I’m A Fool

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

& I’m Weird. & I talk to myself… A Lot. “In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they’re still beautiful.” – Alice Walker, author, poet, activist We all have this deeper darker self that is so far from perfect. We have to embrace it, embrace how necessary it is to our sanity. Because it’s my inner weirdo who has become my creative muse and it’s him who has stormed onto all my expression, all my art- at once despicable and lovable. And yes, he adores donuts (From Randy’s) just a little too much. He is my shadow. He is …

Be Gentle

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

With Yourself. With The World. Especially with yourself. The World wants you to be in Peace. Wants you to be a shining beacon of light. Wants you to be Strong. So that they can be guided by you. Hang on to your strength and power in troubled times. For that to happen we have to Forgive ourselves. Accept ourselves. Because whatever the EGO hasn’t worked out will be projected onto the world. Know that you’re great. You’re Powerful. You’re Brave. You’re Wise. You’re Beautiful. You are More than enough. You are so perfect. You are Gentle. Be Gentle. Be Light- we can’t see without it. … If You Enjoyed This …

Put In The Effort To Make It Work

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

It will Work. The only way to Transformation is through the Inner Work. It will work. But prepared to put in the Work. All that you deserve has to be Earned. Through the Inner Work – Prayer, meditation, sacrifice, dessert trips, fasting, falling and rising, forgiveness, love. We have to be Willing to Allow everything that doesn’t serve us (doubt, fear, angst, pain, etc.) to Rise to the top and just vaporize. We must be Grateful for the Work. For the ability to put in the Effort, for the lessons, strength and knowledge acquired from the Work. Walk around and away from nothing – – – Walk THROUGH Everything! Transformation …

What is Your “WHY”?

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

“What are you doing this to yourself for?” 4 other “WHY’s” to help you find your path: 1.  What Is Your Title? – If you are going to use words to describe yourself, you should have both an understanding of their definitions and a pride in their significance.  And then you should strive with all your power to constantly live up to them. 2.  What Is Your Gift? – Second, I believe if you have gifts, it is your responsibility to use them.  And whether you think it or not, you have gifts.  You have a body and a brain that no company or amount of money can reproduce and …

Keep Filling Yourself

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Cut off a little piece of skin. Then a little more. Now reach inside, a little deeper and pull out everything that doesn’t serve you.  NOW Fill yourself with everything you want to become. Everything you know you are. Everything you deserve.  Don’t close the opening, patch it up. experiment. Some of it will feel right, some of it will feel wrong, don’t be attached to it.

No More Excuses

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

  Start. Right Now.  What do you want? Grab it, sacrifice all and make it happen.  Easy as that. Easier said than done – no one said the work would be easy.  But you will never know how fulfilling it is falling trying to do the thing you love, and how much drive you will have to get back up unless you begin – right now.  You have the money you need. If you wait you’ll never have the money you think you will need.  You have the skills needed. If you never begin you will never have the skills you think you need.  Everything needed you already have.  You …

If Tomorrow Wasn’t Promised

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

What would you give for today? Forget everything else. Forget there were any sunlight left. What would you spend today? Thinking about yourself or the man beside you? One opportunity in life. One chance to do whatever you are going to do. Whatever mark you will make. Leave you legacy. And that’s judged by effort and nothing else. Nobody can judge effort, that’s yours. Everyday is a new day, every moment is a new moment. That means you are not anything that came before you. Not 5 minutes ago, not yesterday, only RIGHT NOW. Show the world you are a different creature NOW than you were 5 minutes ago. Angry …

Conformity … Be Careful

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

“Everything around you that you call life was made up by people who are no smarter than you.” -Steve Jobs 1. Ask why. Why do you do the things you do? What are your motivations? Not enough people are asking these questions. Join us who are 2. Live a big life! Pursue big dreams! Be your own superhero and do something suitably audacious. Not only is it OK, it’s probably also beneficial to other people who will be inspired by your courage. 3. It’s not all about you. Most people in the world are not fortunate to live such unconventional lives, so we have to find a way to serve …

