In this episode, I talked about what happens inside of you when you say yes to life. I talked about the uncomfortable, sometimes thrilling and sometimes nauseating process of expanding so that you can do something generative, something that brings hope and joy and beauty in yourself and in the world.
I talked about what I see happening on Day 2 of creation, when an expanse is created in between the waters, so new life can spring up. I hopefully gave you some language to explain what’s happening to you after the light has pierced the darkness of Day One, and now there is a new thing growing inside of you. I talked about how the bright light of Day One is not the end, it’s only the beginning.
