Ellie's Huffington Post GPS for The Soul Guide

The Huffington Post has started an awesome new page. The editor asked me to share anything that centers me/calms me/makes me not so loony tunes (well, not in those words exactly).  I submitted photos and quotes that center me.   

Mouse over the photo for the caption on the right. It's surprisingly hard to figure out the slideshow captions.

It's Part Of The Process

Whenever I suffer from a "Vulnerability Hangover", a term coined by Brené Brown, I look at my photo of the ancient Theater of Delphi. It reminds me that storytelling is an ancient ritual. I'm a part of a collective experience. And a performer in 4th century BC probably walked off that stage and thought, "Geez. I really over-shared with that one."



There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and there is only one of you in all time. This expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium; and be lost. The world will not have it. 

It is not your business to determine how good it is, not how it compares with other expression. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open.

No artist is pleased. There is no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer, divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others. -Martha Graham
