The Invitation - A Poem by Oriah Mountain Dreamer

 It doesn't interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing.

It doesn't interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive.



It doesn't interest me what planets are squaring your moon. I want to know if you have touched the center of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life's betrayals or have become shriveled and closed from fear of further pain.


I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own, without moving to hide it, or fade it, or fix it.

I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own; if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, be realistic, remember the limitations of being human.

It doesn't interest me if the story you are telling me is true. I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself. If you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul. If you can be faithless and therefore trustworthy.

I want to know if you can see Beauty even when it is not pretty every day. And if you can source your own life from its presence.

I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine, and still stand at the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, 'Yes.'

It doesn't interest me to know where you live or how much money you have. I want to know if you can get up after the night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone and do what needs to be done to feed the children.

It doesn't interest me who you know or how you came to be here. I want to know if you will stand in the center of the fire with me and not shrink back.

It doesn't interest me where or what or with whom you have studied. I want to know what sustains you from the inside when all else falls away.

I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.

The Invitation by Oriah Mountain Dreamer

Is this poem not absolutely beautiful? Complete adoration. 
Let's all stand at the edge of the lake and shout to the silver moon, "Yes!" 
...and be interested.

Yoga for Clear Healthy Skin

Our Karma Krewe bud, Heather, has been working at finding ways to clear her skin holistically, without using harsh chemicals or medications. Last month, Heather shared her delicious homemade detox tea recipe with us that has really helped clarify her skin, and today she is sharing a few simple yoga poses that will help get the blood flowing to your face to promote healthy, glowing skin. Doing a few fun yoga poses every day sounds easy enough! Here is more info from Heather on why yoga is good for a glowing face:







Also, Soul Flower's Organic Skirted Leggings do come in a variety of colors: charcoal (the color Heather is wearing here), black, bright blue, cranberry, or olive - all of which are the comfiest skirted leggings you could ever want to find.


Isn't the bright blue amazing? So great for some energizing yoga!
If you have any questions regarding yoga for healthier skin, Heather's homemade detox tea recipe, or about the Organic Skirted Leggings, feel free to ask your questions in the comments below - we'd love to help make moving to a more holistic lifestyle as easy (and fun!) as possible!


Get Glowing,
Heather from Latter Day Style
and JacQ
