Before You Pray For Yourself, Pray For Someone Else
Before You Pray For Yourself, Pray For Someone Else

Before You Pray For Yourself, Pray For Someone Else

Promise me, that before you pray for yourself, before you ask for something from something out there; pray for someone else, pray for someone else’s good, then ask for what you want and need. It won’t hurt to send love and blessings somewhere else, there will be plenty left over for you.

Everything Is An In Between…

Everything Is An In Between…

In between life and death. In between death and re-birth. In between exhale and inhale. In between the dots on our calendars. In between sleeping and waking. In between going and arriving. In between eyes open and closed. In between everything is so much more than the thing we think is anything. It’s not the dots on a timeline that matter most, it’s the space in between that shaped history. Meditation is tapping into that everything. It’s the immense everything in every moment that we call in between waking up and making coffee and getting to work and touching our laptops and making that call we have to make and …

The Energy Of Potential

The Energy Of Potential

We live in difficult times. War and violence, racism and hatred, and socioeconomic and environmental concerns have left many of us fatigued and fearful. What practices and strategies can we summon from life to aid us in facing the chaos of the world? What practices can help us enact an ethic of healing, especially as activists and allies, so that we can live boldly instead of lashing out or shutting down? What is needed right now? This is a thought and energy that I can feel very potently circulating the globe. We are in a time of mass uncovering, things are being revealed at a rapid rate. The energy of potential and healing and growing is tremendous. It is here. How can we …

Sustainable Thinking

Sustainable Thinking

We are so obsessed with this word lately – Sustainable: Sustainable 1. able to be maintained at a certain rate or level. “sustainable fusion reactions” 2. able to be upheld or defended. “sustainable definitions of good educational practice” Sustainable happiness. Sustainable fulfillment. We want to just have something that we can maintain, that we can sustain, in a healthy and mindful way. So, lately I’ve been focusing my energy on “Sustainable Perception.” How do I sustain a clear, clean level of perception on and in the world? A perception that heals more than harms? A perception that loves more than hates? A perception that inspires more than diminishes? If I’ve learned anything as a storyteller. Everything …

The Mindful Shift

The Mindful Shift

The Mindful Shift: A movement which takes us from grasping of what we love and know… to truly knowing. Knowing that we only own the the things we let go of. We let go. Now we can live. The art of sitting The art of quiet The art of listening The art of receiving The art of perceiving The art of allowing The art of insight The art of knowledge The art of attachment The art of letting go The art of trusting The art of knowing The art of living.

I Don't Know Why We Got Here

I Don’t Know Why We Got Here

I don’t know how, I mean i know how– the bird and the bees, yes… But the billion other things I don’t know. I know we suffer, but I know we are not meant to suffer. I know that I have to do whatever I have to do, whatever I can to enjoy this moment as much as possible. I know I need to train my perception to realize that for whatever reason (reason doesn’t really matter) I am here and my immediate needs are met. I woke up this morning – Think about it, I woke up this morning, I woke up this morning, Gotta smile when I say …

The Bed Of Nails Theory

The Bed Of Nails Theory

You may have heard that a high-heeled shoe exerts more pressure on the ground than the foot of an elephant. This is the same principle that allows people to lie on a bed of nails without breaking their skin. The bed of nails theory, one nail and the skin is punctured. A whole bed of them, not one of them sticks out enough to puncture the skin. Like lies. Like deception. Like betrayal. I want to think about good qualities too, but I would love a bed of love and kindness and compassion, I would have no problem with getting swallowed up in that bed of nails. That’s the thing, …
