You best believe I’m gonna drown in my sorrows
What else am I gonna do?
Pretend it’s not there?
Tell myself I’ll never feel this way again and lie to myself over and over to avoid confronting the overwhelming reality that my life has become so I don’t have this pain dwelling inside of me and inevitably become a hollow shell of a person that gave up all of their emotions and ambitions just to exist? Is that even living at that point? No. Not me. That’s not Blake. That’s not what I’m about. I will see every bit of this pain through and see it for what it really is until I become at peace with it and rise again. Even if it takes me down forever I will at least live knowing I never lied to myself.
I sure love running around barefoot in nature. Almost every pic here on IG am I am the #barefoot bandit. Hiking here was amazing, super sunny beaches, green, and freshest of air. Then, life literally throws you for loop. Here at “Discovery Loop Park” I got some kind of wood splinter on the bottom of my foot. Not til 3 days later...the foot saga began. While getting a piece out the first night and not getting out the rest my foot got infected. For 10 days! Limping and working events was painful and awfully challenging. I was doing everything to heal it naturally. Got another piece of splinter out, and I even saw a nurse/medic who treated it. Thought it was going to heal and it was over, but It wasn’t. The frustration was next level and I observed how I started to come unhinged in my center. Then I got news my mom was very ill and could not travel to see her. Bonus round challenge! No matter how many mantras or deep breathes I was losing my Sandi cool. Finally, after all my travel and gigs I was able to see a doc in weho and then a podiatrist in BH same day who found another piece deeper in the foot. She did a surgery and after 5 days, my foot is now healed. Big lessons here for me; Don’t walk barefoot EVAH! Jus kiddin. Lesson for me was life can throw you some really unexpected not so pleasant experience’s. Ya got to keep going and don’t give up! Healing is truly a process of tremendous patience, faith and intuition. Even though I employed breathe work and tons of natural remedies, it was still hard and overwhelming. Grateful to have help of good friends, my dad, and medical experts. Sharing this because most of times things are going great or real well for us. Then, Ka Pow 💥 your whacked with yucky juju. Physically, emotionally and sometimes spiritually. Even the greatest of spiritual leaders endure a kind of suffering.

His Presence. It’s Everything. Don’t look for the experts who will show you steps how to make your life here work. Rather, find the people who will lead you into God’s Presence. 2 Chron 29. Those kings of long ago longed for holiness not just economic strength or safe borders or military power. No matter how great or confusing or painful our days, 7 words from 66 Love Letters. “Live in the Mystery of His Love.” Wrestle well. Trust deep. I walked miles at St. David’s Hospital today. In their garden. Checked myself in at 6:45am for a routine oncology visit. Always unnerving. And they never called back as they said they would if everything was all right. And I struggled. So want to live in That Kind of trust. Praying as I walked with Ezri tonight. Praying for the 11 friends I know who have just been in the hospital. Half young. And I’ll always keep praying for The Rodgers family losing their precious Aggie boy @bl_ke_july4_party to an auto accident and he skidded Home safe in His Arms. That celebration! I Cor 2:3-4. A demonstration of the Power of God! And also for Austin’s Aggie roommate hit by tragedy, so unexpected, such unspeakable loss. Been overwhelming. May we all long for Him and His Presence more than getting our lives together here. Entrust your soul. He’s Beautiful. #summerwalksof2018#prayingthewordcovertocover2018#10000moments#suffering#holyspace PS Full video on FB
There is no single effort more radical in its potential for saving the world than a transformation of the way we raise our children.
My heart hurts I can't even tell ... children being separated from their parents. Fear. Tears. Sweat. Fear. All over again.
I'm sitting in my safe place, holding my daughter in my arms and praying. Feeling the pain and embracing it.
I wish I could do more. For now I keep praying, sending love&flight and donating to @together.rising
THIS HAS TO STOP ✋🏽
Not the children...here or anywhere.
We have a moral responsibility here, these children are our children. What can you do? Sign the petition, go to a protest (June 30th), write, donate, speak, vote!

For a long time every part of me was dying. I had lyme disease and spent a good 9 years being bounced around the medical system with mis or no diagnosis...becoming more unwell ar each turn.
I remember the day. After some serious meditation ar an ashram in India i decided to embrace my body as it was. Rather than trying to fight what was happening, or aggressively trying to force my body to 'heal' I decided to accept. I meet each sensation with love. I listened and allowed. I accept4d that perhaps I would die from this unknown situation. perhaps I would always feel like I was dying and perhaps no one would ever understand me or believe me.
From this moment. The moment I decided to meet the experience with a warm embrace and accept it - EVERYTHING CHANGED because I was no longer attached or fighting or forcing. I still dedicate my life towards healing - but really healing allows us to feel the full human experience. real healing happens when we aremt attached to an outcome or destination.... Can you embrace the full human experience?
Когда два близких, когда то человека встретились... и теперь ненавидят друг друга... мы как с разных планет... ад устраиваем друг другу... и каждый уступать не собирается во все... И бы у каждого своя правда... и чья правда будет уже не понимает никто... одна стреляет стрелами в него... о отбивается мечами... пока не понятно, что будет дальше... а может уже ничего и нет... Ваш Петр Цапко
When two loved ones, once a man met ... and now they hate each other ... we are like from different planets ... hell arrange each other ... and everyone is not going to concede to everything ... And everyone would have their own truth ... and whose truth will no longer be understood by anyone ... one shoots arrows at him ... o fights with swords ... it is not yet clear what will happen next ... but maybe there is nothing ...
Yours, Petr Tsapko
Life is not about peaches and cream. Pain and suffering is part of our human experience. When it knocks in your door aka "life" feel it and see it for what it is then move on from it. Remember everything is in a constant state of change. Whatever emotions you are feeling now, soon will change to some other emotion. Enjoy your present moment :)
She had such a fragile heart, she wanted everyone pleased and happy. She kept trying to fix the world, or, at least, just her world, but it was too broken, she ended up with a troubled soul, she kept thinking, what would have happened if she just didn't care or even just isolated herself from all of that noise, distraction, and destruction? Would it be better? Will she find some comfort at last? Or will her suffering be a daunting and a haunting shade that would follow her wherever she went?
Isaiah 48:10. The word "refine" means to remove unwanted or impure things, or to test, develop, or improve. One of God's most effective tools for refining us is our suffering. So often when we suffer, we immediately focus on the pain, blame God, and question why He allows such painful struggles to occur in our lives if He loves us. How we respond to suffering is extremely important. If we become angry, blame God, abandon our faith, and refuse to listen to Him, we miss out on the refining benefits of suffering, and so we simply suffer for nothing. Do not suffer for nothing when you can have the response to suffering that pleases God and fulfills His purpose of our suffering. What is the correct response to suffering? We are to trust God and know that our suffering has a purpose. We are to be joyful and thank God for what He is doing for us through our suffering as we understand that suffering refines us and makes us more like Christ. Suffering refines us by getting our attention and making us understand that we have unwanted things in our lives like unconfessed sin and pride. Suffering also refines us by strengthening our faith in God, increasing our dependence on Him, and helping us realize that God is always faithful to us even when we are struggling. We need to understand that our suffering has a purpose and that purpose is to refine us and make us more like Christ. Once we understand how our suffering is actually for our good, it gradually becomes easier to be joyful and thankful during our suffering even though it is difficult to do when we are in the middle of suffering.
