No, You Can’t Have My Mind, I’m Using It: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Your Mind

No, You Can’t Have My Mind, I’m Using It: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Your Mind

  My subtitle is a nod to the magic being worked in many people’s lives by Marie Kondo’s book. This post, however, is occasioned by my realizing I needed to tell more than one beloved recently they could not have my mind because I was using it. I realize that people pay me for my […]

White “Anti-Fragility”: Post #11 in Our Series, What One (White) Person Can Do

  This post forms a pair together with our last post on the very useful concept of “White Fragility.” I’m interested in white folks becoming less fragile. What is the opposite of fragile? For some, it is “anti-fragile.” This is a concept from studies of adaptive systems: what allows people to succeed as entrepreneurs,  for example? A higher-than-average […]

White Fragility: Post #10 in Our Series, What One (White) Person Can do

I am always excited about a useful idea. This is the first of two posts back-to-back* on “white fragility,” a wonderfully useful idea crafted by Robin DiAngelo. Robin’s idea is that we whites live in such a protected environment when it comes to race that we become racially “fragile.” It’s like we are hothouse flowers who […]

Fascinating Failure

Fascinating Failure

A lot of smart things have been written about failure, including by me!* Here in RAISING CLARITY’s Facebook Group, I blogged my way through the fears of failure connected with my doing a “Healing Power of Moving Money” workshop last week in New York City. (And got tons of exquisite support–the point of the Group.) While I don’t […]

Future Tense, Relaxed, Undecided

  This post builds on the thinking I was doing in our recent post,  “Abundance and Racism.” I’ve been walking around New York City. Not the NYC of the photo above, but the Times Square, Madison Square Garden, Penn Station area of Midtown Manhattan. There, I’ve been struck like a body-blow by the disparity between what I’ll characterize […]

Overtaken by Grace

Overtaken by Grace

This is the season of fruiting, past the season of flowering and before the season of harvest. Some of what we notice in this season is pure terror at what has manifested in our lives. Some of what we notice is gratitude. But right now, it’s especially easy to notice. Everything is on the surface. Very […]

Abundance and Racism

Abundance and Racism

I have been struck by a few things: abundance is real more money is given to end physical illnesses than to end racism income inequality is expanding abundance can become a spiral in which “haves” have more and “have-nots” have less abundance can become a spiral in which we understand “having” as “giving,” or, if you like, […]

Helping You Cultivate Detachment

Helping You Cultivate Detachment

I’m not the only one who made a vow of poverty in a past lifetime. I bet you have too. I bet that is one reason you read this blog, in fact, whether you know it or not. You wrestle with money because at one point in a lifetime, you wrestled with money and decided just to be […]

Open Your Own Mail, Part II

Say you took our last post to heart, and have started trying to read just your own mail: you want to deal with just the difficulties addressed to you. Say you are having a hard time discerning when it’s really your mail and when you should leave it unopened. You’re willing to let some difficulties pass […]

Open Your Own Mail, Part I

When [the Master] runs into a difficulty, she stops and gives herself to it. –Tao Te Ching chapter 63, Lao-tzu. Transl. Stephen Mitchell, 1988 A difficulty is like a letter with her address on it. –Stephen Mitchell’s commentary to his translation of the Tao Te Ching chapter 63, p. 109 I have spent a lot […]
