I PVR many movies and then they just sit on my PVR unwatched. But today I decided to watch "Eat Pray Love" the story of a woman who realizes she no longer has an appetite for life or love. She is empty inside, spent and lost. What does one do when one realizes that and does not have the financial means to live in Italy to learn Italian and eat their way through their emotions, live in an ashram in India or move to Bali and ride a bike?
FIRE in the Belly..... when it goes out does eating hot peppers ignite it again or simply create a need for Pepto Bizmo? Jalapenos? Naw ... good food for thought, good friends, good relationships, good experiences. All feed this fire and when those are missing the fire goes out.
"Gawd" for me is fire in the belly and right now this fire is out because I cannot find Gawd in my heart, my belly or my soul. So I am going to go searching... for bigger jeans Gawd in the flesh, food and presence of this human life. As I grow fat on all the research I can do I will plump out on passion. I will find it because I am going looking for it and not inside the walls of a church sanctuary with other homogeneous people hoping that somewhere in this space is the wholeness of life. Somewhere in the bad coffee and processed cookies is food for the soul as people talk superficially about the fundraising dinner that is necessary in order to keep the lights on.
I want to fling open the doors in order to invite people in to tell me what it is they are looking for. Tell me how I can offer a program that will make them laugh, feel a part of, and have fire ignited in them to come out and participate. I want to open an oasis for all, a colourful rainbow of wonder with all people that want to engage with me.
Come and colour your world with me. Let's meditate together, laugh together and find that fire in our belly and then we can call it whatever we want!!
