It usually happens when I declare I am going to learn something new.  Like right now, I am learning how to film and edit with Adobe Premiere Pro. Hours can go by and I don’t even know what happened. I am so involved in the process. Struggling through learning something new on After Effects, I look up and it’s 11 pm. My Fitbit app telling me it’s time to get some rest.  I like this […]

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.

Trying to figure out why certain things happen in life is like attempting to piece together a thousand-piece jigsaw puzzle while having only a few pieces of the puzzle in your possession. You cannot fully understand the present situation using the logic of your finite mind. Just know that a bigger picture exists, even though it is not possible for you to see it at this time. Trust, for all that is happening is an […]

“Life requires of man spiritual elasticity, so that he may temper his efforts to the chances that are offered.” ― Viktor E. Frankl “Change is essential for survival.
