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 […]

Living is a form of not being sure, not knowing what’s next or how. The moment you know how, you begin to die a little. The artist never entirely knows. We guess. We may be wrong, but we take leap after leap in the dark.   – Agnes de Mille. I have always felt very uncomfortable the moment I began to feel even slightly comfortable.  Some of my dearest friends have called me out on this. […]

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 […]

So why did I start this blog in the first place? I started because I knew I had to grow. I knew I had to grow emotionally, spiritually, professionally and physically. I knew that if I didn’t grow and change and adapt, I would be stuck. I don’t want to be stuck and I don’t want to stay the same. It’s not serving me well. At each level of your life, the world demands a […]

“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 […]

Surrender and Slow Down Expect some pain today. When faced with problems during the day, I like to think of them as growing pains. You see, the counter-intuitive (and funny) thing about embarking on the path of personal growth is that it’s not going to be all cake and cookies. Read: 7 Harsh Truths About Personal Growth. However, whatever you do, don’t add to your pain and problems. Slow down, see life as it is, not […]

Today let me carve out time – time out of my busy schedule to nurture my soul. To do the real living. Not just the busy work. Let me not rush into another day without taking moments for myself. Time to meditate, move and to feel my wild heart beating. Let me remember to acknowledge that this day is another chance to create something valuable for the world.   Let me take all of my […]

Four weeks into The Artist’s Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity and I am drowning deep in dark emotional pain. Ugggghhhhh, I have protected myself from this real work for way too long. I knew it would be hard, I have avoided facing the truth about what I really fear for a very long time. Looking for short cuts, life hacks. . .rushing through self-repair is never really possible. And damn it, I knew that. I raise my […]

The best gift you can give anyone is your full and true presence. Distractions are everywhere, and who has the time for anyone, really? I resolve from this moment forward to make more time for truer communication with those I love. This is what makes life more memorable. Generous Listening Inspired by Becoming Wise I’m thinking about how important it is to listen generously. How to compassionately communicate and hear another’s soul, even through the most […]
