Inspiration from a 14th Century Poet

October 23, 2009
Hello, Magnificent Coach,

For this week’s Be Inspired Now! message, I’ve been given the joyful
task of sharing a poem from one of my favorite Persian writers, Hafiz.

He is one of the world’s most beloved poets, and often called the
Tongue of the Invisible. For very good reason!

What’s the magic of Hafiz? For me, it’s simple. If you can imagine
a doorway between the ordinary world and the spiritual realm;

there he stands, beckoning us to walk through – or at the very least,
inviting us to stand in that liminal place with him, to experience the
joy he feels there.
His poetry puts the mudane right next to the sublime; and squeezes us
into the space between the two. That’s where the magic happens.
The poem for today is Cast All Your Votes for Dancing.

Here’s to joy!

Until next time, I send you…

Love, joy and deep appreciation,

All You Need to Know About Love!

Hello, Magnificent Coach,

We’ve got another ‘spot’ of inspiration for you, this time
from Lisa Bloom, of  Story-Coach, Inc. She’s created a
YouTube video, and  I think it’s a wonderfully
joyful presentation. It’s less than five minutes long…and worth
every single second! Truly story-telling at its best!

You can view it now by clicking on the image below:

I wanted to say ‘thank you’ to all those who wrote in
to share their delight at the first message of the Be
Inspired Now
series. We so look forward to bringing you
more inspiration throughout the coming months!

An inspired coach takes inspired actions….

Love and Great Joy,


The Essential Key to Success…

October 23, 2009
Hello, Magnificent Coach!

We’re doing something a bit different here at Karen Cappello

Perhaps it the change of the seasons; perhaps it’s just the desire
to “mix-it up;” but whatever it is, the intention to support you in
taking inspired actions in your business and personal lives is

It’s long been my belief that the essential key to professional success
and financial abundance is inspiration: staying aligned to your source,
and expressing that alignment through inspired action.

The K-Casts were one way to support and inspire you, and now we’re
trying another: bi-weekly messages with links to exceptionally-
inspirational (and perhaps motivational) resources. We’re calling
them the “Be Inspired Now” series – and we hope you enjoy
reading them.

The first is a prose selection, You are Deeply Loved. We’ve made it the
first post as a reminder of an essential truth.

You are Deeply Loved

It is not necessary to know all the answers. It is not even necessary
to know all the questions you might ask.  All that is required is that
you know that you are not alone, that you are surrounded by the
hosts of heaven, by angels and spirits, by love unbounded, by
caring and attention.  Know that you are deeply loved.

Go ahead, walk your life.  Walk it as a man or woman walks, solid
and centered, true to his or her own truth.  Walk it making choices
and decisions, being as brave as you can be, opening doors and
saying yes, trying new things, being open to the newness that
flows uninvited from the world.  Hold your head high and do
your very best to shine out unafraid as you travel the path that
is laid out in front of you.

And as you walk, be certain of this one thing:  you are surrounded
by love, by help and guidance.  At any moment, you can take a
deep breath and ask:  What shall I do now?  How shall I handle
this situation?  How shall I face what I fear is behind that door?

And in that moment, an answer will come.  Not an explanation,
not a way to set your mind at ease with formulas and processes,
not a map for all the steps to take.  But an answer, an answer that
says:  Right now, in this moment, do this.  And that is answer

For in this moment, things are as they are.  It does not matter
what happened to make them as they are.  Right now, things are
as they are.  This is not a statement of despair or resignation.
This is a statement of truth, of wisdom.  Things are as they are.

And the blessing is that there is always a response to things as
they are, even if that response is to sit quietly and wait for the sun
to rise another day, for the earth to take another turn, for the moon
to pull the tides toward a strong and brilliant new day.

Have faith in yourself and in the help that is there for you.  Trust
that in its great mystery, the universe knows all and that this

knowledge that contains all that is and is likely to be, is conveyed
to you when you ask your simple question.

All the wisdom in the world is contained in a single drop of water
as it falls from the heavens.  Hold out your hand and catch it.  Watch
it spread and fill your palm, then your heart, then your life.  Gaze
into the deep waters of grace and know that the answer is there.

And what is that answer?  You are loved, you are deeply loved.
