3 Lessons Learned

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Lessons Learned   My 8-year plus journey to change my thoughts, and subsequently my life, has taught me many lessons. I’ll now share them with you. Changing your thoughts won’t work unless you believe. If you’ve been struggling to change your life then this might well be the key. You must deny your conditioning. In time, science will catch up with spirituality and somebody will be able to measure the correlation between our thoughts and our lives, but for now you will have to rely on faith. Don’t be a skeptic like me. There is already some evidence to suggest that in our purest form we are energy subject to the vibration of …

Are You On The Back Burner?

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Loving oneself is not a new age notion, it is our right. Stop waiting to become, you are! It scientifically heals you. Loving oneself is cracking open the potential of the mind and body. Love, Joy, and Health are the natural state.  Loving oneself opens the door to wholeness and wellbeing. Opens the door for others to begin loving themselves. Every choice you make will wither enhance your spirit or will drain your spirit. It’s a step toward love or a step away. You know you are on the right path when you are not put in a position to betray yourself anymore. Not put in a position where you feel like …

Letting Go: Meditation & Freedom

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Meditation only becomes real, powerful, authentic, and liberating when it is a practice of letting everything go. Otherwise it is reduced to little more than a psycho-spiritual relaxation technique. It may make you feel better, but it won’t set you free. Feeling better and being free don’t necessarily mean the same thing. Feeling better is relative; being free is not. Ultimately, freedom of any kind- financial, spiritual, freedom from time, etc. depends on how profound is your ability to let go of everything—and not just once, but over and over again. If you understand what it means to let go of everything, you know everything you need to know about meditation. Then your …

Practice and Believe

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

“You are packing a suitcase for a place none of us have been. You must believe it, in order for us to see it” – U2 The packing is the practice. The belief is knowing its doing its job. Practice + Belief = Becoming The higher the greats climb, the greater the need for practice. Everyone you admire has worked countless hours to make it look effortless. In an orderly universe with universal order there is no way that you can get nothing for something. Also known as, what you give you get back; sometimes ten fold. Newtons law of attraction says everything you do has an equal and or positive reaction… Knowing this, let us give freely and …

Authentic Happiness

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

We are what we repeatedly do, excellence then is not a thought but a habit. – Aristotle & Happiness Matters. That’s a scientific fact. The most popular class (hands down) at Harvard is positive psychology; that’s no coincidence.  Happiness: The overall experience of pleasure in me. We set goals and then we reach for them; happiness is the experience of climbing towards the peak, not the arrival. For what is your purpose? For what were you made? For what were you born? Everything: A horse, a vine, is created for some duty. I write this post from a special place, I’m making my dreams come true and experiencing the magic of life. If I followed others solely, then …

A Commitment to Oneself

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Something profound happens at a soul level when someone makes a commitment to their own spiritual development. No one forces you to do it. It is freely chosen. And, of course, when you make that commitment, you don’t really know what you are committing to. But what you do know is that it’s a commitment to that which is absolute, to that which is non-relative, to that which is inconceivable, to that which means everything, forever. That much you do know. I’ve always felt that once someone freely chooses to make that commitment, once you say yes to the Absolute, to God you are, the God within, there is no going back, even if you …

Emotions holding us back

Are Emotions Holding You Back?

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Are Emotions Holding You Back In a recent survey, psychologists named emotions as their clients’ “top obstacle” to weight loss. The 1300+ licensed psychologists, to fill in the picture, also cited emotional eating as well as food selection and exercise commitment among the common challenges their clients faced. Sure, it’s maybe little surprise that psychologists would emphasize the role emotional issues play in weight loss. It’s their profession after all, and their clients comprise a self-selected group of people who are interested in delving into the emotional dimensions of their weight management struggles. That said, I know plenty of trainers (myself included), doctors, and dietitians (Primally focused or otherwise) who would suggest …

Happiness is A Field

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

We build this field, through the seeds we plant, and the relationships we water and feed. We reap what we sow.  Hanging out with the right people Finding each other—finding those other individuals who also feel as passionately as you do about the kind of change and growth you strive for is essential. These other like minded individuals  are essential in liberating our own spirits, inspiring us, and providing us the courage to take very bold steps that we otherwise might not take. Consciousness is a field For years and years, we’ve said theoretically that consciousness is a field, but now through new technologies and new research, we’re finding out that this is …

