Go Home, Change The Story

Take all the Villains and turn them into Heroes. Take all the things that went wrong and make them right. Make what should have happened, what did happen. It’s not delusional, it’s truth, believe it. It’s not a lie, the lie is the dark and grim story you tell yourself. How do I know? Because we were not put on this planet to have or achieve or BE anything else but magnificent. Our magnificence, your magnificence. Don’t compare it to someone else’s. This is your story. For some the story ends as a president, for others, a doctor, a monk, a firemen, a wife, a school teacher, a poet, a …

What Unexpected GOOD Will Happen Today?

How many times have you asked that?? Are you ready for all the good that will come your way? Expected and unexpected greatness. Or have you feared the worst? Instead of fearing all the things you wish wouldn’t happen but most likely expect will happen, ask yourself – With the mindset that there is more than enough, nothing but enough GOOD to go around: What good!? All Good! What unexpected good will happen today? What great things will surprise me today? What does the universe have in store for me today? What beautiful lessons will I learn today? Who will I meet? What will I see? Where will the universe …

Efficiency Is The key

We can always do things smarter. Less time, smarter effort, allows us to do more of what we love. People set really unrealistic goals. So for instance, “write book” would be a terrible goal. It’s just not specific. It’s not measurable. I’m very big about setting micro-goals, or very, very small goals. So for that person who needs to write a book, for me a goal would be, “write a hundred words.” Progress is key, progress is hitting those micro-goals. Being “Over whelmed”, stress, lack of day all boils down to the same things – you are not doing what you really want to be doing. You are wasting your …

Just Open The Door

How many times do you see what they can not see? That he/she is no good for them, that job makes them miserable, that they are addicted to the pain, that they probably should order seconds, that they spend money recklessly, that they drink too much, etc… We can’t just tell them, because they might not listen, they might not be ready to hear; and who are we? We can’t tell them, but we can show them. We can open the door and remove a window shade so they can see, but they must make the final decision to walk outside, to tear down the wall, to be free from …

“I know, I know.”

“I know, I know.” “I know, I know.” – you tell someone something that’s what you get, “I know, I know!” I know that you know, but do you believe? Do you own it? We don’t truly believe the things we know are true or right – and it’s not our fault – it’s because we haven’t seen them play out just yet. We haven’t seen them fulfilled or realized. We live in a goal orientated society, but it’s all about the middle, they gray, the little things. Do you truly believe with everything? That it will all be alright, that all you have to do is trust, accept, surrender, …

Honesty… Do Us All A Favor

Saying how we honestly feel. Saying what we honestly need. How many times a day do you get asked and or you ask, “how are you doing?” – and the immediate auto-pilot response is… “Good” Good, always good. Good or tired. I doubt you are just good, I doubt you are just tired- granted sometimes that’s all we are– but more often than not we are neither, we are so many more things: we are overwhelmed, we are vulnerable, we are sad, we are scared, we are anxious, we are loved, we are grateful, we are not good, we are not alright, etc… When was the last time you said …

The Need For Others

Like all things, in moderation. But necessary. One cannot find enlightenment alone – it can’t be found in a cave. The inner work must be done but sooner or later we are going to need the chance to practice love and kindness in and around the presence of others. All the peace, presence, stillness one has when they are alone are great, but if they are thrown out the window the second the get cut off on the highway, or meet an unexpected long line – that is where the work comes into play, where we learn our biggest lessons. “Allow the world to be your teacher” You need the …

Fats, Proteins & then more FAT

Primarily Fats. Great fats. A diet should be composed of %60 fat. Protein can only do its job when the Fat is there. The brain is fueled by fats, not sugars. Our bodies originally (cave man days) got all our energy from Fats and Greens – a.k.a Hunter Gatherers … The only form of Sugar was fruit – which was seasonal – which means it was a treat. 5 servings of fruits and vegetables… Cut out the fruit, think vegetables, vegetables, vegetables!!! At least half your plate filled with RAW VEGETABLES – Primarily GREEN. So, as you begin cutting your sugar and grain intake to ideally none (trust me, you …

Not Childish, Child Like

Child like soul Child like being Minds Imaginations Free spirits – There is nothing wrong with that! You are not childish, you are beautiful and powerful and oh so Child-Like! You are curious. You ask questions because asking questions is how you figure things out. Lots and lots of questions. You hated it when a grown-up told you, “We’ll see.” It’s still unacceptable. Don’t say it yourself. Your body was designed for throwing baseballs, shooting hoops, and jumping off diving boards and stuff. In the secret language of children, the word “fitness” doesn’t exist. It’s called “having fun.” Your world can be half-real and half-imaginary. Food is Energy. You eat …
