|MOTHER OF THE NOW, VISCERAL CONNECTION TO THE UNIVERSE. Announcing my ARRIVAL at the intersection of the past, present, and future--NOW! (Art by Hallelujah Truth)|
HALLELUJAH for being here NOW! Journeying through this month of blogging every day I have arrived at a most productive and joyous intersection of my creative work! I proclaim that I am the MOTHER OF NOW! And I am celebrating!

|HONORING THE NOW WITH AWE. Blogging and making art allow me to merge MIND and SOUL. This past year my daily creative practice of doing both has produced exciting results! I discovered the my SPIRITUAL ART PILGRIMAGE is a way of BEING--and not GOING. I still have a lot to learn about stopping, resting, and feeling the NOW, and that is why I have chosen the word "MOTHER" to guide me in 2013 (read #Reverb12 Day 29 blog post).

Today's incredible guest post (and stunning art) comes from my succulent wild friend Ruth. To be honest, I saved Ruth's words and images until [almost] last for good reason: as we near the end of the year, I wanted us to be galvanised by her exhortation to cultivate our lives as manifesto.
Often we see our life as a humongous journey, and we believe that not only have we not arrived at our far away desired destination, but we also think we must accomplish x, y, and z, before we can declare with satisfaction that we are THERE.
For a moment, take a close look at who you are NOW. See what you can declare.
Merge the past, present, and future into one big ARRIVAL.
Describe joyously and in great celebration the BEING that you ARE.

I love the way this sums up all we have been doing over the past month. All this soul-searching has been bringing us to this very place that Ruth so beautifully celebrates: exactly where we are, right now.
Thank you, Ruth.
