we were allowed to enter, and in it, the owner, who seems to be a highly sensitive carpenter, had built a most beautiful tea house in old Japanese manner. The whole place was filled with the atmosphere of the beauty and care and sense for beauty in the couple who run it. They were not present but their kind and even sensitive daughter was. One could sense through that the owners would meditate, which their daughter confirmed when I dared to ask. Each piece was chosen with care, even old wooden Miso cups with lid, beautifully and designed by hand with tender motives could be purchased which I have never seen before, and even to a reasonable price. So beautiful and touching, and inspiring. You could sense the depth of and love for Japanese culture, and honesty, and It opened our minds and hearts. It was a gift of sorts and very joyful. Thank you dearly to the owners and all related artists and kindred hearts for this beautiful experience and shared time all together.

      My son is currently studying Japanese – he had in the past but has picked it up again. I agree with Joseph, your written words were so descriptive it was easy to picture in one’s mind.

    Speaker and author Kimberlee Yolanda Williams, author of “Dear White Woman, Please Come Home: Hand Me Your Bias, and I’ll Show You Our Connection.” I just heard her speak at a conference, reading some of the letters from the book. So, so powerful and important I plan to buy the book, read it, then put it in one of the little free libraries in my community to pass it on. (I got that idea from someone else and am going to start doing it with certain books.) is her website.
    Other reading:
    yung pueblo, “clarity & connection.”
    James Crews, “Kindness Will Save the World: Stories of Compassion and Connection.”
    Rolf Gates and Katrina Kenison, “Meditations from the Mat.”

    Though there is a lot of controversy swirling about her, right now in this moment Doja cat is inspiring me. I feel like she is in a space where she is allowed to explore who she is with the support of her inner community and a very large fanbase. It is inspiring me to gain the confidence to try to explore who I am with the hopes that by discovering who I am and standing on it that I will be able to build a solid platform to start constructing my own dreams. I know how I want to reach my successes and what it looks like for me but I know that there will be life challenges that will try to ruin the woman I have already become. Doja is inspiring me to take a chance on my life and go after what I desire truly. I also really recommend that if you are reading this and are open to new age female rap, that you listen to her album Scarlet.

      Good morning! How I love your line ” By discovering who I am and standing on it I will be able to build a solid plataform”. Yes!! One thing that comes to mind is the powerful building code in places where earthquakes are possible, that they might also be able to move witht the hard movement of the earth so they don’t crumble to the ground because they are solid but they move with the movement in order to stand firm. Blessings on your journey.

    Right now, my family is inspiring me. Imagining a moment that we could gather after a year brings me more energy to put more effort in my studying. Every time I send my mom projects that I successfully accomplished at school, even though she doesn’t understand what it is. However, her kind words raise more energy in my mind. I love my dear family.

    Anyone who puts in the time to help lift others, who engage with a system that appears monolithic, and who do this day after day with little reward. May they find deep rest.

    The life force within me. It has inspired me to get a permit to cut fence/corral poles from the Forest Service. Called them in June. In August the areas of lodge pole pines needing to be thinned were chosen by forest personnel, I completed they paperwork and was taken to the spot allotted to me. Today a good friend Randy and I are going to cut the first load. He is 20 years my junior and I am inspired that my 66 year old vessel still feels up to it. We have permits to cut 300, 150 a piece. Hoping to get 100 a load. By this evening we will find out how many trips it will take.
