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 […]

This post is for me, but if you read something that resonates with you, please let me know. Comment below or send me a tweet @marketcouncil.   I would love to hear your thoughts. The Way You Do Anything, is the Way You Do Everything I’m thinking about why my successes are not more consistent. Why my life seems so yo-yo-ee.   A bit up and down.  Why I haven’t achieved all that I want by […]

The Goal: A Completely Transparent & Unclouded Mind I am not an online shopper. I don’t buy much stuff at all. But this week I’m anxiously checking my mailbox daily. I’ll try (almost) anything to tame my unsettled and restless monkey mind. What did I order, you ask? A brain boosting mushroom (minus the visuals ) coffee with lion’s mane (supposedly good for memory and in a category of safe, smart drugs or nootropics) as well as […]

Today I honor, acknowledge, applaud, celebrate and recognize the watchful one, my husband, partner, collaborator and best friend, my Knight and Day, Sir Gregory Johnson on his birthday.   My wish for him today and everyday – that he may remain awake, alert and aware to the divine truth within him and continue to co-create and prevail with God.  Stand tall in the tower Gregory. I support you in every way. Gregory, extraordinarily beautiful yet slightly out of focus, this […]

“When America raced to send the first men into space, they trained the astronauts in one skill more than in any other: the art of not panicking. When people panic, they make mistakes. They override systems. They disregard procedures, ignore rules. They deviate from the plan. They become unresponsive and stop thinking clearly. At 150 miles above Earth in a spaceship smaller than a VW, this is death. Panic is suicide.” A quote from Ryan […]

Have you ever wondered what make some people wildly successful, others just middle of the road mediocre and  some just, well really bad at what they do? Are the super successful achievers bestowed  some special divine gift? Some inborn or innate ability? Is there such a thing as a natural born leader? Have you ever wondered what category you fit in?  Are you destined for greatness?  I could be wrong, but I imagine that any of us […]

Today I consider the question that baffles my mind, the question I love to hate most-How do we live our true purpose in life? I actually considered banning this question from my thoughts, but was inspired this morning with this kind of awesome idea. It goes something like this – Begin with – guarding our thoughts – The mind is everything. What you think you become. –Buddha First we must carefully protect our minds. Our […]

We all wish for a simple, peaceful, calm and enjoyable life, but challenges and problems are inevitable. Awesome advice from Demetrius the cynic on how to rise to life’s daily frustrations and annoyances. “If you have nothing to stir up and rouse you into action, nothing which will test your resolution by its threats and hostilities; if you recline in unshaken comfort, it is not tranquility; it is merely a flat calm.” Bear as bravely as possible the […]

While I have lived and have traveled to some pretty amazing places, I have always felt that my true home, my refuge, was in my heart and in this present moment right now.Home, you have sought it everywhere, but you are already there. Home, the flowing river of the heart. Love holding you in close embrace. Home, it’s not a place but a state of being. Enjoy more poetry from Danna Faulds Go In and In: Poems From the Heart […]
