Flash Mob Christmas Caroling

On December 23rd, a One Love Alliance multi-generational mob of merriment filled the streets of downtown Tucson with love and cheer. Channel 4 came along for the ride and ran a clip on Christmas Day.

Thanks to everyone who turned out, with smiles ,open hearts, playfulness and even with bells on! I loved the spontaneous spirit, surprised looks on faces of unsuspecting public spectators and the ripple of joy that moved through us all!

Community celebration. What the world needs now is love, sweet love. Sing it in the streets, sing it from the mountaintops!

(Watch the clip here or on our website, and stay tuned for our next magical mob adventure)
In Gratitude, G

Unconditional Love 101-A One Love Nugget

Feel your heart. Is it open?
When you feel angry, when you are hurting, even when you feel disconnected, you can open as love.
Choose Love.

Especially when you are about to flip your lid, or react...
Open your heart.

Love like a child.
Sit like a Buddha.
Be Love.

The Palm of Grace- A One Love Nugget

This One Love Nugget dropped in during savasana after an auspiciously intense class with dear teacher, Mira (check out her site), at my all time fave yoga studio, Yoga Oasis (check them out too!)

Have you ever felt immense gratitude for feeling held right in the palm of grace, as if cupped gently by the Universe itself? Then life hiccups and suddenly, a drop down, far from the sanctuary of the divine embrace.

Today, I realized we are the yoyo, and the Divine is playing with us. Fall after fall, we are headed right back into the Source. Falling down and reeling back again and again. Humbling. Free Falling. And yet we are held, all along.

We are the golden thread of life...the current of Grace itself.

I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. So I did both.

All Love, G

Why Tolerate? Surrender. A One Love Nugget

This nugget dropped in on my desert run this morning.

Feel the difference between what you accept and what you tolerate. Where have you surrendered and where have you resigned?

I can accept that which I cannot change and surrender to my Source. I might even say "Dear Universe, I surrender. Please support me in experiencing a shift."
I can tolerate that which I am too scared, or too conditioned (habituated), too rebellious (cynical) or too multidimensionally lazy to change.

In toleration and resignation, my heart tightens. I suffer.
In acceptance and surrender, I soften. My heart melts open, even through pain, even through challenging circumstances.

Feel the difference. What do you choose?

All Love,

People before things.

Ready? Go! Love up your peeps.
I will do the same.
Shanti Om, G

Past Event | Debrief
Our Thanks-N-Giving Community Service Events were a heart warming, powerful experience. Offering a hand, positive energy and loving presence at Casa Maria Soup Kitchen was a gift to all those who gave and received! My thanks to everyone who came out, volunteered time and made generous donations of clothing and household items. It was an extremely sobering reality to see how many homeless and impoverished people there are in our pueblo. The devoted employees and volunteers at Casa Maria are there 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year feeding and caring for our city’s people. I love that there is no paperwork or red tape required to volunteer time, or to show up, get fed, and receive support. Casa Maria is simply about feeding and loving humanity, one mouth and one heart at a time. If you are local, please consider volunteering once a week, or once a month. And wherever you live, consider who is in need around you. Love globally, serve locally! May all beings everywhere be fed, nourished and loved!
