If you’re new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting! I hear people say it all the time, “if only I had a clone”. You Don’t Want A Clone Why? So, you couldn’t experience something. You have work you’d rather someone else would do? You have a bunch of things, task, that you wish someone else could do?

Peter Pan Mentality: A Poem To The Boy Who Never Grew Up

Peter Pan Mentality – a poem to those of us so attached to the now, we forget we do live in a world where it’s okay to plug in, play the game, plan, see and conquer the future. It’s okay to want an empire and to make it so. To, the boy who never grew up: “I will not be your Wendy. I will not wait for you while you globe trot, and imagine, and live so desperately for the now you refuse to soften enough to play the game of plugging in and making it happen together. I will not wait for you to find enlightenment… But come back …

“You know it’s real when you are who you think you are.” – Drake
There is a theory that says caveman weren’t drawing what they’d seen, but what they wanted to see – a successful hunt, a abundance of food, animals having babies and multiplying, and because they saw it, crafted it, it became so. You know it’s real when you are what you think you are.

Eating Is A Mindful Practice

Eating Is A Mindful Practice

Eating a meal together is a meditative practice. We should try to offer our presence for every meal. As we serve our food we can already begin practicing. Serving ourselves, we realize that many elements, such as the rain, sunshine, earth, air and love, have all come together to form this wonderful meal. In fact, through this food we see that the entire universe is supporting our existence. We are aware of the whole sangha as we serve ourselves and we should take an amount of food that is good for us. Before eating, the bell will be invited for three sounds and we can enjoy breathing in and out …

Why Is It Always To Late To Help ourselves?

Why Is It Always To Late To Help ourselves?

(I’m still figuring this out myself) On the plane today I overheard one flight attendant to another – “Coffee?” “No, I’m not drinking coffee today, I’m feeling under the weather”… This isn’t the first time I’ve seen this behavior… Why is it that we should eat healthy when we’re sick? We sleep more, we don’t drink, we nap, we drink juices (not Tropicana), we drink a ton of water, we’re gentle on our bodies, we do all the things that would keep us from ever getting sick in the …

Why To Wake Up Early

Why To Wake Up Early

Early morning hours, in my opinion, are precious. They are magical, by far the best time available to us, before the world is doing there thing, you are doing your thing. It’s serene, easy, and available. Somewhere along the way society conditioned us late nights and late mornings, where (most of the time) in nature, the sun goes down, you go down, the sun rises, you rise. I will dive into why to wake up early, why we must work hard for it, and why it’s worth it; then how to wake up early. Why To Wake Up Early 1) early morning energy, waking up between the hours of 4-7 …

Five Things To Contemplate Before Eating

Five Things To Contemplate Before Eating

As a spiritual family and a human family, we can all help avert climate change with the practice of mindful eating. Going vegetarian may be the most effective way to stop climate change. Being vegetarian is already enough to save the world. – from Thich Nhat Hanh’s 2007 “Blue Cliff Letter” This change is a chance for us all to reflect deeply on what we buy and what we eat. What we buy and eat can contribute to climate change, or it can help stop it. Eating is a chance to nourish our own body with the wonders of the cosmos, knowing that we are not destroying the earth by doing so. …
