Sentir que je suis sur le point de les ouvrir... Pour choisir de voir quoi ? De faire quoi ? ••• I know Rilke, I try to come back to your words : « Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. »
Ça y est, mes prochains livres à lire seront ceux de David Whyte. ✨ ••• « When your eyes are tired the world is tired also. When your vision has gone no part of the world can find you. Time to go into the dark where the night has eyes to recognize its own. There you can be sure you are not beyond love. The dark will be your womb tonight. The night will give you a horizon further than you can see. You must learn one thing. The world was made to be free in Give up all the other worlds except the one to which you belong. Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet confinement of your aloneness to learn anything or anyone that does not bring you alive is too small for you. » – Sweet Darkness, by David Whyte
« That came from a new place in me. That’s when I realized that anyone can change and become fierce. » - Jane Fonda. | Merci @emilyvancamp pour le rappel il y a quelques semaines, ici même;)
L’été est encore loin, mais reconnaître l’importance de porter attention n’appartient pas au saison. ••• THE SUMMER DAY Who made the world? Who made the swan, and the black bear? Who made the grasshopper? This grasshopper, I mean- the one who has flung herself out of the grass, the one who is eating sugar out of my hand, who is moving her jaws back and forth instead of up and down- who is gazing around with her enormous and complicated eyes. Now she lifts her pale forearms and thoroughly washes her face. Now she snaps her wings open, and floats away. I don't know exactly what a prayer is. I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down into the grass, how to kneel down in the grass, how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields, which is what I have been doing all day. Tell me, what else should I have done? Doesn't everything die at last, and too soon? Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life? —Mary Oliver. | 📷 by @shaynelaverdiere for @marcellecosmetics
Merci @gretathunberg #prixnobeldelapaix. ••• @gretathunberg you are becoming the face of a movement, but i’ll make sure to come back to the power of the words you dared to expose. For all of us to finally wake up. #nobelpeaceprizenominee « My name is Greta Thunberg. I am 15 years old. I am from Sweden. I speak on behalf of Climate Justice Now. Many people say that Sweden is just a small country and it doesn’t matter what we do. But I’ve learned you are never too small to make a difference. And if a few children can get headlines all over the world just by not going to school, then imagine what we could all do together if we really wanted to. But to do that, we have to speak clearly, no matter how uncomfortable that may be. You only speak of green eternal economic growth because you are too scared of being unpopular. You only talk about moving forward with the same bad ideas that got us into this mess, even when the only sensible thing to do is pull the emergency brake. You are not mature enough to tell it like is. Even that burden you leave to us children. But I don’t care about being popular. I care about climate justice and the living planet. Our civilization is being sacrificed for the opportunity of a very small number of people to continue making enormous amounts of money. Our biosphere is being sacrificed so that rich people in countries like mine can live in luxury. It is the sufferings of the many which pay for the luxuries of the few. The year 2078, I will celebrate my 75th birthday. If I have children maybe they will spend that day with me. Maybe they will ask me about you. Maybe they will ask why you didn’t do anything while there still was time to act. You say you love your children above all else, and yet you are stealing their future in front of their very eyes. »

J’ai vu cette oeuvre du peintre russe Abram Efimovič Arkhipov pour la première fois lors d’un cours de @filmmakinglabs. L’exercice était de définir ce que cette toile nous faisait ressentir, ce qu’on y voyait. La chaleur de la communion. La tendresse enveloppante de la rencontre et des confidences. La lumière qui irradie alors que ces femmes se regardent et s’accueillent, attentives les unes aux autres. En cette #journéeinternationaledelafemme, c’est l’image et le sentiment profond que j’ai envie de nous offrir, les Filles. 🌷🌸🌺🌹 ••• For #internationalwomensday, this painting by Abram Efimovič Arkhipov from 1915 is the image that comes to mind to illustrate what I want to highlight about us, Ladies. Our warmth. Our joy of gathering, of belonging together. Our light. And our attentive presence when listening to one another. Let’s nurture that, Sisters. 🌷🌹🌸🌺. | #abramefimovicharkhipov, On a Visit, oil on canvas, 1915.
À 9 ans, je rêvais de rencontrer Céline Dion. À 35 ans, le rêve serait de passer une journée à suivre @ktippett1 alors qu’elle prépare ses entrevues pour @onbeing. ✨ #SurLaRoutePendantDesHeuresAvecSaVoixEtSesQuestions. ••• At 9 yrs old, I dreamed of meeting Céline Dion. At 35, all I would wish for is to spend an entire day with @ktippett1 as she is getting ready for one of her new interviews for the @onbeing podcast. Is there a contest I can sign up for to win that prize ? ✨ Listening to some favorite interviews of hers while driving for hours. « Critical thinking without hope is cynicism, but hope without critical thinking is naïveté. » - Maria Popova @brainpicker « The very mecanisms in the brain that allow adversity to get under the skin are also the mecanisms that enable awakening. They are the same mecanisms. So we can harness this power of neuro plasticity for the good by cultivating certain kinds of virtuous qualities, but neuro plasticity in and off itself is neutral. » - neuroscientist #richarddavidsonphd
Aspirée par tout ça. Depuis le début de la semaine. ••• Regardless of your personal opinion, watching this documentary does raise this disturbing question : How far are we willing to let a Celebrity, a person with power go to keep them on a pedestal, in a God-like position... What are we willing to let them do, what kind of behavior can we accept from them without letting our sound judgment take over ? #LeavingNeverland | Separate visual that I chose to link to this text. 📷 @davidvandartel in @somewheremagazine

J’avais réussi à toucher à cette discipline quotidienne tout juste avant l’âge adulte. J’ai perdu le contact par la suite. Je pensais que d’ajouter la présence d’un enfant à ma réalité rendrait encore plus difficile de me rapprocher de ce genre de discipline personelle. C’est tout le contraire qui se produit. Merci @myvirtualyoga de me permettre à distance de reprendre ma pratique. Comme quoi il n’est jamais trop tard pour refaire de la place à ce qui nous rejoint en profondeur. (En ayant trouvé un peu plus de bienveillance envers soi en chemin pour y arriver. ) 🙏🏼

Être attentive. Juste ça. Pour ressentir. Le plus possible. ••• « In Galapagos, I began to realize that because I was in deeply attentive states, hour after hour, watching animals and birds and landscapes — and that’s all I did for almost two years — I began to realize that my identity depended not upon any beliefs I had, inherited beliefs or manufactured beliefs, but my identity actually depended on how much attention I was paying to things that were other than myself and that as you deepen this intentionality and this attention, you started to broaden and deepen your own sense of presence. » - David Whyte 📓

Souvenir islandais de multicouches. ••• « ‘Take it as it comes’ is the best way to learn the language of your felt sense. Information will come to you in the form of words, pictures, insights, and emotions, which invariably will be accompanied by another layer of sensations. These sensations can be elusive yet recognizable when you learn how to pay attention on a very subtle level. » - 📔#WakingTheTiger @drpeteralevine. | photo : Iceland 2018
