The Radiance Sutra (One of The Teachings of Buddha)

by in General, Moving & Eating.

Happy Sunday! The Radiance Sutra: Sting of a wasp, rip of a nail, a razors slice, the needles plunge. A piercing word, a stab of betrayal, the boundary crossed, a trust broken. In this lacerating moment, pain is all you know. Life is tattooing scripture into your flesh. Scribing incandescence into your nerves. Right here. In this single searing point of intolerable concentration, Wound becomes portal. Dive through to the wild brilliance of the Self. Much love to you! (That’s I, not the Sutra) This always rings true to me, always lights a fire in me. I feel it’s truth. What from this resonates in you? What does it invoke? …

Raw Foods And Performance

by in General, Moving & Eating.

Raw Foods and Performance. We have all heard about raw, uncooked foods, their benefits and why we should eat them.

Steve Jobs on Not Settling

by in General, Moving & Eating.

In his now-legendary 2005 Stanford commencement address, an absolute treasure in its entirety, Steve Jobs makes an eloquent case for not settling in the quest for finding your calling — a case that rests largely on his insistence upon the power of intuition “Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, …

Desiderata by Max Ehrmann

by in General, 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 …

When he had gone about three blocks, he met an old man. He was sitting in the park, just staring at some pigeons. The boy sat down next to him and opened his suitcase. He was about to take a drink from his root beer when he noticed that the old man looked …

Born To Move

Diet Essentials (For Me): “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” – Michael Pollan In Defense of Food Enzymes: What you eat matters, the essential nutrients that your body actually receives, breaksdown, and digests are even more important. Enzymes are naturally occurring in all food, they are the bridge for nutrients from food to body. When we cook food we kill some of the naturally occurring enzymes, taking supplements with every meal will aid in digestion and absorption. I avoid Gluten whenever possible (unless it’s Pecan Pie): Vegetables, beans, legumes, fruit, animal and fish protein have been around for  millions of years. Grains for process and consumption, Less than 10,000. …

Lifestyle Dezine

LifeStyle Dezine

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

LifeStyle Dezine is a movement. A freedom, to just BE. It’s a way to tap into that global shift of consciousness. It’s necessary and vital. It’s yours, it’s mine, it’s everyone’s, and it’s no ones. It’s a philosophy. It’s going back to 1, to the basics. It’s the little things. It’s our dreams and nightmares. It’s shutting off our minds and rediscovering our guts. It’s a contradiction. It’s an understanding. It’s the rules of nature and the universe. It’s an apology, forgiveness, and acceptance. It’s reaching for the stars and keeping your feet on the ground. It’s turning money into love. It’s believing in abundance. It’s I love you, not …
