Does it make a difference if you are driven by love vs hate?
Does it make a difference if you are driven by love vs hate?

Does it make a difference if you are driven by love vs hate?

Do you want justice because you hate suffering? Or do you want justice because you love justice? Do you hate what’s happening? Or do you imagine a world where all people get what they deserve? What’s your approach? What’s your angle? Can you do both? Can it all live inside you? Does it make a difference if you are driven by love vs hate? What can we relearn? Not all darkness is bad. Not all shadowy places are scary. Not all secrets are shameful. Not all pain is evil. it’s never too late to ask questions. It’s never too late. If you find joy and value in what I do …

Never Surrender To Distraction!

Never Surrender To Distraction!

Personally, I do, all the time. And I have to remind myself (all the time), pretty much everything I interact with is trying to distract me, trying to take me from myself, trying to sell me something, an idea or a product. Just think about how much we spend on our phones. Distracted time checking-in, feeding on feeds and scrolls, and we still find ourselves feeding. How much of that distracted time can we put towards being in the world, towards being engaged with others, towards being with ourselves, being engaged with ourselves? I figure a lot. When we check out from distraction we get sight, we get to see …

Inside my body is the energy of 30 Hydrogen bombs

All physical matter as we know it is made of energy. And all physical matter can be converted back into energy. And it takes a tremendous amount of energy to make even a single particle of matter. In the human body there is 7 x 10 to the 18th power jewels of energy… Which translates and is equivalent to 30 Hydrogen Bombs. Inside my body is the energy of 30 Hydrogen bombs. This is a fact. Right here right now I have the power of 30 Hydrogen bombs, and what am I gonna do with it? What are you gonna do with it?   If you find joy and value …

Your Desire For Love Will Just Keep Coming and Coming and Coming

Your Desire For Love Will Just Keep Coming and Coming and Coming

I invite you to meditate on the relentlessness of your yearning for love. Recognize the fact that your eternal longing will never leave you in peace. Accept that it will forever delight you, torment you, inspire you, and bewilder you — whether you are alone or in the throes of a complicated relationship. Understand that your desire for love will just keep coming and coming and coming, keeping you slightly off-balance and pushing you to constantly revise your ideas about who you are. Now read this declaration from the poet Rilke and claim it as your own: “My blood is alive with many voices that tell me I am made …

Stories Have The Power To Move Us

Stories Have The Power To Move Us

The woman next to me on the plane just fist pumped, a powerful and unapologetic fist pump when the basketball went in the hoop during a game of one on one between the good guy and the bad guy on The CW’s “One Tree Hill.” It was the last shot, slow motion, and he (our hero) sunk it and she clenched her fist and pumped it! She was happy. Happy for our hero, happy for her, happy on the inside. She was happy. Stories have the power to move us. To make us happy. To make us fist pump no matter where we are. To make us smile. To move …

Calm Your Curls

Calm Your Curls (a Dominican boys hair journey through Hollywood)

Original Article My grandma used to say, “tu eres el mejor actor en todo el Mundo.” She was right, I’m a pretty great actor, the best in the world is a big statement, but sure, thanks Grandma. Oh, and watch out Denzel. But my Grandma didn’t know the rules and walls I would be up against. Honestly, neither did I. “Mission number 1 in LA: Go unnoticed, sort of, blend in. Not too edgy. Not too soft. Be you, if you are something we all see you as, make sense? It’s tough. Be the best and stand out while blending in. Got it? It takes time, practice, and thick skin, …
