Lightly My Darling

I’ve always loved Aldous Huxley; so many beautiful quotes from such a lovely spirit!  Here’s one that spoke to me today… perhaps it will speak to you, as well.  “Lightly my darling.”

It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them. So throw away your baggage and go forward. There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That’s why you must walk so lightly. Lightly my darling.

Many years ago, I sat with Terence after a magic mushroom conference, and he urged me to put all my consciousness explorations and psychonautic visions into my songs.  I listened… and his advise changed everything.  My songs became both more mystical and more authentic.  Because of Terence, many things expanded into the work I share with you today.

He also inspired my counseling work, which touched even more people.  What a gift he gave me in that conversation.  I am eternally grateful.

Embracing a visionary lifestyle, divine feminine, compassion, love, curiosity & creativity makes a life ever more magickal, does it not?

This Terence quote made me laugh:

Notice that the whole story of Eden is the story of the struggle over a woman’s relationship to a psychoactive plant.