A Collective Emergence

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

An Essay by Andrew Cohen A Collective Emergence The purpose ofcollective practice and inquiry in the context of Evolutionary Enlightenment is to engage directly with the developrnent ofconsciousness. Consciousness is not an individual; it is the intersubjective field that we all share, so when a group of individuals come together in this context, that collective represents consciousness itself. When you come together with others to inquire into the most fundamental spiritual and philosophical principles, you should begin to ask yourself, what is it that captivates your attention? Is it any of the other individuals, or is it what emerges between the individuals? What you will discover, if you are authentically engaging …

What is Lifestyle Dezine?

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

What do you want your days filled with? Do you hope to travel, spend time with friends and family, take up new hobbies or volunteer to support a cause? Is it ever work if its only what you love? Why reach for retirement when its all so fulfilling? Why does it have to be the end goals? Why cant life be about the experience – THE NOW. Thats what life is, a collection of moments and experiences.  Why do most of us go to college, find a good job and spend 30-40 years of our lives climbing the corporate ladder only to retire when we’re past our prime? Why not live …

Being a Leader. Standing For Truth

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

We have to ask ourselves: What kind of world do we want to live in? What kind of world do we want our children—and their children—to live in? What is our role or contribution in bringing about this new world? When you ask yourself these questions, you live these questions. And you realize that you’re not alone but part of a huge impulse in collective consciousness. When you realize this, it energizes you and gives you passion for what you want to create right in this moment. Are you someone who’s willing to stand for the truth and reality of Spirit in a disbelieving world? Why is it important that …

DeZine- A little More Fabulous (Why the Z?)

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

  Like A Strong and Ripped Buddha – purely beautiful, inside and out. What does it really mean to consciously evolve? To deliberately and intentionally create and co-create the future?  It gets clearer and clearer to me every day that it really is up to us— each and every one of us, individually and collectively— to create the future that we hope for in our highest moments. When we reach that point in our own development where we unequivocally have accepted the fact that no one else is going to save us — not a mythic God in the sky or “destiny” or a miracle — we realize that: The …

5 Limiting Beliefs That Hold Us Back

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

“I am, by calling, a dealer in words; and words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind.” – Rudyard Kipling 1. Life is fair Living life trying to secure justice never pays off. Well, unless you’re an attorney, then maybe. There will be lots of times when life is unfair. It sucks but “it is what it is.” The sooner you accept that and stop wasting your energy wishing it wasn’t, the more of your life you’ll actually participate in. There are plenty of things in life that are fair too. Your new assignment is to seek them out. You will find what you go looking for. You will get …

The Great Dictator

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Transcript Below: “I’m sorry but I don’t want to be an Emperor, that’s not my business. I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone if possible, Jew, gentile, black man, white. We all want to help one another, human beings are like that. We all want to live by each other’s happiness, not by each other’s misery. We don’t want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone and the earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful. But we have lost the way. Greed has poisoned men’s souls, has …

Habits Habits Habits: The Science

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Part of 1 of our 3 part Habit series – Not simply changing but becoming – Habits and how they shape is. … Gets way less clinical in parts 2 and 3 For better or for worse, our habits shape us. No getting around it. A good habit is a strong ally in our journey to becoming who want to be, while a bad habit acts like a millstone around our necks. To achieve our goals, whatever they may be, it’s necessary to defeat our bad habits and encourage the good ones. But how do you go about doing that? Actually doing it, not for 3 days but for a lifetime, how do we …

What It Means To Be Cultured

… Or one of my favorite letters ever (I love letters)! Anton Chekhov to his brother, so beautifully honest! MOSCOW, 1886. … You have often complained to me that people “don’t understand you”! Goethe and Newton did not complain of that…. Only Christ complained of it, but He was speaking of His doctrine and not of Himself…. People understand you perfectly well. And if you do not understand yourself, it is not their fault. I assure you as a brother and as a friend I understand you and feel for you with all my heart. I know your good qualities as I know my five fingers; I value and deeply respect them. …
