Quote of the Month:

“When you touch your personal, internal cord of authenticity, you touch a universal cord of authenticity. Reaching to connect authenticity to authenticity is what confirms our shared humanity against the odds of crisis, chaos and fear. Connect and Ever Day Opportunity becomes possible no matter what experience challenges us!”

~ Rise Up

Message From Bobbie:

If you’ve been following this year’s Newsletters you know the Rise Up! purpose, month to month, is to answer our lifetime’s most challenging question: “How do we survive and thrive, be reliable and compassionate human beings every day no matter the hour, the barrier to entry, the high hurdle or the bottom-of-the-pit we face? How do we find our True Self, deep, real and authentic and remain positive, courageous and even ambitious, ALIVE in possibility, no matter the experience?”

We’ve learned to Stay; to Identify Ourselves by enlightened Self-Definitions and Be Grateful. In the meantime our world continues to challenge resolve and throw problems our way. We cannot control the world but we can SHOW UP, continue our personal work bravely with consistent self-love and self-care.

Featured Journal Entry:

Connect to be Fully Human and Turn Every Experience into Opportunity

Allison has the Hollywood job that makes young entertainment students everywhere envious. “I worked hard to become a movie editor. When you edit film you start by running for coffee for the real editors and directors and even assistants. It takes years to move up to assistant editor; and crazy-long hours indoors, often well past midnight and most weekends when a new film is meeting a distribution deadline. Pretty soon you lose all perspective, and, while this sounds dramatic, I felt like I lost my soul. Then I found Rise Up! It took me several sessions to re-learn to just breathe, STAY, to Question the Definition of Myself and even more time to Face Fear. But when I did I felt authentic again! You could say my spirit woke up after too many years in dark editing bays.”

When we Connect we understand the vital importance of the Golden Thread that weaves our hearts to minds, to emotions and spirits. We experience ourselves as a continuum of finely tuned, always changing, essential elements! We come to understand how not one piece, or element, of ourselves, not one process or part that we identify as “me,” can be separated from another. From that space of authenticity we are able to reach out and Connect the dots that make us part of ALL humanity. Once we are ONE with ourselves and ONE with the world, truly, we see how Every Experience creates Opportunity.

Featured Exercise:

  1. Stay: The three deep inhales, exhales that allow our hearts and minds to unwind and connect together are always the best way to begin a commitment to SELF-Care and therefore to care for and about others.
  2. Connect should not be a push to compete for “best contribution” or for some goal that isn’t truly a reflection of who we are as Defined by Ourselves. So ask yourself: (in your meditative Stay heart-mind) “what is the contribution that I may make that best aligns with who I am!”
  3. Connect works best when our inner life and outer life are truly one! I.E: If you are artist ask yourself: “how can I use my ART to connect?” (That is what my friend Cathy Salser asked herself twenty years ago; click here to see what she created!)
