The Wonder of this Boy

My spiritual godchild Jonah is a wonder.
Here we are in Jonah's living room, with him teaching me how to spar.
I'm wearing his helmet and gloves;-)
His parents Val & Clark teach him about energy, transformation and the power of manifesting.
The other day Val told me that she was late while driving, and needed a parking
space. So she asked Jonah to help manifest it. He said "Sure, Mom." She looked in her rear view mirror to find him in a meditative posture in his car seat. They then found a parking space. She then looked in the mirror to see him meditating again, and she asked what he was doing. And he replied; "I'm manifesting a space for someone else."

    “I don’t really believe in strangers- I live in a world of everyone being a friend I just haven’t met yet.”
    Dear Sark,
    What an optimistic attitude! I love it. Your words of wisdom enrich, educate, entertain and enlighten me. Thanks for being yourself.
    Namaste and Love, Anil

    Dear SARK,
    1. You have the most BEAUTIFUL voice. It’s so comforting and warm and friendly, I feel like I’ve known you forever.
    2. When I travelled in Guatemala, I met a cab driver named Carlos. He was one of those cab driver angels you speak of. He and I instantly clicked and for the first time in 3 months I spoke Spanish without hesitation. Weeks later he saw me on the street and greeted me with hugs and kisses and inquiries about me. I never felt so loved by a “stranger”.
    3. Dancing with Difficulties… oh boy! I am! I said to my sister earlier today “I LOVE making mistakes, I am learning from them, LET ME make them!!!”
    Much love!

    This is just too precious. Your sweet & wise Jonah reminds me of my own son. I taught my son how to meditate when he was five and now that he is 13, I can see how he uses breathing to keep his calm during stressful situations.
    Enjoy Jonah and his parents.

    How timely that I read this just now! Last week my friend and I took a two-day jaunt together, and she felt compelled to tell me that my “friendliness” to other people frightened her because she’s afraid that some stranger will harm us. This is my best friend, and I respect her feelings, but I felt resentful that she expected me to restrain my interactions with strangers. I speak to everyone as if I’ve known them all my life; I feel that everyone yearns for acknowledgment. For the rest of our trip, I felt subdued and unnatural.

    manifesting a space for someone else.
    the wisdom of a beautiful child.
    as i read this all i can think is that this is one of those things that life is all about. manifesting space for ourselves, for one another. i often think about creating space and holding the space for someone else when we listen to someone tell their story. this image of manifesting the space deeply speaks to me.
    yes. love this. thank you for sharing this story.

    I am attending Juicy Pens, Thirsty Paper at Kripalu next week and am very excited! Can I buy the book there? I just read Succulent Wild Woman again and responded to the questions – so helpful and uplifting. I am looking forward to meeting you!

    Your wonderful, inspirational world of color and joy has been my companion since your first book. I used to call the inspiration hotline while I was babysitting to pay my way through UC Berkeley. Now I live in Ireland and often re-read your books during the long grey winters to light up my dark nights and remember to not only see the beauty in the obvious but to keep looking even when it doesn’t seem to be there so thanks for many years of good times spent together (in spirit at least). I’m shooting you with positive vibes from accross the planet.
