Naming your temple is identifying the object of your devotion. It’s choosing to dedicate yourself to a lifestyle that fills you up from the inside out. It’s making sacred your art, your time, & your energy.
Naming your temple is saying, “This is who I am and this is what I believe.” It’s giving yourself permission to want what you want, feel what you feel, and explore what you know.
Naming your temple is giving yourself permission to make your art your way because that’s what you’re called to do.
Naming your temple is bowing to your desire.
This naming is an ongoing process. It’s keeping things fresh and exciting while you discover who you are, what you want, and why you want it. It’s getting clear on what drives you so you can have more of what thrills you.
Naming your temple is making your home so you can be at peace with yourself wherever you are. It’s coming home to yourself over and over and over again.
That’s what I mean by “name your temple.” I’m talking about making your sacred art so you can come home to yourself again and again. Yes.
Of course, to “build your cathedral” means you have the courage to birth a grand vision in tangible, measurable ways. It’s taking the fruit of your art and making it real. It’s actually building your masterpiece after taking the time to envision it. It’s having the balls to actualise your wild-ass crazy dreams.
Name your temple so you can build your cathedral. Know your art so you can make your art. This is your sacred mission. This is your holy duty. This is why you’re here.
“It’s not about paying your dues. It’s about devotion, the freedom that comes when you’ve given up your clawing angst, and you know that you’re going to give this ride everything you have.” ~ Tama Kieves
This journey is not just about the big bucks. It’s not just about TED talks, standing ovations, and waiting lists for your latest offerings.
This journey is about devotion. It’s about vision, mastery, and depth. It’s about flow. It’s about diamonds and pearls. It’s about joy.
This journey is about living in the heavens. It’s about wildly incandescent art and ferociously brilliant visioning. It’s about the strength of being still and the power of motion. It’s about being in flow and mining the veins of gold in the subterranean layers of your soul. It’s about tap dancing with joy and swooning with love. It’s about love.
This journey is about naming your temple and building your cathedral. It’s about lightning bolts of clarity and live-wire energy. It’s about sapphires and brilliance. It’s about faith. It’s about treasure, the treasure of your Soul.
You are not determined by the circumstances around you. You are not determined by data. You are not determined by what other people say, think, or feel about you.
You are determined by love. You are determined by the strength of your heart and the size of your giving. You are determined by your faith and your joy. You are determined by your sacred unshakable truth.
You are worthy simply because you are here. You are worthy because of the the texture of your Soul. You are always worthy. Always.
Are you naming your temple?