Things To Worry About

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

On August 8th of 1933, author F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote the following letter of advice to his 11-year-old daughter, “Scottie,” who was away at camp. (Source: F. Scott Fitzgerald: A Life in Letters ; Image: Fitzgerald with both his daughter, “Scottie,” and wife, Zelda, via.) Dear Pie: I feel very strongly about you doing duty. Would you give me a little more documentation about your reading in French? I am glad you are happy — but I never believe much in happiness. I never believe in misery either. Those are things you see on the stage or the screen or the printed pages, they never really happen to you in …

How To Get Up and Do It When You Really Don’t Want To

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Have a roster of workout buddies: When you’re not motivated to do a workout, you need someone else to do the pushing for you. But what if your regular workout buddy is similarly unmotivated for the day? Having several fitness-minded friends to call on when you need that extra push can be all you need to (reluctantly) get on with your workout. Just get dressed: Go to bed wearing your workout clothes! Breaking up all those pre-workout tasks into smaller goals can make a dreaded exercise routine seem more manageable. Telling yourself to just put on your clothes to see how you feel can be all you need to realize that you’ve …

Look UP

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Right Now. Look Up.  Breathe. Smile. Laugh. Cry. Simply take a moment to just BE.  With yourself, by yourself. Look up at the Stars, the moon, a bright blue sky, a cloudy sky, just look up. If you are inside, walk outside, open a window, everything will still be there when you et back. See, feel that there is more than what’s in front of you. More than our deadlines, more that our computer screens, more than our slight burdens. Look Up. And say “Thanks” to the many blessings in your incredible life. … If you enjoyed this article please consider Subscribing.

How to Find Your Purpose and Do What you LOVE

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

“Find something more important than you are and dedicate your life to it.” – philosopher Dan Dennett Gathered are thoughts from thinkers who have spent countless hours contemplating making a living off of doing what you love… “Every few months, I rediscover and redevour” Y-Combinator founder Paul Graham’s fantastic 2006 article, How to Do What You Love. It’s brilliant in its entirety, but the part I find of especial importance and urgency is his meditation on social validation and the false merit metric of “PRESTIGE” “What you should not do, I think, is worry about the opinion of anyone beyond your friends. You shouldn’t worry about prestige. Prestige is the opinion of the rest …

Endure The Pain

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

The world is so constructed that if you wish to enjoy its pleasures, you must also endure its pains. Like it or not, you cannot have one without the other. Success is not measured by what you accomplish. It’s measured by the opposition you encounter, and the courage with which you maintain your struggle against the odds. You’ll find all things are difficult before they are easy. The greater your obstacles, the more glory in overcoming them. So, make up your mind before you start – sacrifice is part of the package. No pain, no gain; No thorns, no throne; No cross, no crown. You’ve got to go through the …

The Answer I Seek

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

Is Within Me. Every time. Always. We can get advise from others. We can talk about it. But eventually we will need to confront ourselves. See that everything we feel we allow ourselves to feel. Everywhere we are, we put ourselves there. We hear what you want to hear, and see what we want to see. If something doesn’t feel right it’s because it probably isn’t. All those opinions will most likely end up confusing us, they may help tease it out, but the best way to find guidance is to step away from the problem and create space for our inner wisdom to express and be heard. Time spent …

Worry Less Giggle More

by in General, Mindfulness & Spirituality.

LAUGHTER IS THE BEST MEDICINE. Laughter relaxes the whole body. A good, hearty laugh relieves physical tension and stress, leaving your muscles relaxed for up to 45 minutes after. Laughter boosts the immune system. Laughter decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies, thus improving your resistance to disease. Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. Endorphins promote an overall sense of well-being and can even temporarily relieve pain. Laughter protects the heart. Laughter improves the function of blood vessels and increases blood flow, which can help protect you against a heart attack and other cardiovascular problems. Laughter dissolves distressing emotions. You can’t feel …
