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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

 In my playbook, every day is Thanksgiving and I bet a lot of you reading this feel the same way. As we remain grateful this holiday, let’s take a moment to consider how fleeting life really is. . .memento mori. A Life That Matters  (A Non Religious Funeral Reading) Ready or not, some day it will all come to an end. There will be no more sunrises, no minutes, hours, days. All the things you collected, […]

What are Keystone Habits? Habits are what we do every day. Habits can help us grow or hold us back. Some habits are more important than others — they have the power to transform our lives. Keystone habits lead to the development of multiple good habits. They start a chain effect in your life that produce a number of positive outcomes. Getting enough restful sleep every night is a keystone habit. It will help you […]

Last night I closed my eyes before falling to sleep and made a decision. I want every day to feel more exciting and adventurous.   Or in other words. . . . A common song sung to a great melody is another way to find beauty. – The Art of Writing, Lu Chi’s Wen Fu. So, today showed up again. In all it’s predictable glory. The same usual sunrise, just slightly different. Another clean and clear slate of […]

A special meeting scheduled today with Caren Martineau, Founder of Bevival.com, a place that invites people to share their thoughts about the end of life, about death as we know it. I found this video on her website and felt compelled to share it. And as one great discovery leads to yet another, I know I will enjoy watching Jason Silva’s YouTube channel Shots of Awe.

A Difficult Question, Yet an Important One

You aren’t you, are you? You’re just a few ripples of you. You’re a performer of stuff. Performing without thinking. What if? What if you could reset you? What if you were given the opportunity to step off the treadmill of  life for a year? How would you spend your time and redefine your hours and days? If you were provided with food, shelter and clothing and did not have a care in the world, how would […]
