If I dig deep enough – all the way to the very core of my inquiry, a big part of my quest is about making sense of it all. Searching for the answers I seek, I have a difficult time understanding that not everything in life is logical.  Most of it is a mystery and yes, it is with a great sense of gratitude that I respect that there are miracles happening every single moment […]

It’s pretty damn simple really. It all boils down to how we experience our lives. How alive we are in the moment. How we show up. How we experience life depends on how conscious we truly are.   The question is, how deeply awake we are as we experience our life. If we were radically honest with ourselves and woke up enough to notice, we’d admit that the majority of us are just sleepwalking children. Everything we […]

“If anyone can prove and show to me that I think and act in error, I will gladly change it – for I seek the truth, by which no one has ever been harmed. The one who is harmed is the one who abides in deceit and ignorance.” – Marcus Aurelius, Meditations 6.21 Read: The Daily Stoic by Ryan Holiday It is okay to change my mind today. I don’t need (or want) to always be […]

This morning I imagined what the 80 year old version of myself would tell me, if I asked her, “What do I do now?” “What should I focus on?” What wisdom would she have, nearing the end of her life? What would she have focused on today? She’d tell me to bike more, write more, film everything. Tell everyone I love how much I love them. Hug more, kiss more. Squeeze them tight. Use my creativity […]

Turning Your Passion into Progress

To be passionate about your dreams is one thing. To realize your dreams and create with purpose is completely another. Oh the danger of being drunk with passion and intoxicated with ideas. When all we have is passion, we fall prey to being impatient while assuming we will succeed while overcoming our limitations. Limitations are real and something we need to see clearly or we will never make progress. Self-denial about our limitations let us miss where we need to […]

On Trusting Yourself

Perhaps stumbling through and failing at life sometimes moves us to lose the deep trust in ourselves that we need to thrive. That loss of self-trust keeps us down, frozen and afraid to move forward.   Perhaps if we raise our “royal minds” and learn again to trust ourselves; no matter how many mistakes we make, as Ralph Waldo Emerson suggests in his essay “Spiritual Laws” we can begin to understand the importance of trusting oneself. “What a […]

Shortcuts to Self-Awareness

All the power that we need is within us and will set us free from a life of regret. All unnecessary worry and anguish melts away when we become more self-aware of our strengths and our weaknesses and realize that our greatest moment is the one right in front of us. Our lives become more peaceful and our minds become stronger. Our lives become better when we become more self-aware. “He who knows that power is […]

Clarity in Times of Uncertainty

  Experiencing “clarity” can be an incredibly liberating experience. The origin of the word clarity (latin: clarus) is so hopeful, it has ties to “glory”, “divine” and “splendor”.  Having clarity in uncertain times like these is not only beneficial but absolutely necessary to staying sane. I very much value feeling free of extraneous worry and stress and have recently lost all need to ruminate about problems I can not solve. I take care of what I can, […]

“Persistence recognizes genius, acknowledges talent and pays rewardingly only after one has refused to quit.” – Napoleon Hill We will never reach our full potential until we learn to push through the frustration, no matter how difficult our circumstances may be. Persistence can be fueled by . . Knowing what you want and shaking the earth to get it.  In other words, you must have a definite purpose backed by a blazing desire for its attainment. Demanding no […]
