Mariel has two recent creative endeavors in the world— Running From Crazy, an amazing documentary film about Mariel Hemingway’s family history and how she’s healing, and Running With Nature, a book she wrote with her partner in life and in love, Bobby Williams. And I relate to both!
For a good part of my life, I was running from the abuse and sorrow of my teen life. Through some synchronistic events (a friend giving me Out on a Limb by Shirley MacLaine for starters) I found myself understanding my past in a spiritual/psychic way. That lead to many epiphanies and an expanded awareness which ultimately led to the Divine. That awareness shifted my perspective and taught me to stop running with pain and begin running with a spiritual life. Whew!
And what does that have to do with Love? Everything! The Divine is the omnipresent, omnipotent Love force of our Universe. That epiphany came to me as a remembering at my first LaHo~Chi session and brought me to a place of peace that I had not felt on this Earth before.
Mariel Hemingway shared her thoughts on Divinity and Love with me…. and I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate relationships (while this interview took place around Valentine’s Day, it is relevant to any day)! It includes a beautiful message of love written by Bobby that Mariel reads for us!)
So no matter what day it is, celebrate Love. Whether it’s with a life partner, a friend, a parent, a child, an animal, with Mother Earth herself or a Higher Power of your understanding, celebrate because the Divine Loves you for who you are. And who you are is someone that no one else can be on this Earth, ever.
Mariel and her life partner, Bobby, celebrate with Mother Earth every day with mindful practices around food, exercise, each other and ultimately with the world.
If you have a few minutes, I hope you’ll watch Mariel’s Running from Crazy video trailer on the next page.
