Be around the light bringers, the magic makers, the world shifters, the game shakers. They challenge you, break you open, uplift you and expand you. They don’t let you play small with your life. These heartbeats are your people. These people are your tribe. – Danna Faulds
When I think about the people who have changed my life, they were not people who agreed with everything I said or thought. They accepted me as I was, but didn’t let me play small in life and challenged my truth. They revealed the mirror of my life and in the right time, they lovingly expanded my limiting beliefs.
These are the people I want to surround myself with, these are the people who remind me there is always more to understand, more to love and more to see in this beautiful world.
Danna Faulds poem inspires us to connect with a tribe that encourages us to be the all of everything and not to run away from anything that we find.
Go in and in
Be the space between two cells
the vast, resounding silence in which spirit dwells
Be sugar dissolving on the tongue of life
Dive in and in
Be infinite, ecstatic truth
Be love conceived and born in unison. Be exactly what you seek.
The Beloved, singing Yes, tasting Yes, embracing Yes, until there is only essence.
The all of everything expressing through you, as you go in and in and run away from nothing that you find.

So so good❣🙏
Yes! I feel full when I read her words! Thanks Val 💕🙏🏻
Interesting take on tribes. Caroline Myss speaks to them, has for years. I’ve found my tribe in the most unlikely places. They haven’t been those I’ve been initially attracted to, including my husband(!) But these friendships have lasted for many years. So I guess we’re weaving a tribal shawl of many, many different threads and hues! Aloha, Karen.
I agree Bela. they are not always the people we want but the ones we need and yes to weaving a tribal shawl. I like that idea. Aloha 💕
Love this: didn’t let me play small in life and challenged my truth.
Yes! Grateful for that 🙏🏻
This is beautiful. I especially appreciate the part about people changing one’s life are not necessarily the people that agree woth us.
Yes, so true Peta. Thankyou for your comment. 🙏🏻💕
You are my tribe. I know this much is true. ❤
Thankyou Sawsan. Our WP connection is very special, and I appreciate you and all the people I follow. 💕🙏🏻
Love everything about this, Karen. So important to be lovingly challenged. Like Sawsan, I’ve been blessed to find a portion of my tribe here on line–you, DK, Sawsan, Mimi, Val, Sandy and many others. So very grateful for all of you…
It’s a beautiful tribe of people to connect with each day! and I have learned a lot. Thankyou Lori 💕
Beautiful poem and inspires me to explore more of her works! Yes, we often grow from challenges, in fact, I would wager we can always and that the mundane is what keeps is stuck. Not always comfortable, but growth is a good thing! Happy weekend Karen!
Growth gives us freedom and that’s why I say yes to challenges ha! It is a beautiful poem. Happy weekend to you too Heather. 💕🍃💕
Truly beautiful Karen. Some of us look for a tribe, and never seem to find it. Perhaps in the searching we are made whole.
Your connection to the WordPress community is a tribe Nico. Your writing and poems you share are so important. And it’s true, at the end if the day we only have ourselves to be with. Thankyou 🙏🏻
Thank you for your kind words. Peace
Wonderfully wise – let it fill us up! Thanks for these quotes, Karen.
Yes indeed! Thankyou Eliza. Happy Friday 💕😀
I love this one. I have always said I hope to find a partner in life who will lovingly challenge me–see through the filters I may not even know I have. And I will do the same for him. That sounds delicious:).
It does sound delicious and you deserve that my friend! Can’t wait for him to meet your gorgeous soul 💚💕
beautiful words and photo Karen, thanks
