WELCOME TO ALL WHO VISIT~

I write about connectedness in all its myriad forms. Connectedness to oneself. Connectedness to other.

DeepScribeJudith 

I thrive on connection. Like a plant reaching out to the sun, I cannot help myself. For me, connectedness is an open-hearted oneness with all of life. Connectedness is Love.

I am also a Life Artist. Everything I do is art. I make Beauty wherever I go. For me, Beauty is a spiritual path and creativity my food and water.

I am also a lifelong meditator. I have meditated my brains out. This site is my imperfect offering. May it reach kindred spirits and enliven and inspire.

Deep bow,

Judith Smith

 

MY CALLING~

I have traveled the Hell Path. The only way I could deal with so much adversity was to use it as my teacher.

Beata Beatrice by Dante Gabriel Rossetti

In every trial, I trained myself to look and see how I could grow, how I could be awake, how I could face anything and handle it so that ultimately I could use my experience to help others. It was the only way I could manage living in this world. 

Now I know there is a gift in everything. I am walking out of Hell. But, I still remain in the crucible of Love for the good of all beings. Transformation is my life’s work and it will continue until my final breath. That’s okay with me. It is my calling.
