Influence

July 29, 2016

Each relationship we have can create influence, we them and them us. As you know none of us are exactly the same. We live on a broad spectrum of existence. And whether we know it or not we are constantly being exposed to new ideas and beliefs. These beliefs or realities, if you will, are […]

Grow, integrate and rest.

July 25, 2016

I believe we live in cycles and that everything around us does. Growth demands a temporary surrender of security. (also known as risk) Integration is about altering ourselves moving forward from knowledge we acquire. Rest is where we assess what’s needed next and gather energy to move forward again. What does surrender mean to you? […]

Judgments Vs. Discernment

July 18, 2016

Judgments are at the root of suffering. The judgments I’m referring to are the kind used on ourselves and others to create hierarchy and power differentials. You know, ones like: I’m not good enough. I’m better than you. I’ll never measure up. You don’t belong here. Judgments create separation and disconnection. Since humans are neurobiologically […]

You Will Die!

July 8, 2016

The trouble is, you think you have more time. ~Buddha Very eloquent. Me…not so much. I simply ask, when will you stop fucking around? You waste time. I do, you do, we all do. You aren’t as effective as you want to be. Join the club. I, for one, am constantly looking to change that. […]

Reflection

It’s the end of another year. It’s time to reflect and look at what has worked for you and…what hasn’t. I find it imperative to reflect more and more as I seek to take responsibility to create my life and have the impact on the world that I intend. This doesn’t happen without doing it […]

A child’s fantasy (reflections on a river)

September 28, 2015

“Life is a river. You’re floating, beating back the current. A man, standing, canoes by. He runs into a rock and falls on his ass. His dog paddles up to him. Your friends are behind you. They are there, but they are not you.” This was the line of thinking my brain found its way […]

Die while you still can

August 31, 2015

“All goes onward and outward . . . . and nothing collapses, / And to die is different from what any one supposed, and luckier. // Has any one supposed it lucky to be born? / I hasten to inform him or her it is just as lucky to die, and I know it.” – […]

A Tentative Hypothesis on How to Live – Not Merely Be Alive

August 19, 2015

“… awareness of what is so real and essential, so hidden in plain sight all around us, all the time, that we have to keep reminding ourselves over and over: ‘This is water, this is water.’ // It is unimaginably hard to do this, to stay conscious and alive in the adult world day in […]

A reflection on loneliness

August 12, 2015

This post is about loneliness. It’s about the ways in which I crave it, cultivate it, complain about it, long for its death, and grieve over it. The truth is, I spend quite a bit of time feeling lonely, and I spend even more time analyzing it, fighting it, and hoping that someday someone will […]

Confessions of an overachiever

August 10, 2015

I have a confession: I’m an overachiever, and I’m insatiable. I love to play the underdog, wear the chip on my shoulder, feel like I’ve overcome some unfair handicap, and exceed everyone’s expectations. And it seems like I can never get enough. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a perfectionist who binges […]
