My Services Are Worth More Than This Latte

My Services Are Worth More Than This Latte

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

Why is it that people still ask me to help them with advice — in exchange for coffee? Don’t get me wrong. I like coffee. And I couldn’t be happier that you are finally waking up and ready for big change. Or that you are leaving one job to start your own. (Congrats, you’re an inspiration.) But the “pick your brain” email has become something of a problem for many entrepreneurs. Work is work, inspiration is work, art is work, so all those people are essentially asking for free work. There’s no latte on Earth (even with Starbucks’ newly-raised prices) that would cover what my consulting, story for corporate, entertainment charges to come to your office, interview …

I Created Me… And You Can Create You

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

So, prepare yourself. B/c our entire life changes in a moment. That’s it. One moment.

Change the world! Right Now, Just Start, Right Now

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

Go right to STEP 2 – we gotta go past step 1 and right to 2. It’s not, “Make money, change the world.” It’s just – change the world and then make money. Or just change the fucking world, right here, right now, with what you got, with a smile, with your voice, with action and your unique you-ness, change that shit, because we need it. It’s not make money make art, just make art… It’s not pay rent, then write; just write and then you will still pay rent… No more excuses, no more.

Everything Created Must First Be Imagined

Everything Created Must First Be Imagined

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

Einstein wasn’t just smart, I mean, yeah the dude was smart, but more importantly his imagination was BOOM BANG – out of this world! Literally and figuratively, he was imagining what others couldn’t, he saw what could be, and turned it into what is. IMAGINATION goes hand in hand with HOPE. IMAGINATION / HOPE HOPE / IMAGINATION It’s medicine. The medicine to explore what can be. For the sick and trauma filled I work with, through the power of story we tap into imagination, we tap into what was and what could be. This what could be, this imagination and hope is essential to recovery, essential to life. I gotta know there is …

I Don't Know Why We Got Here

I Don’t Know Why We Got Here

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

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 …

We Have To Be Better Pigeons

We Have To Be Better Pigeons

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

Why pigeons? Pigeons are everywhere. They are vegetarians, (unless they are in NY) which is sustainable. What is commonly referred to as a pigeon is actually a “Rock Dove”- which is cool. The pigeon has contributed to both World War I and II, notably by the Australian, French, German, American, and UK forces. Thirty-two pigeons have been decorated with the Dickin Medal for war contributions, including Commando, G.I. Joe, Paddy, and William of Orange. A grand ceremony was held in Buckingham Palace to commemorate a platoon of pigeons that braved the battlefields of Normandy to deliver vital plans to Allied forces on the fringes of Germany. Three of the actual …

Stregth Hacks: A Cheat Sheet For Getting Stronger

Stregth Hacks: A Cheat Sheet For Getting Stronger

by in Moving & Eating.

1. Lift Heavy Weights! 80-90% of 1RM loads should be used. It is obvious but it needs to be number one priority. 2. Focus on technique whenever you lift. Concentrate on creating as much tension as possible and make your warm up sets feel like work sets. 3. Focus your sessions on 3-4 big exercises. Anymore and you loose focus and cant maintain intensity. 4. Don’t train for longer than 45-60mins, this will help keep your hormones in check and keep you focused. 5. Following training Whey protein is the best to consume as it is the quickest to be digested. 6. Rest as needed. If you are lifting super …

Food— The Good Times And The Bad

Food— The Good Times And The Bad

by in Moving & Eating.

We still look to food to do much more than nourish our bodies and satisfy our hunger. We turn to food in times of great joy and great sadness. When something wonderful happens, we celebrate with a dinner out. We drink champagne, we eat cake, we splurge on nice meals. Food becomes part of the rejoicing. And the opposite is true, too. There’s a long tradition of providing food to those who are grieving. We band together to provide meals to friends in crisis—you may, at some point in your life, have signed up on a spreadsheet or email thread to bring meals to someone mourning, someone recovering, someone struggling. …

If You Ingest Without Excretion You Will Die

If You Ingest Without Excretion You Will Die

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

If you ingest without excretion you will die. You can not take in without letting out. This is true for food and knowledge. Knowledge without some outside function is toxic. Spiritual food without some sort of sharing is spiritual indigestion. We must let out for all that we put in. We must give for all that we take. Vice versa – we must put in if we let too much go.

Another Level Of Being In The World Is Coming

Another Level Of Being In The World Is Coming

by in Mindfulness & Spirituality, Moving & Eating.

Together, we are cracking the categories of being. We must crack the present model of life which generates stress in search of development. This present model of stress allows men to be killed and their killers to walk away without any repercussions. The current model has board game reality show host as presidential candidates. The current model allows anyone to get a gun in Walmart. The current model says all this is our right and our duty. The current model has cracks, it is our right and our duty to find these cracks, we are here to find the cracks. Cracks create openings, openings are the discovery of the new …

Things Are Not Getting Worse, They're Just Getting Uncovered

Things Are Not Getting Worse, They’re Just Getting Uncovered

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

Things are being revealed. We are unearthing the cracks in the system. Look deep enough and you will find flaws. Give it time and the flaws will reveal themselves. We are covered in flaws and imperfections- they have forced themselves to the surface. The world is now on notice, the world is not (hopefully) aware, conscious, and present that we need more love, that our actions matter, that we can not be innocent bystanders. We are realizing how much we are soaked in fear, doubt and worry. We are noticing that most people exist in a state of lack and fear their inherent survival. We are hearing the cries and the …

To Many People Want To Figure It Out

To Many People Want To Figure It Out

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

To many people want to figure it out. They are waiting for the “right” moment. “For this to fall into place”, “only when this happens”, “once this happens, this will happen then this…” Just do something. Just start. And then guess what, life and that project that thing you just did will show you what you need to do next, all that thinking, you won’t have to do it because you’ll be doing. Stop figuring it out and start doing it. We don’t have to know “how’s”. How’s are revealed. How’s are what people who aren’t doing study. How’s are great, but they’re usually a map of someone else how’s. …

Stop Chasing It

Stop Chasing It

by in General, Moving & Eating.

Stop chasing it. Just stop. Stop reaching and grasping. Stop the wanting, like all that reaching and wanting is gonna make it happen, it’s not. Your grasping for air. Your talking. Show me something you can actually do. Nor will that thing do what your imagination thinks it will do. That thing is small, that thing is keeping you blind, that think you don’t have is not letting you see and use what you do have. So stop chasing. Just stop and see that you got some beautiful tools at your disposal right here right now.   This is a home for all things related to maximizing ones life. Join us.

If I Give Up, Then Mankind Will Lose It's Storyteller

If I Give Up, Then Mankind Will Lose It’s Storyteller

by in Moving & Eating.

Give up? If I give up, then mankind will lose its storyteller. And if mankind loses its storyteller, then it will lose its childhood. Men, women, and children will look for me – me, their storyteller, their bard, their choirmaster – because they need me more than anything in the world. To show them the veins of leaves, and the houses within houses. To speak of liberation. Story is a device to free us from wherever we are stuck. I have to liberate them. I have to tell them, “You’ve been whole form the very beginning! You’ve been okay since day one. Big mistake to become whole again. Why would …

In The Noisy Confusion Of Life, Keep Peace In Your Soul

In The Noisy Confusion Of Life, Keep Peace In Your Soul

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

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexatious to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing …
